Bead Soup Blog Hop


Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!


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.


Here's what I made!

Great job! I especially like the second necklace - the chunky gemstones look so yummy together.

Round Rabbit said...

You had some gorgeous pieces to work with! Great job! :)

Clayworks by Lisa Boucher said...

So awesome! Very nice work putting those beauties together. Great job with the photography as well.

Dana said...

I love how you can use the soldered pendant both ways for different looks. Great job and I'm glad you liked the stash. I can't wait till you see what I did with yours.

Beadroe said...

Very nice combinations. Both necklaces are very pretty.

runningonink said...

These piece are wonderful! I love the chunky beads with the focus pieces! AWESOME!

Anna Lear said...

These are both very pretty necklaces!! They have a casual-classy southwestern feel to them without being "too much." I especially like the colors you used and how you put them together. (And I understand your blogger issues; it took me almost an hour to get my post up because of the editor snags...)

Charlene said...

Just lovely, I like the touch of the smaller chain woven into the beads.

Dee said...

wonderful job...all the pieces are beautifu!

EmandaJ said...

Janea, Dont' you just hate it when Blogger goes haywire?!

Really lovely work on your soup -- reversible pendants -- I seem to be seeing a lot of convertible or reversible (or other ways to wear) the necklaces in this blog hop. Coincidence? mmm maybe, or could it be some sort of beady magic?

I decided to start at the bottom of the list (I'm in the middle at #95). I hope you get a really good response from the swap/hop -- So much fun!

Hi Janea! I'm so sorry you've had problems with your blog...it is so frustrating! When I did my BSBP post, my computer loaded everything as slow as molasses. Now grantid it was very late, but I actually fell asleep waiting for an upload!
Your necklaces are stunning - wow, not one but two! You must be so proud of your designs...would wear these pride!

Pretty Things said...

LOVE the pendants (I sure wish I could solder) and you really made them sing. You should be proud!

CraftyHope said...

You used some color combinations I would have never considered - very cool!
As well, I LOVE your blog name, organized chaos - that's my life too ;)

So many pretty things you made! Wonderful work on these. :D I love how most of them have a very spring feel. I can't wait 'til the flowers come up! ^__^ I'm a little partial to that fairy necklace, though. It's so dreamy and lovely. Nice job!
