6th Bead Soup Blog Party Hop

Written By: admin - Aug• 25•12

It’s been a great party so far and now it’s the 3rd Reveal for the Bead Soup Blog Party Hop.

My partner has been very busy, hosting and creating and let’s give her some applause for taking on this task… you go Lori Anderson!!! (Pretty Things)

I received the best soup ingredients to use to stir up some jewelry designs. In my usual fashion, I like to mix n match, and make loads of different jewelry pieces.

So here is my 1st piece of jewelry.

BSBP6#2DaisyChain108 by The Beading Yogini

Daisy Chain 108 is a micro macrame and chain bracelet. Soup ingredients used:

the purple crystals, pietersite bead and bronze jumprings. I added african trade beads, C-Lon cord, copper center piece, copper chain, and a lobster claw clasp. It wears well and fits me perfectly. The temperature was 108 degrees on the afternoon I cooked this bracelet up.

Next up … those square beads

The only items that threw me for a moment were the square shaped light butter colored beads. Eventually my creative muse surfaced a design for those and I think it is a keeper. I added those square beads to a repurposed bracelet medallion. The colors are a perfect match, and I found an old copper colored cuff to mount the macrame bracelet, in keeping with the copper theme. Plus, I got to incorporate some of those little tiny twin beads I’ve been wanting to play with.

This next copper necklace is a departure from my macrame pieces.

Although I did manage to throw a wee bit of fabric into the design.

It features a peace pendant charm.

It can be worn lariat style as well. Soup ingredients used on the copper necklace: textured copper ring connector, copper clasp, spotted lampwork glass bead and the small woven copper connectors.

BSBP6PeaceTimeNecklace2 by The Beading Yogini

Here’s what became of the sweet little round, etched ribbed lampwork bead, a few of the shell beads, the copper bead caps, the purple/green crystals, the purple cord, the white cord… I added flowers shaped amber crystal beads and a few small etched lampwork beads. A cute little macrame, slide closure bracelet.

I think I’m keeping the next piece for myself. Those Marsha Neal ceramic pieces ended up as a necklace and earrings.

My favorite color too.

BSBP6Breathe1Necklace by The Beading Yogini

If you follow along at all, you know how I often like to make the back of the piece as wearable as the front.

So goes for this necklace.

I used a Tim Holtz metal piece for the flip side of the pendant.

I’m also in love with that little Tierra Cast Buddha head bead.

BSBP6BreatheNecklace2 by The Beading Yogini

What became of those Czech glass purple striped lentil dangle beads?

A little pair of earrings and macrame necklace, using one of those vintage cloisonne beads for the focal point.

BSBP6FlightNecklace1 by The Beading Yogini

This seed embroidered cuff bracelet features a beautiful moon faced clay bead by Birgitta Lejonklou as the centerpiece.

I added Lori’s pietersite beads and the small shell beads are going in this design too. Oh, and lots of tiny seed beads and thread.

Time and life sort of became very busy for me, so watch for the completed design on this at a later date.

And here’s a gallery page of photos with a few different views of all of the designs.

    All your pieces look great! I am especially drawn to the necklace with the peace sign because when you show it as a lariat, it looks like it’s saying “time for peace” which is such a wonderful message. The cuff is really neat too.

  39. Alice says:

    So many beautiful pieces! You put so much thought into each piece (front and back). I’m really loving the copper theme, and how just a bit of fiber can add so much depth. Nice job!!!!!

  40. CraftyHope says:

    You really got a ton made from your soup and it’s ALL awesome! Your macrame skills always amaze me. I cannot wait to see what becomes of that last piece. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for it!

    I love the soup you received from Lori and all you pieces are so creative and beautiful..great job

  42. Kumi Fisher says:

    Really love what you made! So many beautiful creations!

  43. Bobbie Rafferty says:

    Your work is some that I always look forward to seeing — without fail, your creations make me stop and say “holy cow”. Usually out loud. And that is why I have to view your work away from the office so that my outbursts don’t worry my colleagues…

    Everything is just gorgeous. And I can’t wait to see the embroidered cuff when it’s done!

  44. Wow, what a lovely collection of pieces! I think they are all wonderful, but that sweet little bracelet with the lampwork bead and the crystals really appeals!

  45. Just brilliant. I love and want it all, lol. 😉
