Today's post is for the Color Blog Hop. I signed up again to participate in a challenge hosted by Lisa Lodge of http://gratefulartist.blogspot.com/2017/01/pine-ridge-treasures-color-blog-hop.html  .The lower picture above is the kit that I received from Lisa. Blue is my favorite color so I was pleased. The upper picture is the necklace that I created from this kit. The luscious large blue pearls became the straps with the aid of a few of the silver ovals and matte white glass rounds as accents.The two holey silver discs were the start of my pendant. I stitched them to blue ultra-suede using bead embroidery. The base row was made with the dark blue rice shaped pearls. A row inside of that made using size 8 beads forms the bezel to hold the silver components in. There is a trim row outside of that that uses blue seed beads capped with white points. Dark blue bugles form the base of the fringe. The fringe end sequence is a pair of  4mm lapis colored pearls flanking  a silver corrugated spacer bead and having a silver faceted rondelle below. I used a few of the lapis pearls and two of the white glass rounds as accents on the silver holey discs.  The bail was created with a modified herringbone stitch from the same  blueberry luster colored delica bead the I used in the outside row of the pendant trim. I am proud of the design that I created and I hope you like it too.  Thank you Lisa for another fun challenge.
