Sometime last year Lisa Lodge put out the call for those that would be interested in participating in Jasper Intrigue Blog Hop and Challenge. I was intrigued about this challenge since Jasper is one my favorite gemstones so I signed up and paid my fee and a month or so later I got my package of beautiful Jasper of honey and lemon color tones along with some glass pearls, 4 mm bicones, toggle clasps and a few other findings. I forgot to take a picture of my package before I started creating, but I can tell you that Lisa was more then generous with the goodies she sent.
Here is what I created with the yummy Jasper and other tidbits in the package.
First up a necklace and bracelet set.
I wanted to stay true to my bead weaving, but these beads were just not having it no matter what pattern or stitch I used, they just wanted to be in a simple strung necklace and bracelet.
Second a bracelet.
These rice glass pearls did not mind being in a bead weave I used RAW to make this simple bracelet. The bracelet is embellished with 4 mm bicone crystals and Jasper squares. I could not find a button to fit through the circle of beads so I made a toggle from a piece of copper wire.
The third and last a pair of earrings.
In the baggie of finding there were angle wings and with the Jasper a small string of drops perfect to make angel earrings.
Thank you Lisa for hosting this wonderful Blog Hop and Challenge.
Thank you for stopping by now please go by and visit the other blogs in this hop.
