My Bead Table Blog Hop - Pine Ridge Treasures

I was lucky enough to have met Lisa about a year ago on a bead swap hosted by Lori Anderson. I befriended her and was lucky enough to have been one of the girls in her "Bead Table Blog Hop". I do not believe I took before photos, of just the beads.

Handmade jump rings and clasps.

 I slowely made items over the past few months. Between teenage drama, baby needs and a husband.. Not to mention general life getting in the way. I mostly created earrings. They are easy to whip up and can be done standing at the counter cooking meals.

Galvanized steel frame  with gold craftwire.

I am trying to make as much as possiable. But my muse is down in the depression dumps. Things will turn around and once they do, I will have more to post. Lisa sent me a beautiful mix of earthy tones, and the ceramic-stone type beads. They are a beautiful rich brown. I hope you have enjoyed my few designs.

Handemade paddle headpins and earwires.

Thank you Lisa for hosting the blog hop. I really enjoyed it!!
