I am SO excited to participate in this blog hop. I have been motivated to work with different materials, start a new blog and finish some projects that have been on my bead table for way too long. Once I got started I couldn't stop. In the bracelet I used some of all the beads, the toggle and chord (I was unable to get the leaves) I added the turquoise ceramic beads because I had just purchased them and was dying to use them and they go really well with the brown and olive. I have been doing a lot of crochet bead jewelry lately so when I was thinking about a way to use the smaller beads that wouldn't fit on the chord I decided the figure out a way to crochet with the beads around the chord and it worked really well.
Then I decided I needed to make a coordinating necklace and use one of the little owl pendants I have been making. I used some of all the beads, seed beads and a vintage shoe button for the clasp.
I really loved the little drop beads and how well the went with so many different colors so I used them in this little crochet mushroom necklace.
and to finish this turquoise and freshwater pearl necklace with a chandelier drop pendant that I added a Fleur d lis and some french script.
A special thank you to Loreli for creating this blog hop. I have had a beady jump start and Fun, fun, fun!
