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.
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.
