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:
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.
