Lorelei and Shannon's Lima Beads Challenge AND Blog Hop

That is a pic of the wonderful kit that Lorelei and Shannon picked out at Lima Beads.  I was very inspired by the green tile beads and the lovely glass flower beads and immediately began to make a seed bead braelet. 


 






 As you can see I have added quite a few beads from my own stash.  The turquoise disk bead is one of my own ceramic beads.  I love the way this color combo make it almost glow.  Thanks so much Lorelei and   Shannon for doing this for us. You can see the other participants' work here.


I have begun and have almost finished a necklace with some of the other beads in the kit.  I will post it later in the week when it if finished.
