Winter Blues Blue Goldstone Blog Hop

Liz E. from is hosting this wonderful blog hop.
Liz sent us Blue Goldstone beads for this hop and the beads  you see above are the ones I received. They are absolutely beautiful.
Thank you Liz for your generosity.
Liz and I, we were partners a few years ago on a bead soup blog hop.
We have been blog friends ever since.
Liz always lets me know about other blog hops. I really appreciate your friendship Liz.
Please visit  to see what the artists created.

With my beads I made a necklace, a bracelet an a pair of earrings.
I bought some 6mm blue golstone beads  for the necklace.

I also added some bead caps with Swarovski crystals.

The bracelet I used a Chinese crystal in between the little donuts and a spacer in between the beads.

This set looks absolutely stunning, I really love it. So much bling, but hey, what girl doesn't like bling?

Thank you again Liz for hosting this blog hop and please visit
to see what the other artists created.

Zoisite Necklace

I bought this pendant long time ago, then I was at a bead store and I came across these beads, I knew it was a perfect match for my pendant.
A geology professor told me that the stones in my necklace had rubies in them. So I learned something new.
I have one more piece of zoisite, that I probably will make a bead embroidery pendant.

Bead Embroidery VI

This a sunset over the ocean, this pendant is going to be a birthday gift.
I went to a fabric outlet and found faux letter very inexpensive, I could not resist, and it is just perfect for the backing. I will have to take pictures next time of the back.

Bead Embroidery Pendant V

On this pendant I used pink Jade cabochon, cupchain, 3mm crystal beads, 11/0 seed beads and a pearl.
I have a big collection of bead embroidery. I am still making more.
I love how fast I can create a pendant.
I have a lot of cabochons that I keep buying, but I had no clue what to make with them.
Now finally I am using my cabs.

Dewdrops Pendant

This beautiful pendant is a pattern from Feb/March 2014 issue of Beadwork Magazine.
I absolutely love this pendant.
After I was done making it, I realized that I made a mistake on placing the clear teardrops, they should be facing the other way, oh well,  I liked it, so I didn't take apart.
This is a Leslee Frumin's pattern.
This pattern calls for 15/0 seed, 11/0 seed, 3mm crystals, 6mm pearls, crystal teardrop 11x8mm, 3mm crystal bicones, 4mm crystal bicones and crystal teardrop 6x9mm.
The pattern also has a pearl necklace, but I like to use different chains.
I have bought more beads to make another color pendant.
