Anchors Aweigh!! Design Challenge

 Rita of Toltec Jewels invited me to participate in Anchors Aweigh!! Design Challenge Featuring  Suburban Girl Studio 


We received two very cute porcelain anchors for free to use in our designs. Each artist received either green or blue. 17 of us will be participating and the reveal will be on September 2nd so make sure you check back to see what I did.

I received green ones although they look blue :).

 I think this will be a fun one!

Pine Ridge Studio Summer Carnival Blog Hop

Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures is holding a fun Summer Carnival Blog Hop.  The reveal will take place on August 2 which is coming up really quickly.  I have been very busy trying to get our house ready to put up for sale so I haven't had much time to be creative.  I had such a hard time coming up with a jewelry design even though I love, love, love the colors in the beads that Lisa sent me.  I think I might be having trouble because of the sparkly glass beads.  Kinda funny when I make sparkly dichroic glass pieces all the time.  When you join the hop you get a whole bunch of beads and Lisa lets you know the guidelines which are to use as many beads as you can from the kit, use what you have in your stash and don't buy any beads etc.  The hop is supposed to be challenging.  Anyway here are the beads!

A little blurry because I took them with my phone, but the sparkly beads are just a beautiful light golden color and I absolutely love the blue sea glass.  Well stay tuned for the hop and reveal which is August 2nd and see what I came up with.
So fun!
