5th Bead Soup Blog Party!

Today is the day! 200 of us jewelry designers have traded bead soups with partners from all over the world, and today we are posting the creations we designed with the soups we received. My partner this time is Jennifer Justman of Souls Fire Designs.

This is the soup I sent Jennifer (her post here)

This is the soup she sent me (my post here)

Here is what I created out of the fabulous goodies Jennifer sent.
 I took one of my Lampwork focals, paired it with some PMC bead caps I had made with the tiny bead caps Jennifer sent. I then put it on some gunmetal chain and the beautiful silk ribbon she sent. I love this necklace!

I took the Amthyst chips she sent, paired it with some boro lampwork beads, sterling silver and 
Czech crystal, and gunmetal chain which I finished off with the handmade clasp she sent. :)

 This necklace had me stumped for awhile. I kept trying to add more, but it wanted to be simple. Now that I listened, I think it turned out great! It will be the perfect piece for one of my many red tops. :)
Here is where you can see what Jennifer did with the soup I sent her. Also be sure to check out all of the other participant, it is sure to be fun and have you wanting to run to your studio and create!
