Evening Elegance Blog Hop - Jan 30 2016

Today is the reveal for Evening Elegance Blog Hop sponsored by Lisa Lodge of Grateful Artist

Below is the beads I received from Lisa. Aren't they pretty!!!

When I received them, I thought oh there won't be any problem coming up with a necklace set. BUT with the holidays, my daughter's wedding, then tax season, I just couldn't get the idea I had in my head to come together. So instead of just throwing together something, I am waiting on the necklace and will show it at a later date. Though here is a picture of what I had started...doesn't look like much, but there is a design hidden in there.

I did however, make a set of earrings. I really like how they turned out, may just keep them for myself! I am debating on whether to add a yellow dangle from the middle line of beads or not...but what ever, I really like them.

There is a set of dangles that Lisa sent, and I have a plan for those at a later date.  I love how delicate they are.

For more great ideas hop over to Lisa's at Grateful Artist for more blogs to check out.
Hopefully now that most of my stress is gone, I will have more time to create!!! I do have some more things to blog. I made my daughters wedding set and a friends wedding set that I will get on line very soon!
Til next time,

Keep on Beading


  1. I would keep those earrings for myself too. They are beautiful. You are right to not force a necklace design to happen.It will come out better when the time is right.

  2. Beautiful earrings! They have so much elegance - and flare! I would love to be wearing these beauties

  3. I have had a very hard time creating anything since Christmas too. I am hoping that this will kick start the year now that I was able to come up with something I love. I love those earrings, I like the idea of the yellow bead too.

  4. Those earrings are beauties! I bet that the dangles make music when you wear them.

  5. Love the earrings, Veralynne. I think they look great all blue, but yellow centers would also look good. I agree about not forcing the necklace design. Let the beads speak to you in there own time. Thanks for being in the hop!
