Back in January, I contacted DeAnna at Nina Designs about joining the Nina Designs Blog Partners. They have also launched a new Blog Partnership Program on Facebook that I find very exciting. So when DeAnna e-mailed me that I would be accepted to join, I was ecstatic! At the end of March, Nina Designs sent me findings, charms, and leather cording - gold tone and green. What's not to like about those colors!
The "package" arrived while Art & I were in Florida visiting our daughter & son-in-law. When we got home & I opened it, I was so excited to get started I forgot to take pictures of "the items". :( What a ding dong! Everyone knows you take pictures BEFORE you start work on creating! Two days later, my mom had a black spot in her left eye & couldn't see. So the next few weeks were taken up with doctor visits to specialists to find out what was wrong. Long story - short - wet macular degeneration! Oh boy! Anyway, I did take pictures but it was after work began. Sorry DeAnna!
These pictures are from the links DeAnna sent me. Nina Designs has a great website and a very nice selection of product.

When I remembered to take a picture, it was about midnight. Really not the best time to take pictures!
Then it was on to attaching the pendant, the charms & a few gemstones. I used some jade prism & cylindrical beads that I purchased at a bead show in Austin, TX a few years ago. The color is a perfect match to the leather & looks soooo good together.
Finally, the earrings - a piece of braid, a circle link, a charm for each (I used a feather on one & a heart on the other as I do like things asymmetrical on occasion), and a bead.
Thank you Nina Designs for allowing me the privilege of working with you and I hope we can do it again. Nina Designs can also be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ninadesigns
