Good morning (or afternoon/evening!)
It’s time for the first reveal of Bead Soup Blog Party #6 hosted by Lori Anderson, Blogger Extraordinaire.
ETA: I forgot I was going to do a giveaway!!! Leave a comment and I’ll do a drawing for a free sample pack of my new Color Me This patinas (not yet released for sale, but very soon!). 6 popular custom blended colors in “try me” sizes. Drawing to be held August 4th.
I was paired with Nancy Peterson and she sent me this lovely mix of soup ingredients. Be sure to stop by her blog and see what she made with the ingredients I sent her.
From that I made a pendant with a silk ribbon necklace. Here’s a full shot of the necklace and pendant. I used the interesting ceramic spiral focal that Nancy sent and added dangles using the copper open weave beads, turquoise chips and black faceted beads. On top of that I used some 1.25″ etched, colorized disks that I made (from Metal Me This) and thought they coordinated well. Instead of hiding the cool key clasp that Nancy sent in the back, I used it as an extension to the focal pendant and wrapped the silk ribbon through it. I like the effect of a chunky pendant.
Here are some close ups of the pendant portion.
There are about 150 blogs to visit this round, so get some coffee, or a glass of wine and head over to Lori’s site where the links are all set up for you. Click away. I can’t wait to see all the Bead Soup goodness out there. And remember to come back two more times for the other reveals in this massive 400 person Bead Soup Blog Party. Lori will have all the details on her blog.
PS…here’s a teaser for what’s coming from me in the next week or so…”Color Me This”…my custom blended metal patinas in sample packs. More to come…
