A Time to Stitch 4 Blog Hop

Therese Frank  from : http://theresestreasures59.blogspot.com and Christine Altmiller from : http://onekisscreations.blogspot.com  are co-hosting this blog hop. I would like to thank both ladies for hosting this hop.
I had so much fun.
Please check their websites to see what the other participants have created.
For this hop, we had make one piece with the net stitch.
I used gold seed beads and gold crystals, the bracelet was so shiny that the picture did not turned out very good.

Then you had to make a second piece using one of these stitches : Spiral Rope, Chevron Stitch or Chenille.
I choose Spiral Stitch.
The four color bracelet is using Russian Spiral and the green bracelet is using Dutch Spiral.
Wow, that was a lot of fun.
Thank you again for the opportunity to participate on your hop.

This Hop is being hosted by Lisa Lodge from: http://gratefulartist.blogspot.com/
Thank you Lisa for allowing me to participate in this hop.

For this hop we had to create jewelry with a "Forest" theme or "Forest at Night" or "Organic" theme.
I used some freshwater pearls and some gemstone chips.

Above are the beads I receive from Lisa.

Below are the two necklaces I made using the beads I received:
  For this necklace I used the Tiger Eyes Cubes, and the some seed beads, I also used freshwater pearls,  tiger eye chips and a tiger eye pendant that I have for over 30 years.

And for this necklace I used the Lampwork beads, the Jasper rounds, the Czech Glass,  the remaining seed beads and Critine chips from my stock.
