CC7A April Hop

Alicia of All the Pretty Things put together another series of small Hops for the seven of us.  We are basing our work on our own photos.  To kick it all off, Alicia sent us this photo for inspiration:

At the same time this new series of hops were getting underway, Liz of Bead Contagion sent me a few very bright beads to play with ~ oranges, yellows, blues, greens.  Little did I know they would be the primary focus for a few of these monthly hops!  

Bracelet and Necklace together.  There are little green O beads between these really cool orange beads that may or may not be shells.  Very Easter Egg, yes?  

Close up of the bracelet.  Bright Spring Happy Colors! 

The necklace on Fleur

As you can see, I went full tilt with the color!  And why not after a long white winter?!
(it was still snowing as of two days ago )

Please go visit the six other participants.  Their blog links their photo months are listed below:

Hi Christine,
Wow this set is very bright and cheery I love the design. This is the perfect set to brighten up the gray days you have been having lately. Gee Mother Nature enough already!

still snowing? you needed the full tilt on the colors! I do love these two pieces; they are so happy and are going to be great with shorts and a Tshirt. I really do love how you've been using all the shape beads to create fun new patterns!

These pieces are so fun Christine! Perfect colors for the warm months. The lentil shaped orange beads are so neat!

Monique (A Half-Baked Notion) said...

Yay for colour! Beautiful designs :) I LOVE orange and the sweet "eggy" shapes, Christine :) Hope this means winter is done?? (Kidding, we had 8" on Frday... BOOO!)

Delicious! I can imagine how much you're craving color... and HOT colors!

Alicia said...

Beautiful - bright and shiny, just as the Easter eggs are :) You paired the colours perfectly too, I love the coral with blue, and that spark of calm in the green - it looks like a garden in the spring!

Beach wear!!! Those little blue beads/aka flowers are so pretty! While I love it as a set - I am particularly smitten with the bracelet- so pretty!!

Maryanne said...

I LOVE this! Orange is one of my favorite colors to work with for summer! This a fantastic necklace and I love all the colors together. Just too cool!

Wendy said...

what a lovely colourful set! I love those blue dagger-type beads and they go so well with the orange and green.

Your post is a definite mood brightener, Christine. You've totally captured the joy of spring with these!

Liz said...

Bravo! And you even managed to squeeze the O-beads in :-)
