Okay. Now I was 2 days late with the last hop but this one takes the cake. The hop was actually December 18th and I actually finished making the jewelry a few days post hop but just unable to get to the computer for several days. And since these beads were in colors that I naturally gravitate towards, I was determined to blog about it.
The info about the hop is from Heather Powers, of Humblebeads, and Lorelei Eurto. You have to check out what they made - truly beautiful pieces, I especially like their necklaces.
I took even more of a twist on the initial "rules" to use the specific beads plus an artist's bead or beads and instead supported another artist by using their tutorial.
I made several bracelets using an Infinity leather link with a tutorial by Tracy Statler. And on one of the bracelets, included a bead by (I think!) Jera Luna Designs. Some of the bracelets are stretchy and some are knotted with button closure. And one pair of earrings. Really love the drop beads - the color and shininess are brilliant!
