Holiday Bling 2 Blog Hop


I am once again participating in the Holiday Bling Blog Hop hosted by Shelley Graham Turner and Marlene Cupo

This time I was paired with the extremely talented Debbie Rasmussen.  She makes stunning bead woven items so I knew that I would receive something really great from her.  We exchanged some emails and got to know each other a bit.  I learned that she really likes copper and warm tones.  I also do some bead weaving so I did not want to send her something that I felt she could make herself.  So I went about creating a necklace, bracelet, and earring set using copper.  I made an asymmetrical necklace using some of my enamel beads and copper chain.  I made a bracelet with lots of dangles (one of my favorite styles) also used some of my enamel beads and them some earrings to match.  The necklace clasp is made with a S hook and is adjustable.
I really hope she likes these.  I had fun making them.

Here is the amazing bracelet and earrings that Debbie sent me.  I love them!
They are a beautiful silver/gray color.  The color in my picture is off, sorry.  They came packaged in this cute little purse wrapping.
I will be wearing the bracelet and earrings Debbie made for me on my cruise this week.  If you are reading this on the 15th I will be sailing the seas!  I will visit all the participants when I return.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all.  I wish each and every one of you and wonderful and prosperous New Year!
Please visit all the other participants in this blog hop and see what wonderful Holiday Bling they created!
