My Reveal-Bead Soup Blog Party

Let me remind you of all the wonderful items I received from my partner Joyce!




Here is a picture of some other items she sent!



And finally what I made!


The Bracelet:  I love the color of these vintage beads because they go so well with the turquoise spacers and the brass beads.  Also Joyce did such a beautiful job with the patina she put on the heart.

The earrings which I mixed the metals to have brass and copper.  The picture doesn't quite do the patina justice because the blues and greens are just beautiful!

 And finally the necklace.  I placed the beautiful clasp that Joyce hand wired with the bead mix to the side because I really wanted to showcase it as well as the fabulous Vintaj focal piece she did. I added some copper chain that just goes partially around the necklace.  I drilled a hole in the bottom because these yellow rondeles she sent are just so pretty.

I love, love love what my partner sent me and I hope I did her lovely things justice. Please visit Joyce's blog and see her pieces that she made with my bead soup! I know you will be as stunned as I was how beautiful her pieces are!!!
Joyce also sent me this lovely button she had and a silver clasp(you can see both in the picture).  I am already working on something else and will post when I am finished.

  1. Your partner here - making the first comment - woo hoo. I'm thrilled to see what YOU did with those pieces. I wish you could have heard me say "I never would had thought of that" several times as I looked at each picture. You did a fabulous job with the pieces you received from me - literally, I wouldn't have known what to do with those. I just don't have that skill, I guess. Thanks for being my partner - we DID have fun, didn't we!
