Bead Soup Blog Party

Today is the first reveal for the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party!  I want to start by saying thank you to Lori Anderson for hosting these fun blog hops.  She puts her heart into making them happen, and it's a lot of work.  We all appreciate everything you do, Lori!  I'd also like to give a shout out to my partner, Pamela Gangler, who sent me a most generous soup that I had lots of fun with!

A reminder of the soup Pamela sent to me...


My first design is a pair of earrings using the pretty pink Czech glass rondelles.


 Next, a bangle bracelet featuring the focal.


Finally, a cha-cha bracelet with the pretty toggle and the green glass.  I love the way this one turned out, airy and light, reminiscent of Springtime.


I made three items with my soup, and I still have "left overs".  I have plans for those ingredients as well, and I can't wait to put my designs together.  I've enjoyed participating in this fun party, and now I'm off to see what everyone else created!

  3. Your earrings are so unique, I just love them. I'm trying to figure out what the bracelet part is on the pink focal bracelet...is it chain, or lentil beads? It looks wonderful. You did such a stunning job on your soup!

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Shirley! The base of the bracelet is copper wire that has been twisted and coiled.
