Pearls! Pearls! Pearls! Blog Hop Revel-June 29th

Hi All,
Oops!...goofed going to have to start looking at the calendar BEFORE I do anything that has to do with Revels! Thought I was late getting this posted...turns out am a day early.  Sorry about that!!...have had technical difficulties with getting pictures to load...and was concentrating on getting that taken care of and NOT paying any attention to dates...etc...
But did finish two pieces using my very favorite type of beads this month, Pearls! :)
Was tickled pink to learn that a Pearl Blog Hop was being organized by Shel of MiShel Designs...thanks Shel!
Love pearls, so felt this was perfect...I used Bi-WA pearls and CZ Picasso Amethyst 3mm rounds with one necklace and Bi-WA and round pearls with CZ Picasso rounds in pink/gold in the other... are a couple of pictures of the strands of pearls...sorry the pictures aren't very good, will try again in the morning to see if the light is better outside...the pictures just don't do them justice! 


...and here are pictures of the necklaces that I created...:)

...more pictures to follow...don't think I have enough in computer memory to upload my pictures's getting slower and slower, so will have to be changing things as soon as I get a chance to as well!
     Finally figured out how to get the link onto my page...please see below...:)

Ocean Blog Hop hosted by Lisa Lodge of A Grateful Artist-Pine Ridge Treasures-Revel June 14th

Arrgh! Sorry all, that I'm a day late getting this post done....totally spaced on it! :(
But did create two pieces of jewelry for this Hop...have messed up with this from the get my excitement of receiving the two packages of beads, one for the Ocean Blog Hop and the other for the Winter Sparkle Blog Hop, finished BOTH sets way too soon and then took pictures of the wrong one and put them on my that the ones you saw in February were the ones meant for June...and the ones for February were..., well you get the, here they are...
Added a enameled, sparkly leaf to the focal here

the earrings
My second piece, which I actually like better than the first one

completed piece

Did have some trouble with the PC and uploading the pictures...these are not the all of you probably know by now, taking pictures can be the hardest part of jewelery making!
Thank you to all that come by and visit and a big thank you to our hostess, Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures for supplying us with the generous packages of beads, they are the 'sparkly-est' that I've seen by far! :) Ev

Thank you to all the creative, talented people that have left comments about the pieces that I created for the 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Hop! You all were most kind in the lovely comments that I have rec'd...:)
There does seem to be a misconception though...I didn't 'wrap' the cab that makes up the pendant for the one very talented partner, Ghislaine is the one who created the beautiful pendant...:)
