This blog is hosted by Michelle from :
A very special thank you to Michelle for hosting this blog hop.
Please visit her blog and you will be able to see all the treasures from the the participants.

The necklace above is made with freshwater pearls and is a russian spiral stitch.
All my freshwater pearls are from JJ beads in Huntington Beach, California.
Jenny Van,  the store owner is a contributor to Bead and Button magazine and her website is :

This bracelet is a kit I purchased at JJ beads.
Is Freshwater pearls and seed beads.

This bracelet is called Lilac Lace and the designer is Yasmin Sarfati, this pattern is from the Beadwork Magazine Feb/March 2013.
I used cream color glass pearls(Hobby Lobby), brown crystals from JJ Beads and gold seed beads.

This necklace is made with crystals and freshwater pearls and the pendant is a pattern from Jenny Van, called Crystal Passion.

This last necklace is made of freshwater pearls and they are drilled on the top so when strung they are alternate, one on one side, the next on the other side. Those are also from JJ beads.
This was a lot of fun, thank you again Michelle, and don't forget to visit the Hop here:


  1. Your bead stitching is amazing and I love how the pearls look mixed in with the crystals. I love the top drilled pearl necklace too. It is amazing the different looks that can be achieved just by using pearls that are drilled in different ways! Beautiful.

  2. Beautiful pieces! Your bead work is superb! I love all of them, so I will not pick a favorite.

  3. Hi Jasvanti,
    What a treasure trove of beautiful work! I love the earthy tones, it seems like you are already thinking of fall. While each piece is marvelous I think that last one really captures my imagination. Great job :-)

  4. I just don't know where to start - your designs are ALL so amazing! The first necklace just took my breath away - so feminine and perfect! Lovely colors. The second bracelet is great - especially the colors again, looks like the AZ desert where I live. And the Lilac Lace pattern bracelet is a stunner - love the width - bold, yet delicate. The Crystal Passion necklace is perfect. It's so versatile and could be worn everyday and the last necklace is the same - love that one! I especially like how you mixed the colors in that one - I have such a hard time doing that and you have done an amazing job. Thanks so much for participating in the hop, I hope you had fun creating with all your gorgeous pearls!

  11. What beautiful work you have done! My absolute favorite is the very last one! It's so delicate looking, I can't even tell how it is held together! I also love the colors of the pearls and beads in the 2nd piece--it's just a lovely combination!

  12. So pretty!!!! The first one looks so feminine. And taking the pictures on shells, it really made each piece stand out! It is hard to pick just one...they are fabulous! Great job. Thanks for Sharing!
