Bead Soup Blog Party Bead Hoarders Edition 2017

And Now The Sequel........... 



Below is the first post about Lori's BSBP and what I sent my partner and what my partner, Laurie Vyselaar sent me. Below all that....is what I made with the goodies I got.



Hello all, it is time for one of Miss Lori's Bead Soup Blog Party's. We are so glad that she has been able to do this and that her awesome recovery will continue. We so missed her!

And if you have wondered where I have been, well I am a tax preparer, so until April 18 I will be somewhat scarce but I will be beading!!!!!

     So for this soup party I was matched with the talented Laurie Vyselaar. She is just a hop skip and jump south of me in Fl!

     First: what I sent her!  
                   

NOW for what she sent me! And I can't wait to get working on them!

                    

    I see a "Garden Party". I love Dry Gulch beads and her designs!!! And those cute little lampwork beads from Marie Sawyer....I am keeping them for me! I see some cute earrings in the making with them.  Then that awesome Man on the Moon Pendant that Lauri made. Can't wait to get to that...I can see it with seed beads....
     I am sure I won't get all done by the dead line but I will have the "Garden Party" ready!

Well, I can tell you "Garden Party" didn't happen. After I got all the beads together I wanted to use, they refused to play nice...So they just sat on my work table for about a week....with me staring at them. So then I started going through my stash thinking about what I might have that would work, but nothing garden party popped up....sigh...but I found some other beads that complimented the hand painted piece by Dry Gulch and the green beads and the blueish green crystals. And this is what I came up with:


  


I really love how purple and the golden green beads really work with the pendant! You cant really see it well in the picture, but there is purple in the pendant.

 And  for the other beads that didn't want to play nice I made earrings out of them....and they look really good! Those were the flowers for my "garden party". Oh well, I like them better this way!




As for those super cute glass birds...here is what I did. Though the picture doesn't show the true color. The beads are grey and white.



Then...that marvelous man in the moon pendant, I wanted to do something really neat, And I did get started, making a spiral necklace for it,  but I ran out of the dark grey pearls, so until I get more it will have to wait. But for the pendant it's self, I have some black and white beads and crystal beads that I am going to bead around with. Hopefully I will get it finished soon, I have been so busy with tax season...no time to bead.....


Here is a close up of the beads so you can see the blue in the middle.



For more beauties hope over to Lori's Pretty Things Bead Soup Party.

Until next time...which is April 8th..

Keep on beading!

  6. Really well done! I can relate to the lack of time during tax season! I hope things slow down for you soon! You did great with the time you had. The earrings are sweet, and the necklace is really creative. And the heart necklace is going to be beautiful.

  11. Sure looks like a garden party to me! I love the necklace and flower earrings. I like the idea of combining the different coloured Czech flower beads. The pearl and glass bird earrings are lovely...quite delicate. You're going in the right direction with the man in the moon pendant. I'm looking forward to seeing the completed project!

  23. Perhaps you just needed to sit with them for a while. You were successful in the end because the necklace is lovely. I really like the Czech glass flower earrings as well. They sing spring.
