2nd Annual Bead Hoarders Blog Hop


Welcome to the 2nd Annual Bead Hoarders Blog Hop hosted by Lori Anderson.

I had great intentions for putting together lots of jewelry designs using my hoarded stash, but ran into an energy crisis.

So, I had this load of beads that i wanted to manipulate into something swell, yet they remain piled on my work desk.

bead hoarder 2014I did manage to make two simple designs and I really like how they turned out. Sweet and simple.

(Angel Whisperer at Etsy).

Bead Soup Blog Party #7 Reveal

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.

BSBP 2013 C

(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.

Memories and Thanks Blog Hop 2013

Memories 2013 E by The Beading Yogini

The past year has been filled with many personal and professional challenges.

Some tragic circumstances ( a suicide death of a remarkable friend and a manslaughter death of a co-worker.)

To say that it was a tough year would be an understatement.

I’ve learned over the years to just do my best to stay in the present moment,

and this has served me well. I tend to focus not on memories, but on what is happening in this moment.

I had no agenda or design plan for this blog hop and allowed my hands do the work for this one, rather than relying on my brain.

I decided to use some materials hanging around on my work bench:

wool yarn, bone bead, twin beads, leather strip, lampwork beads.

Technique: kumihimo braiding, macrame and hand sewing.

This is a modern, organic, primitive looking piece.

I thought about these words as I was putting it together…

Remember always that you are just a visitor here,

a traveler passing through.

Your stay is but short and the moment of your departure unknown.

None can live without toil and a craft that provides your needs is a blessing indeed.

Memories 2013 B by The Beading Yogini

But if you toil without rest, fatigue and weariness will overtake you,

and you will be denied the joy that comes from labor’s end.
Speak quietly and kindly and be not forward with either opinions or advice.

If you talk much, this will make you deaf to what others say,

and you should know that there are few so wise that they cannot learn from others.

Memories 2013 D by The Beading Yogini
Be near when help is needed, but far when praise and thanks are being offered.

Take small account of might, wealth and fame, for they soon pass and are forgotten.

Instead, nurture love within you and and strive to be a friend to all.

Truly, compassion is a balm for many wounds.
Treasure silence when you find it, and while being mindful of your duties, set time aside, to be alone with yourself.

Cast off pretense and self-deception and see yourself as you really are.

Despite all appearances, no one is really evil.

They are led astray by ignorance.

If you ponder this truth always you will offer more light, rather than blame and condemnation.
You, no less than all beings have Buddha Nature within.

Memories 2013 C by The Beading Yogini

Your essential Mind is pure.

Therefore, when defilements cause you to stumble and fall, let not remorse nor dark foreboding cast you down.

Be of good cheer and with this understanding, summon strength and walk on.

Faith is like a lamp and wisdom makes the flame burn bright.

Carry this lamp always and in good time the darkness will yield and you will abide in the Light.

6th Bead Soup Blog Party Hop

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.

(Photo credit for this pic Lori Anderson)

Bead Soup 1 photo by Lori Anderson

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.

BSBP6ButterBracelet4 by The Beading Yogini

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.

BSBP6PeaceTimeNecklace3 by The Beading Yogini

 BSBP6Peacetimenecklace1 by The Beading Yogini

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.

BSBP6RibbedSliderBracelet2 by The Beading Yogini

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.

BSBP6FlightNecklace3 by The Beading Yogini

BSBP6FlightNecklace1 by The Beading Yogini

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

BSBP6 seed bead cuff by the Beading Yogini

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.

5th Bead Soup Blog Party Hop

Because I’m sort of a visual gal myself, I’ll cut to the chase. But before I do, thanks to Lori Anderson (Pretty Things) for hosting the Bead Soup Blog Party Hop. My wonderful trading partner for this round, Morwyn Mullins (Another Country Beads). And, all you fabulous jewelry designers and artisans who make this fun party a success.

Get hoppin’ – “Visit Pretty Things for the complete list of participants”

Here’s a small sampling of some of the beads that Morwyn sent my way. Saved a few for a rainy day       (not sure when that’s gonna happen around these parts.)

5th Bead Soup Blog Party Partner

The current Bead Soup Blog Party  is now in full swing and I’ve had the luck of the draw to be partnered up for the swap with the talented Morwyn Mullins (Another Country Bead Works). Morwyn does some fancy seed beading and and her work has loads of creative energy. So without further delay, I’m spilling the beads… here’s a sample of what I sent to Morwyn … because a woman needs options, there’s a real assortment of materials. You can check out her blog post for better photos of the loot.

And here is what I received from Morwyn…

Seed Bead Soup from Morwyn MullinsSeeds beads … I’ve been wanting to work some neutrals, but color always seem to win out with me.

Bead Soup Terra CottaI’m really liking those little tiny bone skull beads and those terra cotta figure beads.

Picture Jasper from MorwynAnd, these great picture jasper pieces. They remind me so much of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, which happens to be about four miles from my home. It’s a shame that I so rarely get to enjoy hiking the canyon these days. Perfect days for it lately.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

Thanks for the materials Morwyn. And, thanks Lori Anderson (Pretty Things) for once again hosting this creative challenge.
