Evening Elegance Blog Hop hosted by Lisa Lodge


A few months ago Lisa Lodge of Grateful Artist blog put out the call for those that would be interested in participating in the Evening Elegance Blog Hop in January. Lisa has several kits for sale, so I signed up, because for those that know me, know that Romantic Elegance is my style, so how could I pass this challenge up.

When I got the package in the mail I looked at all the pretties that were in the kit and knew just what I was going to make, so I got started, but what I did not do was take a picture of the items in the kit before I got started making my piece.

Here is what I made.

I did a double needle right angle weave stitch with size 6 mm (from my stash) and size 8 mm (in the kit) glass pearls as the base of my necklace and used the 4 mm purple AB bicones (in the kit) for the center embellishment. Then I added drops along the side of the necklace using size 4 mm glass pearls (from my stash) more of the 4 mm purple AB bicones and tear drop glass pearls (in the kit). The center embellishment drops are done with 4 mm glass pearls, 4 mm purple AB bicones, 4 x 8 mm purple AB rondells (in the kit) and light purple glass drops (in the kit). The seed beads used are size 11 antique gold.
The earrings are made using the Hubble Stitch with cream size 15 seed beads, size 11 antique gold seed beads, and size 10 purple seed beads with light amber glass drops (in the kit).

I hope you like what I have done and thank you for stopping by for a visit. Please leave a comment, because I love hearing what you have to say.

Thank you to Lisa for organizing and hosting this blog hop.

Now please go by and visit the other participants in this blog hop to see what beautiful creations they made using their Evening Elegance kits.
