It's been awhile since I've done a Blog Hop with Pine Ridge Treasures but you know this girl can't pass up anything purple! I knew immediately when I opened the package what I would create. Life is always so hectic these days but I was very excited to get this design finished early...but of course I am writing the post at the last minute which seems to be the my way these days!
I forgot to take a photo of all the beads I received but it was a gorgeous mix of crystals, czech glass, glass pearls, bead caps, spacers and a bit of chain. All the makings for one of my ribbon charm wrap bracelets...could also be worn as a necklace. This is such a versatile design!
It includes a beautiful section of hand dyed ribbon, a section of wire wrapped bead links and a section of chain with 43 bead charms...it wraps around the wrist 4-5 times for a beautiful bracelet or can be worn as a long necklace.
The bracelet is the only piece I got done for the hop...did I mention it's been a hectic summer?!? I've spent quite a bit of time with this sweet girl including planning and celebrating her second birthday! We have also been preparing for her sister to arrive this fall...I am a very excited Nana!
Thank you Lisa for an inspiring, beautiful bead selection! Click on the links below to see what everyone else created. There's sure to be many beautiful pieces to see! ~Kari
