My Favorite Things Blog Hop

Today I am joining up with Lisa from Pine Ridge Treasures for her My Favorite Things blog hop.  She sent us a wonderful collection of beads, all of her favorites, and I can't wait to see what everyone made.  

I of course forgot to take a picture of everything before I started.  I received a lovely mix of rose quartz, crystals and pearls.  I also received these beautiful beads, but I have no idea what they are. 

 They are pink and grey and just sparkle.  The pictures don't do them justice. I have 2 of them left, I think they want to be a bracelet.

I hurt my neck and shoulder 2 weeks ago and it's been very hard to sit and make any jewelry.  I did manage to finish one piece, but I still have so many ideas floating around in my head for the rest of the kit. I can't wait until it is better and I can make some more pieces.

Here is the necklace I made.  I wrapped the focal with black steel wire.  I was going to do a tassel at the bottom, but I really think I like it the way it is.

And another view

Thanks for joining me, please take a look at the other participant's blogs to see what they created with their kits!
