Welcome! Today is the reveal day for the Bead Soup Blog Party. Below are the beads that I received from my party partner, Dyanne. My challenge was to create something using what she sent me. I completed three pieces, although I had planned to finish one more, I ran out of time. I had a lot of fun and really enjoy the pieces that I created. Thanks Dyanne! And a huge thanks to Lori Anderson, our amazing hostess for the party.
The beads I sent to Dyanne.
The beads Dyanne sent me.
The first bead I picked up was the awesome Jade oval donut pendant. I just love working with this shape! I wire wrapped it and paired it on a necklace with Rainbow Fluorite, Quartz and Aventurine. I had some Jade discs in my stash, so I also created matching earrings.
The second necklace I created starts with a wire wrapped pendant made of a White Quartz disc, shell ceramic art bead (anyone know the artist?), and a tear drop shaped shell. The pendant hangs from a strand of Swarovski crystals and Czech glass accenting the White Quartz beads from Dyanne and two ceramic beads by Splendid Loon Studio. I used Terracast pewter and sterling silver beads, along with undyed waxed linen cording to complete the necklace, giving it a nice beachy feel.
I had such an amazing time participating in another edition of the Bead Soup Blog Hop. Be sure to check out the other participants blogs!
