Bead Soup Reveal

First off a big Thank You to Lori Anderson for hosting the bead swap! And to my partner Elisabeth for sending me a great bead soup! I admit I went out of the box on the design of this necklace...usually I don't combine so many elements but I felt this soup called for a mixed design.

I have loved looking at everyone else's designs it has amazed me to see such beautiful creations using so many mediums and elements!

So here is mine....

First my soup...


The focal piece


The earrings and another view of the dress


Bigger view of the necklace


I wanted the clasp to be a focal too so I moved it toward the front


The full view

Now...go check out the other reveals today too!

love how you worked the focal..very creative

Kella said...

There are so many elements of your design that I like and I am inspired by. But the one i'll mention is the use of the cording in the holes of the focal, that is pure genius.

Wow, Love the length, the copper and turquoise together, the way you spread out the beads on the cord and those little pointy dangle beads are cool!! Nice job.

I love the copper and turquoise combination--it's earthy and sophisticated at the same time. I also like how you used the clasp p front. The other beads add a charming contrast! Great job!
