Lisa Lodge has organized another wonderful blog hop with winter sparkle in mind. I love the sparkle idea but after the winter we’ve had I’m ready to put Winter behind. The color beads I got were plumy purples which I love. I added some crystal beads for a little more sparkle. I challenged myself to use all of the beads to see how many pieces I could get and almost came close as I think there are only about 24 beads left.
Thanks Lisa for another wonderful hop, I always look forward to them. For more info on Lisa’s hops check out her web site here and also for the list of the rest of the participants.
The first necklace I created kind of a layered look and also incorporated a little bit of bead weaving that I haven’t done before. I’m pleased with how it turned out.
The second picture has a bracelet and the earrings I made by putting beads on the jump rings and then attaching them to chain.
The necklace in the third photo started out as earrings until I found out I was missing a spacer so then it became a necklace. After I had it all made I found my bag of spacers back but I wasn’t going to take it apart.
