Almost another month gone by. This time the Blog Hop sponsored by Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures is entitled "Gentle Spring".

I received a generous sampling of shades of lavender and purple along with silver toned findings to work with.

                                               Oh, and some hemp cord I will use another day!

I asked my friend Lisa Knappenberger if she had any general thoughts on what I should do and she said "Dangles".  I really enjoyed working with these beads and especially like the kind of periwinkle lavender sea glass beads.

  Completed necklace and earrings and the toggle with silver beads I added to obtain the length needed for the second strand

The bracelet is still floating along in my poor little head!

Ceramic Blog Hop

Here I am again. This time I am participating in a Ceramic Blog Hop sponsored by Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures. I purchased this kit knowing it would contain some ceramic beads as well as other materials to work with.  My focal bead is this cute little owl. He has a couple of friends to hang out with, as well as ceramic beads, metal beads. I also received a nice strand  of small white glass pearls.

So I started playing around, moving
the beads around a bit....

Here are my completed necklace and earrings.

And a simple strung bracelet. I had been wanting a pearl bracelet, so I made one using memory wire, with a dangle at the end
