Total Treasures Blog Hop - Hosted by Copper Diem

I am participating in Amy's Total Treasures blog hop, the inspiration for the hop is from an Esty treasury.  Amy thought that with all of the beautiful treasury's created we would find some wonderful inspiration.  She was right the treasury that she selected for me was Mustard Greens created by Jewelry by Nala.

I apologize for the size of my treasury, I was having problems with downloading, but you will see that there are several different green colors as well as some yellow mixed in my favorite color.  In my design I really wanted to try an blend all of the colors, I also added a bit of a pale orange color that I thought fit quite nicely. For the focal bead on the bracelet I used a Beady Monkey wooden tile, some ceramic beads that I forgot where I got them from, sorry as well as a lampwork bead from Blue Seraphim, as well as some czech glass beads and flower, lucite flower and some Vintaj chain , toggle and beads.

Thank you Amy for hosting this great blog hop and don't forget to check out the other participants.  You will find links for everyone below.

Take care,


  1. this is absolutely beautiful! you really were inspired by the treasury.

  2. Beautiful Bracelet.
    So far I am really impressed with this blog hop.
    Really great design!

  3. I absolutely love it and WANT it! I hate when I miss these hops -- I get SO behind on all the blogs I follow and am so sad to miss these things (I need someone to tell me!)

  4. Aw darn, I checked your store, it's not there. You must be keeping this treasure!

  5. So lovely! This colour combination is so pretty and match those vintaj elements so well.
    The focal is gorgeous!

  6. Love that piece, and how it works with the treasury! i didn't know about beady monkey, so now i have them hearted - that tile is cool!

  7. Love that focal bead, and how you have used those colors in the bracelet it looks like you have put alot of effort in to wrapping all those czech glass beads and it has really paid off. A really beautiful bracelet!

  8. Your bracelet is absolutely beautiful!! Your focal goes perfectly with the treasury!

  9. is it wrong to be desperately jealous I did not make this & am not wearing this RIGHT NOW?I think the treasury being small was almost an advantage, it distilled the palette for you. Really great piece, really :)

  10. I love this tile bead. Really cute match with the treasury that Amy found for you. have fun hopping.

  11. Great bracelet! totally perfect for fall!

  12. Absolutely gorgeous, I love the colours and I especially love the focal you used.

  13. Oh my word, that is awesome!! I can totally see me wearing this, and it's not like anything in my jewelry box. That focal is seriously cool, and I appreciate all the time spent in the wire wraps. Beautiful design!

  14. Wow you really nailed those colors! I love that you used metal but that it is so soft at the same time!

  15. Absolutely stunning!
    You have a wonderful eye and a beautiful and confident style.

    Warm regards,
