Evening Elegance Blog Hop reveal

Today is the day for the reveal of the Evening Elegance Blog Hop sponsored by Lisa Lodge of A Grateful Artist.  I purchased a bead kit from Lisa and I was to use the kit and any additional beads from my stash to make different pieces of jewelry.

Lisa is always very generous with her kits and I was able to make two pieces with earrings with beads left over.  I hope to be making at least two additional necklaces and earrings.

Here is a picture of some of the beads that I received.  For some reason I didn't get a picture of the black beads that I received and those are the ones that I didn't finish making things from.  Will have to include a picture with the new post.

Lots of crystals
I was able to use most of the beads in the above picture.  Starting with the beads at the bottom of the picture, I used pink oval shaped pressed glass beads along with two shades of pink crystals to make a necklace and earrings.

Going with the Evening Elegance theme I went with a shorter necklace than what I usually make.

The next necklace and earrings are from the violet crystals and larger beads of a similar color that were included in the kit.  I added silver bead caps and crystal cut seed beads as spacers.  This necklace is also shorter than what I usually make.

I made two sets of earrings as I couldn't decide which I liked better and I had enough beads to make both.

Hoop earrings
Dangle earrings

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my jewelry.  Please feel free to leave a comment.
