8th bead soup reveal !

2 May

My partener for this year is Penny Haughton from Australia,Penny sent a soup that I really liked! Beautiful colors,materials,and shapes!


See the careful hand made pendant? she sent this as a gift along with needles and beading thread,Thank you Penny!

I’ve always wanted to work with polymer,with no success,I like that piece !

and the needles and thread? i really liked the idea,most of jewelry makers use them,but I’ve never seen them in the bead soup event before,Thank you for these too!

There was a cute post card too,but my camera decided to go out of battery when I wanted to picture it!

It was fun to work with such soup!

I made two pieces… (so far) a necklace and a bracelet,and I really hope to make a matching necklace for it too




yea,this bracelet is not finished yet,’ll finish it this week…

Wish the images were better,but lots of things were going on these few last months,and I actually posted this half sleepy !

I hope that penny likes what I made with her soup,and that she had fun working with the one I sent

dont forget to visit her blog http://www.smellynelly.blogspot.com.au/

and the rest of participants  http://lorianderson-beadsoupblogparty.blogspot.com//2014/04/welcome-to-8th-bead-soup-blog-party.html

Had to post it on Friday night,Because I have class on Saturday morning!

Have fun!

    The necklace is beautiful but that bracelet is stunning!!!!

  24. Audrey Bélanger May 13, 2014 at 5:12 pm #

    Is the bottom part of the necklace beadweaving ? It almost look like dragon scales when you look at it from this angle !

  25. Silvia May 13, 2014 at 9:16 pm #

    If there is something I adore is the combo between simple stringing and beadwork, and you also used a bold color combo, simply stunning!

  26. stregajewellry May 14, 2014 at 5:01 am #

    Beautiful colors in your soup! Yummy! I really like the necklace, the asymmetry of the colors, the way the pendant hangs. Beautiful!

  27. Amber Dawn May 16, 2014 at 6:40 am #

    Really nice (un)finished pieces! I especially like the cuff in progress! Beautiful set, all in all!

  28. Kelly Hosford Patterson May 16, 2014 at 9:15 am #

    Lovely balance on the necklace and your bracelet is absolutely exquisite.

  29. Tammy Adams May 16, 2014 at 3:57 pm #

    Beautiful designs. The bracelet is already stunning even if it isn’t completed. The necklace is just gorgeous.

  30. Kay May 17, 2014 at 5:13 am #

    Your beadwork is awesome. I really like the way you hung the focal in the necklace. And the bracelet looks like it’s going to be a killer. Can’t wait to see it finished and what else you make.
