21 8th Annual Bead Soup Reveal

Welcome To My First Bead Soup Blog Party....

I am super excited to share my creations as a participant of the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party. To learn more about what a Bead Soup Blog party is all about click HERE.

First of all, I wish to apologize to my partner Lori Callahan and our Host Lori Anderson for my late reveal.

My partner Lori sent me an array of seed, glass beads, an incredible Pendant and a Beautiful Button I used as my clasp.

This was the Bead Soup I received from Lori.....

For my first piece, I created a necklace. I decided to add some sparkle to the Pendant by adding Seed and Firepolished beads embellishments and created a Bail using Crossweave Technique. The neck strap for this necklace is a Seed and Firepolished Spiral Rope.

The Necklace's clasp consists of a beaded closure made from the Beautiful Glass button with a basic loop closure.

My second piece is a pair of earrings using Peyote Stitch plus Seed and the cute Star glass beads included in my Soup.

I made a second pair of earrings using Bead Crochet plus Seed and the wonderful Glass Bead mix received with my Soup. The basic construction consisted of 5 seed beads, 1 focal bead repeats; worked into loops.

My last piece is a Bead Crochet bracelet using the same bead repeats as for the earrings.

I had fun participating and creating these jewelry pieces. I hope my partner Lori likes what I created with her wonderful Bead Soup. Please visit Lori's Blog to view the wonderful pieces she created.
