Pine Ride Treasures: Color Blog Hop!

A work in Progress~~~

I'm in a bit of a creative slump. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's the fact that I was not able to participate in many craft shows last season. Maybe it's the general feeling of malaise many of us have felt since November 9th. 

I have been working on ideas for these beads, sent by Lisa Lodge as part of one of her challenges, the Color Blog Hop.

 Lisa's challenges work like this: You respond to her by purchasing one of a number of  packages of beads. I chose the "Red and White" selection. 

What I received, of course, was much more than that! The warm champagne colored beads and brass findings are perfect with the red and white theme.  

So here is what I have so far. I got slowed down by several things happening in my life, so nothing is actually complete....please forgive me!

So the top picture is obviously a necklace in progress, and the bottom picture is um, some mismatched dangles that I didn't finish because my pliers hand is still in recuperation mode (carpal tunnel release surgery, all good.) I actually thought they matched until I looked at the pictures. Oh well, they would have had to be re-done anyway. And that bit of wire with beads on it.... dunno, got nothing. Just playing with beads!

Let's see what the others have done!
