Bead Soup and Baseball

My first Bead Soup Party Reveal!

  I would like to thank Lori Anderson for coordinating this fabulous event!  Bead Soup is a labor of love for Lori.  Please be sure to visit her blog.

I am also overwhelmed by the tremendous response I have received regarding the "Best Bead Give-A-Way Ever"  Everyday, I enter names and numbers on a spreadsheet.  Lori will pick the winning numbers on July 2nd - I wanted to make it as fair as possible!  Please click the side link or scroll down to enter my contest.

My partner  Amanda Davie sent me this incredible bead soup mix and the Sari silk. 


My Three "Bead Soup" Necklaces
Please click on photos to enlarge.


I love Amanda's hand-made "Hope" clasp.



This design features Amanda's hand-made resin bird pendant and bronze wood clasp.






Amanda also created the centerpiece link, the tiny bottle with the feather and the copper "Journey" pendant.

  2. Thanks Rebecca - It is always hard when you put yourself out there - some people will the love the designs - some will not, but I am really happy with what I created. My favorite is also the "Red" necklace (I think that is why I posted it as number one).

  8. They all caught and held my eye and my attention! I have to admit that the second piece of art really held me the longest. The others were equally vivid and intense--but the bird necklace reminded me the starlings' nest outside my bedroom window! Fabulous way to use all those luscious ingredients for more than one flavor of soup!

  10. You got some really cool things in your soup. I think my favorite piece is the red one. I don't use or wear red much, but do love the color and this particular necklace is so rich and vibrant and I love how you used the turquoise beads with it. The other two are beautiful too.

  35. Wow...words fail me. I really love what you did with your soup! My favorite is the second one. I love the bird pendant and the way that you used the other components to interpret that. I have so enjoyed looking at all the entries in this swap.

    As a first time visitor to your blog, I hope that you will take my next comment as it is meant (constructively). I personally find it difficult to read your blog; the background is just a little too prominent. Just my humble opinion - take it for what it's worth.

  36. Wow! Denise...I love them all and can't pick a favorite. They are all just beautiful!
    Bead Happy!
