What kind of soup I made

So I made quite a few items from the great beads she sent me.

First off I made a long necklace which incorporated the focal rose type ceramic piece.  With it I added a couple of carnelian lamp work glass beads as well as a few large Shiana Silver beads and then quite a few of her ceramic small round beads and two rose connectors.

I also made a couple of matching earrings and then a bracelet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to these pieces she had sent me a really cool flat ceramic connector.  I went marvelously with one of the ribbons she sent me so I ran the ribbon through a silver large link chain and made another bracelet.

    Beautiful pieces Cheryl! I think it’s funny that we both decided to make long necklaces! Thank you so much for being a great swap partner and sending me lots of wonderful glass beads that not only challenged me but were just a ton of fun to work with!

    Love how you put it all together! Love the Bohemian, random placement of all the beads. The rose colors go so nicely with the silver. The flashes of silver throughout are placed just right! Love what you did with the ribbon!

    With the necklace I love the way you used the metal spacers, just sets off the piece. The last bracelet is amazing too. The fiber gives it a nice not so fancy everyday wear type of look! All of your pieces were lovely.

    First of all I want to say how impressed I am with your creations. I would have had a difficult time with pink and silver components, but you did a beautiful job. I would buy and out just to wear that long necklace with:)

    I love your necklace, bracelet and earring set, and that is a high compliment considering pink is my least favorite color. The way you combined these pieces though is very interesting. It makes me consider wearing pink.
