I got a beautiful set of beads from Pine Ridge Treasures (http://pineridgetreasures.blogspot.com/) and will participate in their blog hop. The hop is called Summer Color Surprise, since the colors were a surprise. The only “rules” are to tell my inspiration for the jewelry I will create and to have at least 50% of the beads in the completed pieces be from the kit. I received a kit filled with a lovely variety of beads in copper and brown. I plan to torch some beads to match.
