Today is the reveal for Lisa Lodge's Pine Ridge Treasures' Checkerboard Blog Hop reveal. Lisa prepared kits for us to purchase that fit the theme.
She is always generous with the beads that she includes in her kits. Here is a picture of the beads that I received:
There were black crystal rondells, black oval, white bowtie-shaped, and red disk matte cultured sea glass, along with some red crystal briolettes.
I was able to to create several different necklaces and earrings.
First up is a pair of earrings using a couple of the crystal briolettes. I made hoop earrings using some rose spacers.
Here is the start of an idea I had for one of the necklaces that I made using the crystal rondells and briolettes. I used crystal facted seed beads as spacers.
My camera is not co-operating with me this morning. I do not have access to the pictures of the rest of the completed projects. Hopefully this afternoon my computer and my camera will start talking to each other. So look for another post from me then.
Be sure to stop by and see what the other participants have made.Your hostess: Lisa Lodge, A Grateful Artist
