I WISH IT WERE SUMMER!!
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 silverpennyartisan.etsy.com 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...
