Today is the reveal of Pine Ridge Beach Blog Hop sponsored by Lisa Lodge.  Thank you Lisa for the gorgeous Kit.  The primary elements in our kits are sea glass.  I was able to create my pieces and complete two challenges in one, lol I am so tickled. These are the strands of Sea Glass and brass elements I received:
The challenge for me were those tiny multi colored disk beads. So I began to lay things out

Designs started formulating.  I wanted a long Necklace and found this beautiful focal bead that matched all that glass. Well I needed a tassel and the orange tear drops would work.Might also make a couple of pair of earrings from those teardrops.

We're All Ears July Challenge

Welcome to We're All Ears July Challenge Blog Hop. Sponsored by the Earrings Everyday blog.   This Month we were given  Primitive Folk Art quilts like this one made by women in India as our inspiration.    
From my stash I chose a pair of Copper sticks enameled in Red, Blue, with Marigold accents.These sticks were hand made by Cathleen Zaring .  I attached these sticks with Vintage Brass non tarnished copper wire to Czech glass flowers in Curry and Bordeaux coloring.  (Hope I spelled that right) very colorful with an explosion of colors like the Quilt.

Thanks for joining me and hop over to the
