Sharyl's Mini Blog Hop


I was invited to do a mini blog hop by my friend Sharyl so why not! You never know what you might discover! New friend or blog, a new idea... it's all worth it!
Sharyl sent me the beads I used in these creation...

I added the chain, toggle, ear wires and hand forged head pins. I wanted to do something simple and easy to wear. I think this is a fun simple set.

Left a before pic, I needed to add patina to the metal, love my antiqued copper ;) what can I say! I am a vintage girl at heart...


 All lovely Czech glass beads, thanks Sharyl!

Hi Marie,
I love your beautiful carefree necklace and earrings. I liked them with the bright copper, but love the oxidized copper.

A lovely set. I like how you 'antiqued' the copper chain.

Shirley said...

I like the chain both ways as well. It's so cool to see what other people do with the same items. I love that necklace!!!

Kashmira said...

Wow! What a difference the patina made. Pretty!

I like a vintage copper also and it makes a huge difference in the necklace. I love how you used all the beds as little dangles. It's just lovely and I bet it is great fun to wear.

That patina made all the difference! Just lovely. Especially love the earrings - just my style!

Sharyl said...

Marie--I always love your style! My reaction is no different here! Love how you took a few simple beads and turned them into wonderful creations! They are pieces I would love to wear anytime--as in your previous post about earrings--Perfect for Everyday!

I'm glad you left us before and after shots. I love the oxidized copper, but I may be one of the few still absolutely in love with bright copper too! So I loved the jewelry BOTH ways! It was like getting to see 2 totally different creations!

Thank you so much for participating in our mini-hop! (I should have named it that from the start since the # of participants had to be so limited!) Very best wishes!
