Blogger and Non-Blogger Sea Garden Reveal

This months Blogger Non Blogger challenge is a Sea Garden and the Hostess is Esterina Mestoko Jagiella 
and this is the inspiration Photo. So I found the gorgeous shell focal that represented the Sea 
Love this Focal with the calm blues , teal and yellow from the sea. I used some 18 gauge wire for my bail and a few Neck chain links to repeat the wavy theme. 14 gauge for my clasp.

Then I needed to represent that coral with its deep red and some teal . The colors are so pretty together.
Necklace done I created a pair of Mismatched earrings.  I love earrings that are not matchy matchy but can be worn together in a set.

I hope you enjoyed stopping by

Thank you for coming to see my Art piece see you soon.

LAMPWORK AND CLAY Blog Hop 2013 -The Reveal

Welcome to my blog and the Lamp work and Clay Blog Hop 2013.  Lisa lodge, A grateful Artist  Pulled this event together.  We were given a choice of Lamp work or Clay as our Venue and I chose Lamp Work.  These are the 8 Lamp work beads Lisa sent to me.
I took the two smallest beads and created a pair of earrings using Glass pearls, green seed beads, and gold seed beads:

The other beads were used as a focal point in this Pearl Necklace I created.

So Sorry I was late for our date. I hope you take time to visit everybody and enjoy the Hop.
