Holiday Bling Blog Hop II Reveal

I participated in the first Holiday Bling Blog Hop and had an absolute blast! 

This one was a bit more challenging.

My partner for HBBH II was Renetha Stanziano of Lamplight Crafts. She is a very talented lady!! She and I emailed back and forth to get to know each other. However, when crunch time snuck up on me, I was stumped!! Renetha takes a "minimalist approach" to Christmas decorating so she and her family can focus on more important aspects of the Holiday season. She also doesn't wear jewelry, but she loves non-matching earrings. 

I didn't pay close attention to the emails and made a beautiful Christmas ornament:

However, before I sent the ornament, I re-read her emails and READ them well. So, I gave the ornament to my daughter-in-law. She LOVES it!

I was left with my dilemma - what do I send Renetha. I thought and thought. Then I realized I should send her some gorgeous lampwork beads - made by ME! And some non-matching earrings! I also threw in a couple of really awesome leaf links.  

Now - what I received from Renetha was Stunning to say the least! I am in love with my new piece of jewelry! (BTW - I had a variation of this necklace pinned on my Pinterest)

Thanks to Marlene Cupo and Shelley Graham Turner for once again hosting a fun blog hop!
