Color Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!!  Today I am joining Lisa at Pine Ridge Treasures for the Color Blog Hop.  We all purchased a kit from Lisa and were able to choose a color for the kit.  Of course, I chose blue.  I even remembered to take a before picture:

All that beautiful blue - thank you Lisa, these beads are gorgeous and a great mix!

The first thing I did was decide that I was going to learn how to wire wrap those briolettes.  I have tried several times before and wasn't successful.   So I kept trying, and then it clicked, so I made some earrings.  I still need some more practice since they are a little wonky, but I am happy to wear them.  

Then I went looking for beads to go with that pretty aquamarine.  I found a focal, some cord, and a few other beads.  And I had this design screaming in my head to get out.  So I started.  

And then I had to work 60 hours this week.  Unfortunately, that is all I've been able to get done.  I will post it when I finish in Lisa's Facebook group and here on the blog.  I have plans for the rest of the beads too, more ideas swirling around in my head that I can't wait to get to.  Please take a look at what the other participants did with their kits;
