The Reveal - Ocean Blue Bead Blog Hop

Welcome to my first bead blog hop. Please enjoy my creations.

This is my Ocean Blue Kimohimo bracelet. I did this with the pearls, crystals and small blue beads. Beads where on 4 strands and 4 strands were plain. This reminds me of walking on the beach sand and finding all the interesting things you would fine. I have added one small silver heart to this in memory of my friend/ sister who recently passed away. She's as my beading buddy who I will miss dearly.


This is my earring collection from some of the beads from this group. I did do some wire wrapping on top of the beads. I just like them because they dangle and move freely.
This bottom picture is my last and it is a necklace with a little twist. I added colored lucite flowers for some extra color and pop. There you have it I hope you enjoy. Can't wait to see everyone's - have a great summer!

  8. It's wonderful to see that you dedicated the bracelet to a passed love one. I've made prayer pieces. They seem to be the hardest ones to make, but are cherished even more.

  11. What great pieces. I especially love the first bracelet with the little heart dedicated to your sister. So sorry for your loss. I love the Kumihimo. I've never been able to figure out how to add beads to my kumihimo like that. Love all the texture in it.
