Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal

It was my pleasure to be partnered with Jean A. Wells please be sure to check out her blog for some amazing pieces!
Jean sent me some lovely ingredients for my soup. Here is her winning recipe. 1 handmade pendant created by the very talented Kylie Parry, 25 Brown Sugar beads, 1Fancy Floral Clasp, 1 Green Jasper Nugget, 6 10 mm wood roundelles, 2 Green Picasso Czech Bicone Beads, 5 Dark Forest Porcelain Beads by Ingrid, 8 8mm Fire Polish Topaz Beads and 8 8mm Topaz Crackle Beads.




Here is what I created using her recipe. I hope you enjoy it.
First for the bracelet here I drilled a second hole in the pendant made by Kylie Parry, I made a copper spiral which I then covered with some lovely fiber that is meant to be doll hair. I did a right angle weave with an assortment of the beads from my soup along with some Czech fire polish from my own collection. I made a little pair of earrings to match shown further below.




The bracelet below was created with beads from the soup with the addition of found metal washers from the local recycle business, I also made the S hooks, the closure is a snap clasp from my stash.




The next bracelet was created using a lamp work bead that was given to me as a gift from a friend, sugar beads from the soup, turquoise Heidi beads and red size 11 seed beads. I used a recycled clasp doe this piece.





Finally two pair of earrings using Beads from the soup in addition to fiber, components, & Czech fire polish from my stash.





I hope you enjoyed my blog and are having lots of fun hopping around the participating artist's blogs! I am! Please leave a comment that you were here.

A BIG Thank You to Lori Anderson for organizing this fantastic annual event. Be sure to continue your journey by visiting all the Participants. I am in awe of all the artists and the wonderful talent on display.
This is what I sent to Jean, I made the ceramic pendants, and face pendant that you see at the bottom right of the photo. WOW did she ever work some magic with this soup! I love all the pieces she created!



-Happy Beading! Judy

  1. Judy, I have had such fun with the soup you sent me. I haven't began working on the skulls and bones yet as I am waiting on some materials specially ordered for the project I am planning, but I'm finished with the rest of it. Check my blog to see what is left -- not much. It was my goal to use everything. Wasn't able to use everything, but you'd be surprised at how little is left.

  19. Judy, I love that you made bracelets. My favorite is the one with the sugar beads. Those are some of my favorite beads. I too love the furry earrings. I love using fiber in my designs. I really enjoyed being partnered with you and had a blast designing with the ingredients you sent me. You gave me such a wide variety of stuff. Someone yesterday suggested that I make a bracelet to match the face pendant necklace, a piece I have named "Judy", and I think that is something I am going to do in the next week or two. Thank you.
