Bead Soup Blog Party REVEAL!!



Well today is the big reveal…
this is the day of the Bead Soup Blog Hop organized by Lori Anderson

There are 362 participants from 21 countries (and 5 continents)!!




THANK YOU LORI ANDERSON
 FOR ORGANIZING AND HOSTING THE BEST BEAD SOUP PARTY!!!









THIS WAS MY BEAD SOUP


FROM CHRISTINA MILES















My piece is called "Strands of Sunlight in the Coral Sea"!






Christina sent me this beautiful fish as my focal bead so I created an asymmetrical design around it. I used her amber and turquoise beads along with the copper disks and spacers. The fish copper toggle clasp fits in nicely with my design. I added some 6mm blue green magnesite beads, copper , and  multi-colored seed beads. The necklace measures 20" in length and can be worn with the fish focal swimming up stream.

  12. I am SO sorry for being late — today our internet provider decided to crash. My stress level is through the roof, to say the least! They’re still working on it, but it’s like dial-up.

    I LOVE that fish bead, and really like what you did with it.

    I hope you’ll participate again!

    Love, Lori

  47. that's adorable! I like the fish swimming downward better, showing all the other colors. with him swimming up, the colors are all hidden and all you have is the turquoise.

    ReplyDelete

  51. Oh, how neat.... a fish swimming upstream or downstream. That's such a clever idea. It's amazing how such a small detail can change the entire feel of the necklace. I love the fish tail clasp.... perfect choice for the fish focal.
