Bead Soup Party - A second helping

Looking for this?
Bead Soup Blog Party - The reveal (Part I)

I had so many great ideas from my mix that I had to separate it into two posts
This is Part II of my BSBP reveal. Click the link above if you have not yet seen Part I.

I took a moment to photograph my table as I worked.
(It's also Bead Table Wednesday!)

Bead Soup Project Five
Red Aventurine, Serpentine, Quartz and Carnelian gemstones
Glass beads, Pewter and Gold toned Upcycled metals

 Those large Quartz nuggets came from my bead soup partner, Teri, and the rest is from my own stash. As I mentioned in my previous post, I normally do not work with gold. So I decided to experiment with mixing gold and silver. I had no idea what this bracelet was going to be when I first started working, but I like how it came out. It's fun, nothing to serious ;)


Bead Soup Project Six
Gemstone pendant from Teri
Green Agate, Yellow Opal and Czech glass beads

I'm unsure of what the pendant stone is, but it's beautiful! I used some matching beads to make a short braid, finished off with some cones and sterling silver chain.

My Partner:
My wonderful partner is Teri from Born To Be Worn. The bead soup mix she sent to me was truly perfect and I have had so much fun creating these pieces. Be sure to stop by her blog and see what she made using the bead mix I sent her!

Thank you for such an amazing experience Teri!

  1. Lovely soup mix, I like the bracelet especially.

  2. That bracelet is adorable! It's funny b/c I had to take a 2nd look it when I read that you mixed gold and silver...I didn't even realize it on first inspection. I'd say it works!

  3. Wow!! Gorgeous work! I think your experiment with gold and silver came out fantastic.


  4. Oooh, the second helping was just as good as the first. The gold and silver really did work out very well. Grat job again!


  5. These turned out beautiful as well. Love how you did the multi-strand.
