Pine Ridge Treasures Sunny Day Blog Hop

 

One of the things that I really enjoy about blog hops that start out as a kit is that there are times when my muse gets a workout. I have a tendency to avoid  certain beads or colors. Not so easy to do when someone else chooses the beads. 

 

This is one of those kits that forced me to grow. Some gorgeous beads and all the brass findings.  But all that yellow and orange!  I don't use that color.

 

Well maybe if I ease my way into with a pair of earrings that are perfect for the beach.  Light & airy, they make their own music. (Don't you just love how the camera picks up the flaws?)

 

Okay if I am going to go yellow, I am going to go all the way.  Of course, I had to have green also (one of my favorite colors). This necklace is all about the sun & all the plants who worship him.  I knotted it all up with some Chinese cord and a brass clasp. 

Now since this is a hop, be sure to check out what these other wonderful designers have done.

  7. Shaiha - I think you did a great job with a color that is not your favorite. The yellow and green necklace looks great - like a refreshing lemon lime beverage. Thanks for being in the hop!
