Bead Soup Blog Party #7 Reveal

Oh my gosh I am so excited to share with you my necklace that I made with my lovely partner’s beads.  The beads came super quick, and I was excited to work with beads that I haven’t worked with since I started beading in 1991 – large seed beads, as well as a few bits of glass, a lovely pendant, lots of metal components, and a clasp.

Here is my soup.

My Bead Soup

I got a whole pre-pack bag full of seed beads as well as the little bicones, lovely aventurine, and several metal components.  My favorite though, was the acrylic pendant that looks as if it is vintage.  I was excited to get to work!  Honestly, I finished my jewelry a LONG time ago.

Here is my lovely necklace.

Since I’ve been so busy with school, I never posted what I sent.  Here’s the soup I sent Erin, my partner.

My partner's soup: Handcrafted ceramic pendant barrels and squares, silver plated clasp with design, and a full strand of funky indian agate.

I hope that Erin enjoyed my soup and that you’ve enjoyed my reveal.
