Znetshows Summer challenge - Days and Nights

Time is drawing near for the Znetshows Summer challenge, Creative Spark Summer digital magazine, and a blog hop! (we're having a blog hop this time!). The theme this time is "Day and Night". We were asked to pick two colors of cultured sea glass from the Znetshows web site and to create jewelry for day and for night. For "day", I was thinking about 4th of July and wanted to do a patriotic themed design. So, I picked Cherry Red and Light Sapphire. The light sapphire turned out to be a bit lighter than I imagined, but that's ok! It's pretty anyway.

The below photo is a shot of all the beads I received. There are red elongated barrels and rondelles, along with irregular circle links (very cool!) and two pairs of fishes. The bigger fish remind me of the fish in "Candy Crush Saga" that wiggle across the screen when you complete a level (is anyone else hooked on Candy Crush Saga??) Also, in both my colors, there are sand dollars! They have great detail. I am thinking hard about them, and hope to come up with a beach themed design - time will tell. Other beads in light sapphire are the hour glass shaped beads, concave diamond charm/pendants, and oval rings.
They did warn us that we could also receive colors in addition to the colors we selected. I also received opaque purple barrels and turquoise free form flat pendants, just to make it interesting!

I will let you know when the blog hop will be (mid-July), and if my designs will be featured in the Creative Spark Summer digital magazine!
