Summer Elements blog hop

Pin It

Welcome to the Summer Elements blog hop hosted by Toltec Jewels of Jewel School Friends.

We were invited to create and share what we love about an element of summer. It could be jewellery, beads, a recipe, a craft, holiday memories, campfire songs -- basically anything that celebrates summer. 

So I had totally forgotten about the blog hop until I received a message about it about a week ago!!  So I had no idea what I was going to share, then I thought about the Natasha beads I had literally made the day before.  I decided they were perfect as they reminded me of summer!!  I made them with a mix of old cane ends that were sitting in my scrap box, smooching them into a cane, twisting, slicing and shaping until the beads below were left!!

The orange and yellow in them made them pop and it's that that shouted summer to me...  So here they are....  I'm still trying to decide whether to list them in my Etsy shop as they are or if I will create a piece or pieces of jewellery from them, so watch this space!!

So now that you have seen my beads don't forget to pop by all the other Summer Elements Blog Hop Participants:
