One of my goals this year is to try to participate in more blog hops. Last year, I really slacked off and I so enjoy designing up the jewelry around a theme and then sitting down with a cup of tea to see what everyone else has come up with. So I was very happy to learn that Lisa of Pine Ridge Treasures is planning on hosting a few this year.
Now par for the course, I can't manage to find my before pics of the wonderful kit that I recieved. I can tell you that it was filled with glass pearls from ZNetShows (and they have wonderful pearls which I highly recommend), a beautiful focal from Joan Miller and some metal findings.
I knotted up a necklace using the Ultra Pearls in colors that highlighted the gorgeous ceramic focal. Finishing it off is a golden pewter toggle clasp and a little key hearkening to the focal.
Now comes the funnest part of a blog hop, checking out all the beautiful eye candy!
