I am joining Lisa at Pine Ridge Treasures again for the Checkerboard Blog Hop. I really love Lisa's hops. She sends us a great selection of beads and I love a challenge. I did take a picture of the beads I received in the kit before I started, here is what I received.
I just love the flowers. Red is not one of my favorite colors, so this was a true challenge for me. I ended up with two necklaces, I used up almost all of the beads.
I had some pretty white crystals, and a black and white cameo focal, so I put this together.
Now I needed to use those red beads. And I wanted to put the flowers with them somehow. This is what I came up with:
Here are both of them together:
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like what I did, please stop by the other participants to see what they created with their beads!
