Summer Waters Blog Hop

Today I am doing the Summer Waters blog hop with Lisa from Pine Ridge Treasures.  

A lot of times, I get the kits from Lisa and wonder if she has a little camera in my bead room.  She always sends me beads that match perfectly with a focal I've been saving.  The owl is a Marti Conrad piece that I was saving , the rest are the beads Lisa sent:

I ended up with 2 necklaces, a bracelet and 3 pairs of earrings.  Be warned this post is picture heavy.

Here is the necklace that I did with Marti's owl.  I added moonstone nuggets from my stash, the rest of the beads were from the kit.

A close up of the focal, isn't he adorable?  I just love Marti's work:

I had little owl charms that I did earrings with.  I need to redo the wire, I was messing around to see if I could come up with something different, and I like these.

Here is the other necklace, I love the blues in this one - they worked so well with the pearls.

Here is a close up of the back:

I liked this combo so much, I did a bracelet too:

Another view:

And some earrings:

And finally the last pair of earrings.  I am so bummed, one of them broke while we were taking pictures.  I thought I'd include them anyway, hopefully I can find another little fishy.
