It has been a long while since I have visited with you my friends. For this, I apologize. I promise not to be such a stranger from now on. My "come-back" blog is very special. It is a bead challenge from Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures.
Please read on to see what I decided on.
The very first thing I HAD to make were these GEOMETRIC GLASS EARRINGS:
At this point I need to add a disclaimer....My camera is new and I am trying to figure it out. The pale glass is a lemon yellow. I hope that by the time I have these list in my shop I will have the color right. The circles are periwinkle. The thread used is olive drab (it really is the name) waxed Irish linen. I think I say this every blog hop...but I may just keep these.
Naturally, When the earrings were done, the matching necklace was screaming to be made!
I believe the middle pendant shows the detail of the etching in the cultured sea glass. The word LOVE is etched in bold capital letters.
On one side of the necklace you have anchors in the sand; the other sea turtles swimming with the current. I have aptly (I think, anyway) I LOVE THE BEACH.
For me, one of the best parts of summer is waking up to the birds singing! I was so thrilled that Lisa included these sweet song birds in the kits.
These SONG BIRD EARRINGS will be in my shop when I re-open (as well as everything you see on this page).
This piece is presented last because it represents the LAST DAYS of SUMMER, From the chainmaille rosettes to the teardrop (tears of sadness) crackle glass pendant.
Don't be too sad there are many more SUNNY DAYS at the following blogs. Check out what these lovely ladies did with their kits:
