Bead Soup Blog Party #7 Reveal

Posted by on March 30, 2013

Time for the first reveal at the Bead Soup Blog Party # 7.

First off, I was thrilled with all the beads, charms and bits that my partner Debra Behrends (Hopeful Journeys) shared with me.

So much good stuff that I could not fit everything into my limited design time.

(The raw materials.)

Next up, I’d like to thank Lori Anderson (Pretty Things) for hosting this event and at the same time, to thank all the party goers who make this such a blog blast. Reserve some time for blog hopping. It’s a treat. Participants links are here.

A few words about my design process. Mostly I just sit down and make stuff. Not much for sketching, or grand design planning. I trust that the piece will come into being and to be what it needs to be. And, that it will appeal to someone, somewhere.

  10. Alenka

    Beautiful pieces! It’s very hard to pick one favourite. It seems the first one inspires me most, even if I don’t wear blue very often.

  11. Leah

    I ADORE that soup and love what you’ve made. That first necklace really does it for me!

  12. Heather

    Love that huge batch of soup – what a creative gift! First let me say your photos are looking so fab, your designs are amazing and I’m always inspired by what you create. I love the texture of the macrame in the first piece with just the smallest touch of fiber that adds so much to the focals. The other three necklaces are perfectly designed and look like they just jumped off the pages of a beading publication. I’m off to check out more of your blog, I haven’t been here in a while!!!

  13. Lori Anderson

    OMG. I am in love with the necklace with the huge green lampwork bead and your first piece, too! Really, anything you make is amazing. You’re an amazing designer I’m proud to call a friend!

    i am loving what you did with the necklaces. you had such great color palates to work with

  25. Bobbie Rafferty

    Of course, they’re all beautiful, as is everything that comes off of your design table. But I particularly like the mix of materials on either side of the first necklace, and the last necklace grabs me because I’m a ridiculous sucker for purple. Is that a clasp you used as the pendant on the final one? Very cool!

  26. Ambra

    Wow! You received a very generous soup and did great things with it! I particularly love the desing of the neckalce with the butterflies. It’s amazing!

    Dear Cece, you are amazing! I love all your pieces (of course), but the first necklace left me breathless. I adore it!

  28. Lea Avroch

    WOW!…on both the beautiful soup & your creations! Love them all, but I particularly like the simplicity of the 1st design with the wire wrapped daisies. So unique & pretty.

  29. bailaora

    fanatastic floral elements in the first necklace and great use of the focal, congratulations!
