Pearls! Pearls!! Pearls!!! Blog Hop II

Are you ready to ROCK SOME PEARLS?!! (Again)



I am, too!
(Seriously, when am I not?!!)



I've been rather quiet this year (jewelry wise) due to my work schedule and family life and I haven't been able (sadly) to participate in any of the fun blog hops, challenges and social media events.

When a couple of gals ask me if I was going to do another Pearls Blog Hop this year, I responded that I hadn't thought about it. 

One mentioned that if I did another Pearls hop I should do it in June, since the Pearl is June's Birthstone, and I knew it would definitely be fun, so I decided to just do it!





 Okay, here's the Scoop:


1) Create something (doesn't have to be jewelry *Gasp!*) with pearls in it. A lot of pearls, a few pearls - your choice. Your creation can be any style or pay homage to any era, age, region, etc.  (Classic, Glam, Boho, Cottage-Chic, Goth, Steampunk, Art Deco, etc.) You name it - you can make it!

2) They can be real pearls (freshwater, saltwater, Tahitian, South Sea) or imitation pearls (Swarovski, Czech glass, plastic, shell pearls, etc.), or a mixture is just fine, too!

3) Post the reveal of your creation(s) on Sunday, June 29th, 2014 on your blog and then come here and link up with the Inlinkz tool I'll have posted at the bottom of my post on June 29th.  (This way it's easy for people to link up and hop around).

That's it! Pretty Simple, huh?! 


 










 

Hop on over to my Pearls, Pearls, Pearls
 Pinterest Board and check out all the items I've pinned.






And, why not start your own Pearls Pinterest Board and keep track of all your favorite Pearl Pics! 


Here's the link to last year's 
Pearls! Pearls!! Pearls!!! Blog Hop Reveal post.






There's tons of links on last years Pearls Blog Hop post related to pearls; from Pinterest Boards to tutorials on designing with pearls, Pearl History, Education and Pearl Farming.  There's even several bead shops and suppliers so you can shop for gorgeous pearls, too.

And, here's the link to my Pearls Page here on the blog as well, with even more information and inspiration for you.





So, whatcha waitin' for?
Go create with your pearls because as you know,....


"Pearls are for any person, for any reason, any time, any place, any season!"

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and PEARLS, Baby!!

Feel free to put the Pearls! Pearls!! Pearls!!! Blog Hop Button up on your blog if you'd like, too.





See you and your gorgeous Pearls on

Sunday - June 29th, 2014!

  2. I didn't make it when the last Pearls! Pearls!! Pearls!!! Blog Hop was done, but – while my job is still keeping me busy as hell – I'm doing a lot better now in handling deadlines. I think. *laughs* I'd love to give this a try. <3

    1. Oh yeah - glad you're joining in Lynda!! It's only been since last September,...but I followed the suggestion of one of my online friends and went w/June since the Pearl is June's birthstone. And this year, there's even more Pearls showing up in fashion in every way shape and form than last year. Which of course, suites me just fine!! :-)

    1. Yippee Cynthia!! :-) I know,...Layla's always up for photographs. Wish she lived closer, but her Mama takes great pics of her for me! Her Mama is not only my niece by also my Goddaughter, so I call Layla my 'Great-God-Daughter' (my GG-baby!! LOL!) And she's definitely a hoot and a half, let me tell you!!)
