Art Bead Scene Blog: The Missing Link Blog Book Tour and Interview

Hip Hooray , it's Bead Soup Day

we finally get to reveal our finished projects to the world, well at least to the rest of the Bead soup Group.
Nikki sent me some awesome beads and I had this preliminary idea of what I would make.(see photo below)
Ha , the best laid plans don't always work out the way we thought they would.
I fiddled and diddled and fiddled some more. 
BUT I have finished my pieces and I am quite pleased with myself (and them)
Here is a reminder of what I received
A gorgeous ceramic leaf focal, ceramic/raku  rounds, creamy fossil stone,  large smokey quartz, faceted amethyst,  and a hammered copper toggle clasp. My original idea was to use the layout you see here (above), I thought it made a lovely choker style necklace. That didn't work out so well.
Here are the finished results. This first piece used the focal leaf, the fossil stones, ceramic beads and two of the smokey quartz, the copper toggle clasp from Nikki, plus from some brown bumpy glass beads, purple mini cats-eye, metallic E-bead…

soups on- or not

it's less than a week till my reveal day for the Bead soup blog Hop and I'm still working on my pieces . I have a design in my head that is NOT coming to fruition as i want it to , so i may have to backtrack and choose an alternate route. We'll see what happens as i create in my studio today.

Bead Soup Blog Party

I recently joined Lori Anderson's  Bead Soup Blog Party. My soup partner is Nikki Banham -Hall from the UK. We will be sending each other a selection of beads with which to create a piece of jewellery. I can't wait to see what I receive from Nikki and I sure hope she likes what I'm sending her. Once she receives her package I can show a photo of what I sent her plus a pic of what she sent me.
Check back In a week or so, the postal system can be a tad slow.
