I call this necklace Daffodils because it reminds me of the first flowers we see when Spring finally arrives. I used the beautiful Chinese Crystal Axe in Sunglow & a beautiful green Rondelle. I added a few vintage jade beads for accent.I call this necklace Daffodils because it reminds me of the first flowers we see when Spring finally arrives.

These earrings are so much fun. I added the half bottle lip Cultured Sea Glass and Cultured Sea Glass spacers to make these funky Spring dangles.

ZNETSHOWS 7000 Bracelets For Hope

IMG_0070 IMG_0072 IMG_0074 IMG_0076 IMG_0078 IMG_0080I was once again allowed to participate in another wonderful ZNETSHOWS challenge. I was challenged to make blue bracelets for HOPE. 7000 Bracelets of Hope is an initiative from the Global Genes RARE project, which is an advocacy organization for individuals with rare and genetic diseases. Their symbol is a denim ribbon, a play on genes=jeans. You can find more about the Global Genes project on their website (https://globalgenes.org/). This organization started the 7000 Bracelets of Hope initiative to provide blue-themed bracelets to families fighting rare and genetic diseases. I hope the folks getting these will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

ZnetShows, Inc. cultured sea glass conch shell beads.

When I found out about the new, beautiful cultured sea glass conch shell beads from ZnetShows, Inc. I knew I had to get my hands on them. Imagine my delight when my package arrived with so many beautiful colours. 

I wanted to make something different. A necklace  I could wear to a Pow Wow or to the television station. I decided to use a fluke made from bison bone as my focal. I added date seeds and round  bison bone beads. A few hair pipe beads and Greek leather. Image

Next, I needed earrings to complete my set. I added date seeds with bison bone disks and some Greek leather. Thank you ZnetShows, Inc. for letting play and create. I had a blast !!IMG_8772
