7th Bead Soup Blog Party, Yipppeee!


Howdy Sweet Friends & Sistah Soupers...
Happy Bead Soup Party Day to y'all!

Yes, today is the 3rd Reveal date for our lovely hostess,

Throwing this party is a GINORMOUS undertaking, especially
with over 500 participants this year. I just want to start off by
thanking Lori for coming up with this idea & for all her
hard work in getting us organized & ready to
PARTY!!!


My partner this year is the very talented Miss Tina Noonan
of Winged Imp Designs & Blog. She sent me a fabulous soup,
filled with so many fun things it was hard to choose what to make.
But right from the get go, a couple ingredients had me at HELLO,
like the wonderful grouping above! LOVE the color in these beads.


My eye was also caught by the Root Beer colored, vintage
Lucite triangular focal piece & portion of a drawer pull. To
see the entire SOUP sent to me by Tina, you can check out
my post HERE!


I started with the focal & since I've been kinda obsessed with sari silk
& vintage pearl, bird's nests lately, {I add them to EVERYTHING}
I knew I had to throw one on to this piece too.


I then drilled a couple of extra holes in the Lucite to attach
a soldered piece I made with beveled glass called 'Sisters'.


After mixing some of her beads, with some of my
beads, I wire wrapped the chain & VIOLA...


a beautiful necklace & earrings that I really do LOVE!
In fact, I'm wearing it out tonight for it's debut.


Thanks so much for stopping by to say hi
& here are the other participants of the 3rd Reveal Date...
I know they would LOVE for you to take a look at what
they have been working hard on too!! :)))

Check HERE for the other talented participants!!!
Thanks again friends & have a FABULOUS Weekend!!!

XOXO

Love, love, loving this. I think the sari silk birds nest idea is just divine and I love the vintagey (not sure that is a word) photo that you dangled from your focal. I really need to start looking for some of those pieces as I have a fondness for them and have yet figured out how to do them.
