I have to say a huge thank you to Lori Anderson from http://www.prettythingsblog.com for organizing this great Bead Soup adventure again. And then to my amazingly generous partner Monique Urquhart from http://ahalfbakednotion.blogspot.ca New Brunswick. So here are the first ones that are done. I received so much that I will also post a couple more pieces later this weekend.Remember the amazing packages that came……
Well inside were these:
So the first project was to use the focal from Monique. I also used a handmade bronze toggle as well as the amazing picasso beads. Then I through in some of my brass stash bits.
Joanne sent me a tiny package of silver birds and bird links (see them in the bottom run the middle so I made this set.
Stay tuned for the last piece using the tiny ceramic houses. These were just too precious so they deserve their own post. Also I have a really cool set of jewelry I made with all the mother of pearl that she sent me (spoiler alert it has an Egyptian revival theme!!)
Happy hopping and be sure to stop back to see the house pieces and some Egyptian inspired pieces.
