Pine Ridge Jasper Blog Hop - 04-04-2015

Once again Lisa has challenged up to step out of our box and create.  I tried stepping out of my box but with being a tax preparer I have been so busy I wasn't able to step out much...but here goes


Once again I forgot to take beginning pictures of the great beads Lisa sent. I really need to get in the habit of taking them..but for my first piece the beads just seem to scream bracelet so that is what I made with matching earrings. Far be it for me to argue with the bead! I do think the lobster claw is to big...so I am going to have to find another one a bit smaller.


























This second one is a bracelet too, but my daughter came up with this design. Again, I am going to have to get a smaller lobster claw.. I think I may try to move the beads closer together too.



































And last, a necklace. I really like this one as it is fairly simple and almost monochromatic. I also didn't realize til it was to late the clasp was photographed upside down...lol.



























So there you have it...my offerings for this wonderful Jasper Blog Hop.

Our next challenge is on April 25 called Hurray For Spring. I can't wait. so come on back on the 25th for more goodies.

  1. Chunky, funky and oh so fun. Hit a homerun on these!!! I am not even a tax preparer and I cringed when you mentioned that - spent countless hours figuring two Fed and two State returns!!!

    1. Thank you. I really enjoyed the funky chunky look this time. Good times with taxes...with the laws changing every year it is quite the battle, but I enjoy it.

  3. I absolutely adore your pieces...Great job. I wouldn't change the clasps on the bracelets if they were mine because the stones are heavy and chunky and I think that a smaller clasp might look unbalanced, but that is just my thoughts....I would love to sport both the beauties on my wrists...I love the look with the chain and stones together. The way the chain is done at the ends to extend the length also is PERFECT and I think I will be using this technique in future pieces of my own. The necklace is gorgeous also...I ALWAYS ENJOY seeing your work!!! Thanks so much for sharing with us. (mine will post this afternoon-currently headed to an Easter play to see 6 of our Great nieces and nephews perform)...

  5. Just love those bracelets especially the first one. I don't think that I would change the clasps though as I tend to prefer the larger ones and they balance the stones so well.

  6. Hi Veralynne,
    I love your creations. I do agree the lobster claw clasps are beautiful, but a bit to large for your bracelets. I think your necklace is so pretty.

  10. Hi Veralynne! I'm so glad I hopped-over to your blog...and found more pics of your Jasper pieces! The closure to the green multi-strand jasper bracelet is very neat! Still loving that big chunky stone version, too!

  11. Looks like it was a fun challenge. I know what you mean about forgetting to take a picture of the look until it's too late. I get too excited myself sometimes and forget to take that minute to do it. I like both your bracelet designs, especially that second one your daughter came up with. She's got it in her too I think!! Great job (both of you!)!
