Happy Saturday Sweeties!
The weekend is here & today is a day many of us SOUPER'S have been waiting for...
it's finally BEAD SOUP Reveal Day!!!
Yipppppeeee.....are you hungry for more?
Here's how it works...
had over 300 jewelry designers from all over the world sign-up this summer to
participate in her much anticipated event. She then paired us up into partners,
with each of us sending our partner a batch of BEAD SOUP.
My partner is Malin de Koning from Sweden & I couldn't have been more pleased
when my ingredients arrived! They were stunning, I LOVED the colors & textures
she included & knew from the moment I saw my soup, I'd be using the glorious
blue ceramic focal & frayed sari silk in my design!
This earthy necklace almost made it's self! Malin had included this fabulous
chunky, wooden button which I knew I HAD to use, so instead of using the clasp she
sent along with the soup, I made a large loop at one end of the sari silk & threaded the
other end through the button tying it off in back. I love the raw & rustic look it created.
I had so many amazing beads to choose from, one of my favorites being
these thick, rough, glass rondelles the color of Root Beer, I decided to
make two pairs of earrings to match my necklace.
All the elements of my design are from Malin's
generous soup ingredients, the only things I added were the keys
& the vintage rosary charm on the necklace.
I ADORE my SOUP & couldn't be more thrilled with the end result.
I want to THANK Malin for sending me such glorious elements,
& I want to THANK you, for taking the time to stop by & see what we have all
been up to this summer!
I hope you're all still HUNGRY, cuz there's 364 more SOUPS to visit!
I'm grabbing a Starbucks Venti Mocha Frappicino,
that should get me through the 1st 100 or so.
Then I'll have some Chai Tea, a Hazelnut Coffee,
an Espresso, a Latte, some Earl Grey....lol! ;)
