Bead Soup Blog Party..CREATIONS REVEALED!

Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!
What is a Bead Soup Blog Party?

 Each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending the following:

~ A focal
~ A special clasp (not just a lobster claw)
~ Some coordinating spacers or beads
My partner was Lisa Liddy of Joolz by Lisa.  She sent me a wonderful focal to start with.
                                                                 Here is what I started with .

Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest, and choose to use the coordinating beads or not.
                                                      Here's what I made!  I Love this focal.


                                                      
                                                             
                                                          Here is what I made with the veggie beads

  11. Very nice pieces! They are both well composed in terms of both colors and textures; that first focal is especially cool and makes me think of lilies beside a pond. Great work!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Both are lovely pieces. The veggie one makes me smile.

  13. Hi Linda,

    What FUN! I love the veggie necklace and absolutely adore the blue and silver piece. I have noticed a reoccuring theme of sea / ocean / beach designs on the the hop. There must be some magic floating around!

    I decided to start at the bottom of the list (I'm in the middle at #95). I hope you get a really good response from the swap/hop -- So much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  30. When I started looking at your piece, I thought.."Oh, what a great design!" and then I scrolled down and realized how long it was and thought..."DANG, GIRL!". See, I'm currently obsessed with long necklaces, so this definitely speaks to my OCD. Wonderful piece!

    ReplyDelete
  31. both are great.the second necklace is such a 'happy' necklace :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ha ha! Love the veggie necklace. Who doesn't need a reminder every now and then to eat their veggies? :)

    ReplyDelete

  37. You did a great job! I feel so unambitious when I see that multiple people whipped up several designs with their Bead Soup Components. You get an A+ for sure!

    Great designs, very elegant and wearable.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  53. Very pretty necklaces! They are both beautiful, though I am a little partial to the first simply because I love blue and green. ;D Don't get me wrong, though, I like the second a lot, too. The flowers make me smile, happy that spring is coming. The asymmetry in that one makes it seem more organic, like you plucked it fresh from the garden. ;) I like that both were done with silver; gives them a bright, clean look. Lovely designing!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Both pieces are awesome. I love the all the contrasts between the two. Sorry for the late comment, I'm still hopping :)
