New Blog Hop

I am participating in a new Blog Hop sponsored by Pine Ridge Treasures.  This one is a little different than the Bead Soup Blog Hop because you actually buy a kit and get sent a Bead Soup that you create a wearable art piece.  This one is called the "The Ocean Blog Hop". So I requested my kit and it arrived and I thought Oh No, not orange....This is probably my least favorite color, ha ha!  However the focal is just great and the beads are unbelievable!  Actually the color is growing on me.  I guess I just never thought that orange goes with the ocean and I was waiting for my wonderful blues and greens to show up, but duh coral....  This is why I love doing these blog hops because you get out of your comfort zone and restart your creativity in a totally new way.  So here is my "Soup".
 So here it is and as you can see there is some beautiful pieces of faux beach glass, these wonderful white barrel beads that have some unusual texture to them, kind of a sandy feel to them some great clear clear crystal daggers, some creamy flat beads and an incredible array of other items.

This focal isn't it just adorable?  The fish has some gorgeous colors of Turquoise and pink and golden  brownish tones.
I will be posting some of my progress as I work through a design for the finished piece.  My reveal date is May 31st so don't miss it.
