7th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal

Time for Bead Soup Blog Party reveal!!  A big thank you to Lori Anderson for hosting the fabulous party!!

I want to thank my Soup partner Kristina  at peacockandlime for the awesome selection of beads and findings.
 
My first challenge making this sweet spring necklace was how to use the lovely little sparrow bird.  After thinking for a few minutes I knew it would look great on a green glass background.  I used some new glue that you just heat up with a heat gun!!  Presto it is securely fastened.. want to move it.. no problem..just heat up again.  attached the bail the same way.  I used black linen yarn for the neck cord..Love the antique silver Bali style tubes.  Bead dangles hanging from chain give the piece some length.  The antique silver clasp finishes off the necklace and gives a nice cohesive look!!
 
 
 
Here is a closer look at the focal piece.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The next piece that I designed uses natural linen yarn..I made a clasp out of black steel wire..hammered flat, added 2 smaller antique silver tubes (from my stash) at the top to make some nice loops for the jump rings and clasp that I made. 
I made a black steel wire abstract bead dangle to show off the lovely flame work flower bead, added some silver tubes, black seed beads and some rose quartz chips.  I normally do not use natural stone in my designs but  did enjoy the challenge of using them .
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here's a closer look at the bead dangle.. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Now for some ear rings... I had so many beads left over I just had to make some sweet little ear rings.
 
 
Rose quartz, black seed beads, antique silver rose beads
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Used the lovely  flame work beads here!!




Still more beads to work with!!
This time I used black elastic to make a very comfortable and easy to put on bracelet.. I just love to wear bracelets and can't leave my house with out sporting  one  on my wrist!! 
The big hole flame work beads work great with this style...Oversize jump rings secure the wire wrap rose quartz chips and black seed bead dangles!!
 
 
 
 
 
WOW... I think I have finished... Thanks a bunch Kristina for the great Soup mix that you sent me!!!

Absolutely gorgeous work, love love the necklace.

Nice work - great necklace.

Maneki said...

Really pretty jewellery! Great idea to put the swallow against a green background that enhance it so nicely. My favourite must be the last bracelet, a very creative and fab looking rake on stretch bracelets!

Sandra Young said...

Beautiful designs - really love the idea of elastic - gets me thinking!

Donetta said...

Love the bracelet...it's so cool, but very feminine. You did a wonderful job with your beads!

adlinah said...

Love the use of linen cord & elastic in your creations. That first necklace is so pretty and spring/summer-like.

min said...

how clever that you glued the sparrow pendant!! i especially like the linen yarn necklace and how u made the black wire pendant dangle... great work!!

KayzKreationz said...

What great pieces. What glue did you use for the bird on your first focal? It's great. And your steel focal/dangle is great, too. But I love your bracelet with the drops and beads.

Nan Smith said...

your pieces are so original!!! Love the use of fiber and metal together

Christine said...

Very creative and beautiful pieces! Great job with your soup!!

Barb Fernald said...

Wow! I love how you used yarns in the necklaces. The multiple strands add such a modern feel. The steel abstract focal works well to showcase the dangling bead. I am SO thinking about the black elastic cord I have laying around in the studio. I love how you used multiples of that in your bracelet. Creative and inspiring work!

The Jewelry Larder by Maybeline Tay said...

Lovely wirework especially for the bail you created to dangle the focal.

la mar de bonita said...

Nice cooking, Fay. Love the second necklace with the natural linen yarn with that beautiful hammered wire dangle!

steufel said...

Great job - and how cool is that - I worked with hemp/linnen too in this bead soup! isn't that material great - I love that rustic and urban look & feel!

Patricia Johnson said...

Great job with your soup. I just love your use if linen.

sam Waghorn said...

Fantastic use of the swallow and inspired using the linen.

Nelly May said...

Lovely breezy fresh feel to all of your pieces. I think you captured spring perfectly.

roomforchange said...

Gorgeous pieces!! Lovely focal!!

CraftyHope said...

You made such nice pieces! I haven't heard of that new glue before, sounds cool. I do like what you did with the sparrow though. Neat idea. And, that last bracelet is awesome. It almost feels like a contrast of soft and hard somehow. Well done!
