Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!

I am participating again in Lori Anderson’s  Bead Soup Blog Party.  My partner is Judy Riggs of Rigglettes.  She sent me the most wonderful “soup” a few weeks ago.  The soup sat on my work table for a while, during which time, I thought of the many things I could make.  And finally, I decided to make what I would like to wear. And here are the things I came up with:

First off, I love the lampwork beads she sent me. And I wanted the unique glass focal to be seen, so I made a lariat style necklace which clasps in the front. I clustered all the beads together to make one big drop:


I like to wear earrings, and I like them simple, so I hung the lampwork beads from Bali sterling earwires:BSBP2013_2

As bracelets go, I like them chunky. So, I strung the beads up, and doubled them:BSBP2013_3

At first, I didn’t know what to do with the nice handmade headpins. Then I thought, make a chain necklace! I think it came out nice:BSBP2013_4

And finally, the “quirky components” Judy sent, were made into a “groovy” belt for my Blythe girl, Pinkie – wish I had one life size 🙂BSBP2013_5
