Gemstone & Metal Blog Hop 2014


I spent countless hours looking at what I received for this GEMSTONE & METAL BLOG HOP.  I scoured Pinterest for inspiration.  At least I had the blog hop as one my excuses for hours and hours of pinning.  A couple of weeks back I was out beading at my favorite local beading shop and pulled out my kit.  In no time,  I was laying out the gemstones and metal on my bead pad.  With just a couple of changes along the way, I was stringing and crimping.
