Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal! – March 3rd 2012

This is the 5th Bead Soup Blog Party hosted by Lori Anderson and I am proud to be a part of it once again!

My Bead Soup partner is Eleanor Burian-Mohr:

Here is the wonderful soup she sent me – Thanks again Eleanor!

I created two necklaces and two pairs of earrings with my soup. I wanted to create more but ran out of time.

“Ocean View”

For this necklace, I used the two Thai Karen Hill Tribe silver crabs, beach glass (gathered from the shores of Lake Erie), and some of the pressed glass shells.

I included seed beads, turquoise fresh water pearls, recycled glass beads, a sterling silver clasp, chain, and findings from my own stash.

“I wish I wish I wish I were a fish”

For this necklace I decided to use the Thai Karen Hill Tribe silver seashell clasp as a connector instead of a clasp.  I also incorporated beach glass,  pressed glass shells, Lampwork glass beads from Katerina of MayaHoney, fresh water pearls, and the adorable lampwork glass fish by Denise Shipley.

From my own stash, I used seedbeads, sterling silver rounds and a sterling silver lobster clasp.

“Blue Pearl”

“Open Sea”

All the findings in these designs are sterling silver. I had a small amount in my personal stash but also lucked out because Hobby Lobby had sterling silver on sale for 50% off last week!

This was my first time to ever use any Hill Tribe silver – it has always been on my wish list so I was very excited for the opportunity!

I did not get the chance to use the little sea shells but I have an idea of how I will use them. If my idea is successful, I will share it in a future post.

I also did not use the Swarovski Crystal Rivolis but I am so happy to have them and know that they have lots of wonderful possibilities!
