Wish it were summer...reveal time!

I'm late, late, late! It has been a very hectic week concluded with a minor medical emergency for my daughter last night so I wasn't able to get my post written and scheduled...but hey! it's an exciting Saturday morning writing on the fly!


Let's start with a picture of what I got...so many delicious summer beads! I'll be honest here, I've only finished a couple of pieces because everything is just crazy these days. I am also using several of these beads for a swag bag promotion I'm doing so several of the pieces I've made are same/similar because they are for the promotion.

A co-worker saw the beautiful health pendant in a preview photo I shared and asked me to make a necklace for one of her friends who is ill. I used the pendant and small white beads from the kit, then added some agates in soft green and lilac with brass chain. They style is long and slips easily over the head so no clasps to struggle with...I really hope it brighten her friends day to receive it. I know she was delighted with the design! 

An upclose shot of the pendant so you can really see the etched "Health" on it. 

 and an upclose of the chain and agate bead links...oops! forgot to mention I used a few brass spacers from the kit too! 

Apologies again, I don't have a picture of this design using the actual beads from the kit yet...still working on all those promo necklaces! This is the design I am doing for the swag bags. I will be using several of the seaglass pieces from this kits as well as other kits of received from Lisa. I love this simple yet stylish design. The promo necklaces will be on a 24" chain but this style is also available here with your choice of 24" or 36" chain and your choice of several bead drop styles. 

Well that's it for me off to work on my ever growing "To Do" list. Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you will take a few minutes to visit these other talented ladies to see what they created! ~Kari
