Pine Ridge Favorite Things Challenge

Today is the reveal of the Favorite Things Blog Hop and Challenge
I use My I phone as my camera and lately my photo's haven't been publishing right side up.  I am having real issues and may have to get a camera Black Friday, I digress. Anyway A grateful Artist, Lisa Lodge who is the Hostess sent participants a kit of Beady items that are her favorites. We are also allowed to use our stash.
My kit copper findings Pearls and Jasper Nuggets
Loved those beautiful pearls and decided they needed to be clustered. From My stash I added Glass Spectra beads. Now, I must say, I expected a Kit of Sea Glass.  I thought that Sea glass was her Favorite thing, because I discovered Sea glass from her through her facebook group.
Glass pearls,Czech glass beads and Spectra bead dangles



I took the dangles and Jasper and created this bracelet using Copper Wire.I also made the Copper Clasp.


Now one of my favorite things are Cameo's. I always set my Cameo in Brass mounts.  This one from B'sue Boutiques as well as the Spectra beads.  So I took this gorgeous glass domed Cameo Lady and added some of these dangles


In my stash of Gemstones which are my favorites things, lol  I have some Aqua Terra Jasper. That matched the ribbons on the lady in the cameo. Lisa's Czech glass beads and Pearls complimented her gown beautifully and made for a great composition for my Necklace.

The lighting not so good.  We been expierencing some rain in New York this week. I love this Jasper.  It is Aqua in coloring with Sand/Tan colored veining. This is a bold Statement piece and I hope you like it.




Now I am going to hop around to the other participants in this Hop. Please drop me a line, come back for a visit  and "Wear Vintage its New Again"

  4. I love both of your pieces! The peals, Czech glass and spectra beads look great together in both the bracelet and the necklace. You used some of the same beads to make one funky piece and one elegant piece. Great job!

      I love that I received enough materials for more than one piece, I luv the fancy Opulence, but hey a girl can't dress like that everyday (or can she, lol) so I also neede a Funky everyday piece. thanks for joining me.
