Caution Hot Soup!


Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!
The Bead Soup Party  reveal is here!
The big reveal features the talents of 210 bloggers and jewelry designers.
What is a Bead Soup Blog Party?

Each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending the following:
~ A focal
~ A special clasp (not just a lobster claw)
~ Some coordinating spacers or beads

Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest, and choose to use the coordinating beads or not. I was paired with Jen of Jen Judd Rocks.

This is the amazing stash Jen sent me. It included an agate sterling clasp, lapis,wood pieces, silver spiral, pearls, lampwork,ceramic, agate, shell, citrine and Czech glass beads. 





Here's what I made!




I added some amethyst and beach glass beads some sterling spacers and sterling wire. I added one Jen's chunky pearls to the floral pendant.

 Because Jen sent me so much love, I also made another piece.





All information about the party (and future ones!) can be found by clicking here.

  14. Both your pieces are wonderful!! I really love that spiral and flower combo, really great!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well don't we make a good pair!!! I looooove the floral swirly centerpiece and the purples! Isn't it funny that we both made something with layered metal flowers and spiraled wire?

    I'm so thankful that we got a chance to meet this way and I know you'll continue to inspire my copper-working adventures!

    Jen

  16. Judy, oh my goodness. Now you know I'm a big fan of your work. What you made with your soup is to die for! I love the colors and composition in your first necklace... just love the large flower and wirework from Jen up front. Thanks for including a picture of it on the bust, we can really see how fantastic it would look when worn.
    And your second necklace...now that would be perfect to wear this summer! Isn't it funny, we both tied a piece of leather on our front dangle...we're kindred spirits. :-)

    ReplyDelete

  22. Two vastly different pieces! I am convinced that Miss Jen has the most diverse collection of beads... I have been the recipient of some of her lovelies as well! I especially love the first necklace... that floral focal is stunning with the wire winding out from it. Beautiful, Judy! You do not disappoint!
    Enjoy the day.
    Erin

  33. Oh My! I absolutely ADORE the first necklace with the pearls, the purples, and that big silver flower! I really like how you incorporated the different beads to make that necklace classy. The second set is a moody piece--something I would wear to keep me balanced when facing a difficult situation. I really love them both and your talents are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  34. They are both so gorgeous! I really love your style. :D The colors are cool in the first and earthy in the second, and you approached both in different ways, but both of the designs take full advantage of the materials and accentuate them beautifully. Wonderful work. :) I'm totally loving the placement of the flourish clasp in the first especially. <3

    ReplyDelete
