Soup's On! -- Come and get it!

I must admit this Bead Soup was a tad overwhelming for me, I hadn't a clue where to go with what I had received.. Don't get me wrong here but Jayne my partner sent me a fabulous mix! I just couldn't seem to wrap my head around design this time!

So I decided to just dump everything on my table.. mix it all together as see where the elements would take me! Still nothing!

I looked up... and there it was the copper coil, and a jar of mixed up copper parts I had been playing with and had put off to the side! Cutting a random length of copper wire, wrapping it free form around my wrist to form the base, then manipulating the sari silk into place.. I started my journey.

This is the first piece I completed...



I was so excited with how this came out I proceeded to make another! I used up the rest of the sari silk that Jayne sent and using the chess piece as the focal!


Creating the necklace took a little longer.
I had to walk away from it several times before I came with this!

The lovely floral focal along with the handmade bone and copper clasp Jayne created herself brings a dynamic pop of color effect to this necklace. The disk beads are from Africa, the large ovals are Chinese and I have no clue if they are right side up or upside down!

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a fabulous day!

  24. Great Job! My favorite was the one with the red checker. I found it a challenge to work with the beads I received in this swap as well. It was great to have to break out of my comfort zone. Challenges are good (saying this to myself)
