Remember I wrote about the Bead Soup Blog Party a while back? Well, I mixed up my soup, added a few ingredients and off I went to create some jewels!
This is the second year I have taken part in the ‘Pretty Things’ Bead Soup Blog Party and it is always so much fun. From the initial partnering up to the excitement of receiving my bead soup in the mail, to the making of the final pieces. Here is what I made last year, I have to say I am still a little in love with that butterfly ring.
I knew I wanted to make a ring this year and I also wanted to use linen thread in the main piece. One of the coconut buttons begged me to be a ring and who was I to argue? The salmon hue of the linen complements the heart focal perfectly I think.
Thanks to Cassi of Beads: Rolling Downhill blog for my lovely Soup, I can’t wait to go and see what she did with the beads I sent to her. Click on the link to pop over and take a look.
I made the lovely button ring, simple, but such a pretty button, what else does it need?
The earrings are one of my favourite designs, dramatic with out the weight. Summery casual or evening beauty.
Just look at that clever little heart, it is gorgeous and reversible. Yellow mood? Blue mood? You decide! This is a long long necklace at thirty inches and I a super happy with how it turned out.
Thanks again to Cassi for the beads and the ever wonderful Lori of Pretty Things blog for organizing the whole darn thing, a brilliant job as usual.
