A Lisa Lodge (Pine Ridge Treasures..on Facebook) blog hop bead challenge.

I love these challenges!!  I learn so much about myself; stretch the bounds of my creativity!!  I recommend something like this to all artisans.

The premise is this:  Lisa announces a theme.  You buy the kit sight unseen; with just a couple of clues. What we knew about this kit was that it might contain cultured sea glass, glass, plated metal, and other surprises (you see... no 2 kits are alike).  My surprises were charms (stars), Picture Jaspar, glass pearls, and some lovely findings (clasps, hooks, spacers)

Here is a picture of the items I received:

You all know I LOVE this selection!  My ideas were flowing like nearby Niagara Falls!  Here is aa picture of ALL of my items I thought I would use with my new treasures!

You are absolutely right.....a wee bit overwhelming!

After narrowing down my choices I made a bracelet, a pair of earrings and 2 necklaces.  I hope you like them!  Please leave comments below.

The following is the same necklaces with a view of how it hangs.

I love them all but this last one is my very favorite!! Not sure yet, I might just keep it.  

Thank you all for visiting.  Please follow me for more blog hop challenges, sightseeing, fashion tips, visiting with your favorite artist.  I have restructured my blog.  I will post the  schedule in my next post.

These items will be for sale at Monday 2/27/16.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!!!

Have a great day!!!

Please visit my fellow bloggers; see what was in their kits...

  1. Hi Rosee, You are right the last necklace is the most unique. My favorite is the earrings though.

  2. I love all your pieces, and the necklaces are pretty cool. Picture jasper is a favorite of mine! Love the color scheme in the bracelet, but the simple earrings are just my personal choice...I love me some earrings!

    1. :) I know Beth!! I make all the other types...but I have a soft spot for earrings. Thank you for all of your kind words!!

  3. WOW! absolutely stunning! I'd have a hard time picking a favorite but I definitely think you should "treat" yourself and keep the last necklace!

  4. Wow! I just love the goodies that you started with and how you put them together. They are all great but I really like that last necklace. I would keep it for a treat for myself also.

  5. Rosee - I love your jewelry collection! Picture jasper is my favorite gemstone - so I adore your necklace. I also really like the bracelet. Thanks so much for being in the hop. You always make such creative designs.
