7th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal 3/30/13

Today is the day!! 
I get to reveal with I made with the beautiful Bead Soup that Secret Song Designs   sent me.  I was so excited when I received this package.  For me, when I took it out I was instantly struck with the thought that there was 2-3 different creations here.  I always try to use EVERYTHING from the Soup I am given – for me, that is 1/2 of the challenge.  So, here is the Soup I received…..
Then I was able to create, create, create!!! I came up with 
THREE 
different creations…. 
and here they are!!
First one I created was this beautiful set withe the handmade clay pieces I was sent.  There are the ‘swirls’ in the necklace and earrings, but there are also some round beads in the strap of the necklace.  This creations just came together on it’s own!
Then there was this more modern set.  I matched the triangle beads, flat rounds and Czech crystals with some Swarovski Crystals and Silver Plated findings.  Although very modern looking I really enjoy this creations!!
And then there was the beadwoven creation.  I was happily surprised when I received seed beads with my Soup.  As I pulled out my box of stones that I have saved for beadweaving one stone actually FELL out of the box.  And, it was perfect.  The colors matched and it was a must!  So, here is what I came up with….
Now, all three of these were made with the Soup mix, and everyone of them is very unique.  I was able to use just about everything in the Soup and I am VERY happy with all of the items I created. 
Now, it is off to check out all the other participates reveals.  Remember, you can visit them all…. and comment!!  We ALL have such great and individual talents – I can’t wait!!

    I love blue, and you sure know what to do with it. You used the soup in such a perfect way. When I looked at a close up of the beaded cab I almost started to drool. Beautiful work!
