It's a Bead Soup Blog Party?
Each is paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending a focal and clasp.
Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest, and choose to use the coordinating beads or not.
I was partnered with Molly Alexander ~ So funny that right after I received my pieces from here, I opened my BEAD TRENDS and saw she was the featured Artist last summer ~ It was nice to get to know her work a bit better. I hope you'll hop over to see what she created wit h my pieces ~ So excited I'm sure it will be truly amazing. Here's her post and blog ~ Click here
I received wonderful a hand beaded soul pendant and clasp which I totally love~
As well as Artisan glass beads and pretty little pink flower beads ~
I used a bit of everything in this design ~
|I wanted to design around the Pendant..."soul" The first thing I thought of is "Hey Soul Sister by Train really liked the idea.|
|I created the "Hey" bail in copper as well as the the sister link ~|
|The clasp is so beautiful...I almost hated to use it in the back|
|I created wire wrapped florettes to add some interesting shapes ~ I'm excited to create more of these!|
|I dangled 3 little pink flower beads for each of my kids and one on top for my sister ~|
|This was a first.....tube riveting ~ Got it right on the first try....I love this and will wear it all the time ~|
