7th Bead Soup Bead Party - Reveal

 Hey Everyone,

Its finally time to reveal my pieces for the Bead Soup Blog Party.
So excited....happy dance!

A little reminder of the soup I received from my partner Carmen at Little Maketto... loads of interesting little packages...And lots of challenges!!


Remember we have to use the focal and the clasp that is sent to us but we can use some of our own beads in our creations too. I used Every.Single.Bead that  Carmen sent me, bar 1, and I added a few of my own to two of the pieces.

The first piece I made was a cuff bracelet with memory wire. I absolutely love how  it turned out. 

I wasn't sure what to make with the lilac teardrop shell beads that were in the soup, until I received an order from Ply containing these gorgeous turquoise Moroccan Flower beads. I also added a handmade wire bead to make a pendant. This is totally my favourite piece of all.
 

The focal that I received is really striking, so I decided to make it just that....the focus! I added a few beads to the chain to accent the colours and it is simple but perfect...
  

The purple miracle beads were perfect for a bracelet, I teamed them up with my own stash of lime green frosted glass beads and made a cluster bracelet. I used the wee butterfly beads too and the beautiful clasp. This bracelet just shouts Spring doesnt it?


I also had 3 gorgeous Agate disc beads as well as a few leaves, in my soup. The colour palate is perfect for Autumn and that's the season I'm currently experiencing! I added in 2 large bronze rings to complement the discs.

Don't forget to pop across to see my partner Carmen's creations at Little Maketto

  45. Your pieces are all so great. I really like your bracelet with the memory wire. I've been wanting to make a cuff with memory wire for a while, and you may have finally inspired me to just do it! I love the gold/bronze you paired with the purple. It's regal and elegant and just luscious. As well, your necklace with the focal is beautiful. I especially like the way you dangled the cube beads. The effect of them sitting side by side is kinda cool. Excellent work!!
