Gemstone and Metal Blog Hop

I signed up to do the Gemstone and Metal blog hop hosted by Lisa at Pine Ridge Treasures.   We each purchased a kit from her for the hop.  Mine had really some pretty sunflower metal beads, a clasp, and 4 different shapes of beautiful black lined jasper.  Of course, I forgot to take a picture of the beads before I started.  I went through a few false starts and finally decided to do a long necklace.  

I added some flower beads and light pink crystals from my stash.  The leaf clasp and the oval sunflower beads are also from the kit. I also did a bracelet with some blue crystals from my stash, I like the way they contrast with the jasper. 

Here is a picture of the two together.
