The Bead Soup Blog Party - The Big Reveal






I've been having such a great time with my bead soup and checking out all the other blogs. Really, it's been a blast. Now has come the day when we reveal our finished pieces. I've been really looking forward to this day, so much that I made my blog post early and am publishing it now. Cool. This way I can work on the post and edit it over the next few days.

My piece is complete, except for a last minute edition, which I added a couple of nights ago. Here is my swap partner's blog to see what she created with the soup I sent her: Doralila Beads

There is a list of all the other blogs on Lori Anderson's Pretty Things blog so please visit them and join in the party:

  6. Wonderful! You have created a terrific piece of wearable art. I like your use of color and texture and the great asymmetrical placement of the focal bead. Thank you for sharing your artistic process along the way. Cheers!

  7. I am SO sorry for being late -- today our internet provider decided to crash. My stress level is through the roof, to say the least!

    WOW but this is my kind of jewelry. I'd wear this in a heartbeat. I love the texture and the lampwork is divine and the dangles (you know how much I love dangles). I'm so glad your beads got to you ALL the way to Perth, and I hope you participate again!

    Love, Lori
