Pine Ridge Treasures - Pearls, Fabulous Pearls

Elegance in Lilac and Gray

Blog Hops are not as numerous as they used to be among jewelry artists, but I still love them.We all get so busy, but sometimes we need to stop and concentrate on one item, or group of items. My latest Blog Hop is again sponsored by Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures. And it's all about pearls. I chose a set featuring the color lilac. 

That's not even all of them... it's what is left over after I made my jewelry! I know. That's a lot of leftovers! 
 And here, without further ado, are my designs. 
Long necklace, pearls and crystals.

Pretty clasp on the necklace.

My favorites, bracelet and earrings.
I used a few things from my stash on these, but they were mainly spacers and seed beads used as spacers, and I think they worked really well. Oh, and the little pewter shells. Pearls and shells, right? Okay, they are not oyster shells, but they are super sweet, don't you think? And I alternated backs and fronts of the shells, so no matter how you put on the bracelet, it will always be "right." The earrings are simple, but echo both of the other pieces nicely.
