Bead Soup Pieces

I participated in my first bead swap event a while back.  Part of the bead swap agreement was to make some pieces out of what was received and post them; so here are the results.  Note; there will be several more pieces made from Jasvanti's package; she sent so many beautiful beads and pendants.  I've finished a necklace/earring set and a necklace.  I'm posting because today is the reveal day and I don't want to miss it.  I will post the earrings that go with the second necklace as soon as I have them finished (hopefully later tonight or tomorrow).

Jasvanti, I hope you like what I made; what you sent offered so many possibilities.  Thank you again.  More to come.

Owls are popular and this one is super cute.



Beautiful pink stone to anchor the beads and clasp.

  6. I do love owls and that set is super cute! As well, I'm not often a fan of pale pink, but the combination of colors you selected for that piece is so unique and original that I can't help but really like it too! Nice job :)

  7. Nice use of the owl. The darker firepolished beads in the stringing relate back to the owl's eyes very nicely. Love the wire wrapping on the pink stone and the colors on the strand are pastel perfection :-)

The owl focal is gorgeous...I am a bit partial to owls myself. I totally admire you artistry. You did a brilliant job of cooking up that soup to perfection... ty for sharing with us all bye now gotta get back to hopping

  26. I just saw your partner's pieces and wondered if you'd be willing to share where you found her clasp and focal? Did you make 'em? I'm DYING! =)

    AND I love your pink piece - it's adorable and the wire wrapping is fantastic! =) I ended up doing some wire flowers too...great minds, think alike! =)

    1. Linda, I would gladly tell you where if I could remember. I bought them a while back because I thought the focal bead was unique and pretty and I liked the matching pieces. Never figured out just what to do with them so I passed that job to her. She did great. Think I was right about the unique, haven't seen another one like it, sorry. Thanks for the nice review, I like the "great minds" part. :)

  33. Beautiful work! The owl necklace is more dynamic, the owl is like "look at me, am I not gorgeous" :) I like the tender and romantic color combo and the wirework on the focal in the second necklace!
