BeAd SoUp BlOg HoP

Today's the day to reveal what we with our bead soup. Here was what my partner Terri sent me:





And here is what I came up with...








The stamped clay focal was one that I had made a while ago but the colors matched with the beads perfectly. The circle of pearls and the pearls on the drop are from vintage earrings and a vintage necklace that I salvaged parts from.




I kept the earrings simple but they can go from elegant with a black dress or perfect with a sweater and jeans.



The bracelet worked out great and I plan on making more with the beads I still have left so I can layer them. I love wearing multiple bracelets!









I think the pearls, beads, lace and chain all came together awesome, even my husband loves this piece! It was definitely a challenge for me to design and execute this! Thank you Lori for this challenge and wonderful blog party! I hope to be able to play in the next one! You can visit Lori and all of the other blog party participants by visiting Pretty Things

Your Bead Soup pieces are just wonderful!!

Christine Altmiller said...

so very very pretty!!!

Terri said...

Hope you are enjoying the party!
Wow! Such Lovely pieces, Deana. What a great focal you have made and I like how you re-purposed the vintage salvaged parts from other pieces of jewelry. Your designs come together so nicely. The touch of lace is inspiring. I ended up using the tear drops shaped beads you sent me for earrings too.
Just a slight tweak to my original comment. You know why. :)

I just love what you've made with the soup you received. Gorgeous colours, too. ;-)

Sandra said...

Very nice. I love the overall pearly look and that you incorporated vintage items into the design - lace even - yet used something as modern as polyclay with it.

Regina said...

Love the designs, great job. My favorite are the earrings. As you say, wear it with anything and so pretty!

KayzKreationz said...

Very nice. The little pearl ring that you hung the focal from is great. And I like the way you looped your beads through it to hang. My favorite is the bracelet though. I really like the little dangles on it.

Lori's Glassworks said...

Wonderful! You have created two terrific pieces of wearable art. I like your use of color and texture for the necklace. Thank you for sharing your artistic process along the way. Cheers!

Birgit said...

Hi there,

Thanks to Anna’s great Practical Magic blog party website I know that you are taking part in the event. I have pondered how to participate and thought it would be neat to post anonymously people’s thoughts and/or secrets regarding the movie. Sites which inspired me are:

Post Secret
Walt Disney Confessions

Those thoughts or secrets could e.g. be “I have already watched the movie 1,000 times,” “I wish I had a sister like Gilly,” “The aunts’ house is my dream house,” “I have dreamt about Jimmy” etc. Anything which comes to your mind when you think of “Practical Magic.”

If you feel like helping me out, be sure to send me your thought/secret as soon as possible at swappinghowdies@yahoo.de. Of course, I handle each “confession” anonymously. And – please nothing x-rated!

Greetings from Germany,
Birgit

Melissa said...

Now those turned out great. I like the layered look when all together. Beautiful!

maneki said...

Very nice jewellery set! Like the mix of bead, lace and chain. Great job!

CraftyHope said...

I'm having a hard time seeing what you started out with, but your results are definitely romantic in nature.
I see that you used a focal that you had in clay. What was the focal you received from your partner and how did you use it? Somehow I missed that. . . Otherwise, you did a really nice job.
