Pine Ridge Ceramic Blog Hop

Today is the reveal for the Pine Ridge Ceramic Blog hop, sponsored by Lisa Lodge.  When I saw this picture with all the bight spring colors, I was thrilled to welcome spring at last. You all know how I love my color.So I just had to be part of this hop. Since everything is randomly picked I had no cause to worry the picture was full of color.  However, when I received my kit it was brown. Don't get me wrong gorgeous brown Jasper, a Pretty Ceramic with a lacey pattern from grubbi, rondells, clasp, a strand of white glass pearls but everything else brown.  This is what I received in my kit

Always up for a challenge, first a pair of Jasper wire wrapped teardrop earrings

Earrings with brass elements:

  1. You never cease to amaze me, Gloria!!! Lovely, lovely!!

  2. Maybe brown, but you made it shine!

  3. Gloria - you made a lovely set! I especially love the necklace. Picture jasper is one of my favorite stones. Thanks for being in the hop!

  4. You made that brown kit shine Gloria! I love every piece you created! So very lovely.

  5. Your pieces are all beautiful. I love the pendant you made of the Grubbi piece. You always combine brass with other beads so well - those second earrings!

  6. Great designs for spring, or any time. I'm a big fan of both jasper and earrings, so this is right up my alley. Love what you did with the pendant, too.

  7. I like how you used two different chains in the necklace. Nice job! I like this challenge, but I am soooo over full already. Maybe, just maybe I'll join in.

  8. You really made brown work, introducing just a bit of color here and there and made a stylish jewelry set! I couldn't help but notice the wire wrapping over the bead caps in one of the earring pairs - such a great detail!

  9. Your necklace is beautiful. I love the earrings that you made too.

  10. Looks like our spring in Michigan! Not much green or color yet. You really elevated the kit pieces into a beautiful collection of jewelry. I like how you used the filigree to make the focal bead pop.
