The Bead Soup Party reveal is today.
Many thanks to Lori Anderson of Pretty Things http://lorianderson.blogspot.com/ for hatching this idea and the work it took to put it all together. I was partnered with Marianna of>http://www.stargirlshop.blogspot.com/ who sent a surprise packet for my bead soup mix.
There was a fabulous lampwork glass focal and charming floral antiqued brass toggle clasp along with a nice assortment of coordinating beads .
I reworked this piece several times ..there were so many nice options.
I made a necklace with her focal on the side balancing the beautiful clasp,
added a few ceramic beads that came out of the kiln this week, which really took the design in a different direction.
There were some interesting flower spacers , i used one to cap a plum glass rondelle..
I decided to use some brown leather round cording at the back to keep the clasp at the side and prevent the necklace from sliding around. Also handforged 2 brass links for the leather connection.
This necklace will look great with sweaters for this winter and then it will wear great withT-shirts and jeans this summer..
I am wearing this today..love it .
