The Second Bead Soup Reveal is finally here

HI Everyone, this is my second time participating in the Bead Soup Party (huge thanks to Lori Anderson – organizer extraodinaire for all her work).  I just love this idea and to participate with such a fun and giving community.

I was so lucky to have such a wonderful partner as Jo-Ann Woolverton.  She sent me such a fabulous assortment of wonder.

Assortment of Soup ingredients


So I made a number of wonderful items that went with kind of an ocean theme for the big necklace.  I added in some of my stash of silver sea type shells etc.

The necklace that used almost all the bits as well as the large lampwork focal.


Then I made some matching earrings.  I really enjoyed working with the small etched blue beads and the lovely silver bent discs.

navy swaroski, then cool silver discs followed by the etched blue square beads, smaller silver discs then another swaroski and a silver swirl dangle.


Then of course I needed to make a matching bracelet with the beads, more silver and dangles.


I also had to make some earrings out of the darling blue tear drop shaped beads that she sent.

The blue tear drop beads “blinged up” with a navy swarovski and a little silver disc.


Finally I created a totally different themes set of earring with the gorgeous clear briolettes that she sent.  I haven’t used this shape much but sure did love them on the earrings and I have incorporated them into a cuff I will share later.


Etched nickel behind the copper hands then the fabulous briolettes at the bottom.

Thanks again to Jo-Ann and a huge thanks to Lori Anderson for her selfless work on this fantastic project that coordinates us all into pairs and reveal dates.  It is really appreciated.

    Wow!! I love the seaside theme. The added silver seashells are wonderful. The etched blue squares look like sea glass so perfect for your theme. The wavy silver discs are a favourite of mine too, I used copper ones in my bracelet.
    Thanks for being so creative with all that I sent you, and thanks for the wonderful soup that you sent to me.

    Great soup! I guess I came in time to see the cuff first and I just love it. It sounds like etching can be quite addictive but i can see you had already been having a whole lot of fun with the rest. Great job!
