Welcome To Bead Soup Party Sept 2011


Welcome to the September 2011 Bead Soup Party

What is a bead soup party anyway? Well, Lori of Pretty Things Blog organized this great event. We signed up and we were paired up. Each pair sends the other a focal bead, a pretty clasp and matching beads. And then that's when we start creating.

Today is reveal day! Join us in this party by stopping by the blogs listed below. Do leave a comment! I'd love to meet you and hear from you! Enjoy...

My bead soup partner is Noemi Baena of Creaciones Noemi Baena Blog. She is from Spain and makes beautiful sterling silver jewelry (check out her etsy shop - here).  Here are the indgredients for the bead soup she sent...

And now for the big reveal...
I made several things from my soup...first a necklace with the focal bead...
I mixed different shape beads..a square focal..a circular brass component.. an elongated oval clay bead with flowers that I hand made...and a dangling heart charm...I love the colors and I really love how it looks when its worn...

Next, for the clasp...I made another necklace. The pendant is one of my own creations out of polymer clay...
Sweet! I also used the pretty heart crystals, sterling silver beads and violet swarovski crystals that were part of the matching beads sent to me.

There were a lot of pretty matching beads left over, so I created this....
a charm necklace with my own polymer clay pendant. The swarovskis definitely makes this one look extra classy!

Finally, my favorite one..a charm bracelet with a polymer clay centerpiece.

One of my most favorite things to make are charm bracelets...and i think this one I truly love!

I still have a few more beads left over and I'm planning something special for those too! Thanks so much Noemi! And super thanks to Lori! Great Job on another amazing blog party! I'm off to visit the others. Oh and if you're interested to join the next one...find out more

  1. Oh My!
    You have been a busy bee!!
    I love the necklaces you have made. They are beautiful.
    And I love the new insight to the beads I normally use. It is fascinating to see what different people with the same beads can make.
    Thanks for everything you sent as I have enjoyed myself, although it was a bit of a bumpy road not being able to communicate at the beginning and the beads not arriving. But I am happy to meet you.

  10. 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! They're still working on it, but it's like dial-up.

    Everything is so beautiful, and I think the dress you chose to highlight them against was perfect, because those necklaces are PERFECT for that style. The little delicate details are awesome, and the bracelet is great! Well done!


    I hope you participate again!

    Love, Lori
