The Gossiping Goddess Giveaway and Blog Hop

A while back I told you about a giveaway that Lesley Watt did on her blog The Gossiping Goddess.  I was one of the lucky winners of some adorable lampwork glass beads handmade by Kaz Baildon.

I showed a sneak peek of what I received in this post and, of course, I forgot to take pictures of the beads Lesley sent me before I started playing with them.  I  had lots of ideas for using these triangular beads but I went back to my first thought when I saw them which was earrings, they just scream earrings don't they?  

The colors of the beads are teal and baby blue, I paired this with an opaque blush pink and dark cranberry.  I think they look Christmas-ee, in a Dr. Suess kinda way...don't you?

Thanks Lesley for hosting this fun giveaway and blog hop.  I also received 4 spacer beads in the same teal color that I will be using soon! 

Maybe I will use some Christmas money and get myself one of Lesleys gorgeous textured metal clay components to go with them!

I am going to go see what everyone else made...come with me and check out these great artists!  Don't forget to leave a comment below, I love to hear from you.
