Time for the 7th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party~ Third Reveal

April 27, 2013 

Every great party has a wonderful host and this one is no different! I would like to introduce her.  She is none other than the wonderful and talented artist and author Lori Anderson. She has battled thru some pretty tough things to bring this party to us.  Sleepless nights sorting emails, pairing 500+ participants up, setting up pintrest board for sharing, and even a contest judged by some very important people as well.
Thank you Lori, from the bottom of my beady heart! 

I was really excited to take on a project of this size. This is my first time participating in a Bead Soup event. 
I struggled with what to send my partner. Would I send enough material and would she like it? You can see what I sent here.
Before I reveal what I have made with the wonderful collection of pretties from the very talented artist
I want to refresh your memory with what we had swapped.  
This is the wonderful soup that I received from 
Cindy Cima Edwards~Make sure to see what she made with the beads I sent her.
I sat for a few days just admiring the colors and getting a feel for the soup.

The first thing that jumped out at me were the lovely pink recycled glass beads.  I just loved holding them up to the light and looking thru them.-Here is what they became..
From the soup: I used: Pink recycled glass beads, the medium brass connector rings,and half of the toggle that Cindy sent me.  From my collection: I used copper wire to wrap the beads and made the other half of the toggle.  I also added a bit of chain for comfort.

The next item that I wanted to work with was the lovely Ice Resin focal. 

I just loved it!
From the Soup: I used the focal, some of the Sari ribbon, one large jump ring for clasp, the other half of the toggle that was sent to me , pink aventurine beads, rhodonite round beads, couple of bead caps, some bronze headpins. From my collection: I added the bronze chain, the brown suede, cord findings, some jump rings to tie it all together. 
I also created these cute earrings.. I love the ribbon on them.
From the Soup: I used more pink aventurine beads, rhodonite beads, bronze bead caps, Sari ribbon.

Then I wanted to use the other focal, Cindy sent me a Rhodonite focal that she wrapped for me using some bronze colored wire and some of the gold plated beads.
From the soup: I used the rhodonite wire wrapped focal, Sari ribbon, One of the "Hope" brass rings, and the faceted rhodonite beads. From my collection: I made a wire wrapped toggle to go in the hope clasp, then I added the bronze colored ceramic beads, jump rings, and ear wires for the earrings. 
I returned to my favorite technique: wire wrapping this is the next item I created..
From the soup:  I used the round pink chalk turquoise beads. From my collection: I added the pink cording and several 10mm light pink crystals, I used brass wire to simulate gold, and I made a clasp to complete the necklace.
I wanted to change direction and move to the unakite beads. See what I came up with..
From the soup: I used the unakite beads, the gold plated beads, and the second "hope"ring.
From my collection:  I used some bronze chain, reclaimed vintage orange/pink beads, some oval findings. Again, I made the toggle, but I just love the little flower I made to hand from the clasp.

I wanted to do something with the pink aventurine, It just wasn't coming together, I laid them out and finally I saw my grandmother's pearl necklace. I have never tried to hand knot beads. I think I did pretty good I only took it apart once. I even made earrings to match.

From the soup: I used the remaining pink aventurine beads & rhodonite beads.
From my collection: I used embroidery floss and couple of bead caps. Finally I made an "S" clasp to finish it off. 

With only a little time left and very few beads, I was able to come up with one last piece.
From the Soup: Chalk turquoise briolettes.  From my collection: I added the 4mm white mother-of-pearls, pink glass pearls, brass chain, brass rondels.

Nothing like last minute inspiration- I will have to post it later once I finish it.

Things I have learned from participating in this event:

I have never mixed metals before in a project, it is a technique I will be using from now on.
I have not worked with the Sari ribbon before, I am hooked.
I learned to make my own earwires.
I learned to fabricate a complete toggle clasp 
I have learned to knot beads.

    ReplyDelete
  47. To be honest, I was at first, I wanted to make my partner proud. But Pink is one of my favorite colors and the green just complimented it so well. I was so nervous about using the knots. I hadn't added that to my techniques until this challenge. Thanks for stopping by :)
