Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!

Bead Soup from Theresa
"Winding Road" Bracelet
Close-up view of "Winding Road"
"Chips, Marshmallows and Bubblegum" Bracelet
"Butterfly Garden" necklace
Finally, today is the day I can reveal my pieces for the blog party! The first picture is the Bead Soup I received from my partner Theresa Fosdick of the blog Thoughtful Notions. She sent cream wood beads, adventurine rondelles, a porcelain butterfly pendant, chip beads and some pink glass rounds, along with a sterling and green toggle clasp. I split up most of the beads and made a necklace, and 2 bracelets. I was really stumped with my mix. I have never worked with either chip beads or wood beads before. I found myself having a complete creative block! That is when I decided to make a few pieces and also add more beads to the mix. I hope you like what I have created!

K Hutchinson said...

WOW, What gorgeous pieces! The winding road bracelet is my favorite! Love it!

Thoughtfulhands said...

Love what you did Tracey,
I couldn't wait to see, everything turned out gorgeous. Of course I love what you did with the pendant but I think the pink and the chips are a really nice combo.

I should have listed what all your beads were but I was so excited to get them sent out I didn't even think of it. The pink ones are pink jade, I will have to let you know the artist of the porcelain butterfly (lost her name).

Hope you enjoyed,

RedGreenQueen said...

Nice. I love the wire bracelet. It has a kind of vintage feel with the colours I think.

la mar de bonita said...

Wonderful work! My favourite is also this winding road bracelet - I love these pastel colours!
Greetings, Michi

Niky Sayers said...

Great job, I think I like the winding road bracelet most, such lovely colors.

I am SO sorry for being late — today our internet provider decided to crash. My stress level is through the roof, to say the least! They’re still working on it, but it’s like dial-up.

REALLY nicely done! I love the butterfly and I like the Winding Road!

I hope you’ll participate again!

Love, Lori

Wo-ow, what a beautiful soup you were sent - the color combination is really special. If it hadn't been for the gorgeous silver clasp, I'd have reached for ivory wire or ribbon for this. I like what YOU did there~!

You are my last stop on this Bead Soup Party and I'm glad I made it this far. Your bracelets are beautiful and I imagine they look wonderful worn together. Your butterfly necklace is romantic, girly, and wonderful!

Pretty butterfly necklace. Thanks for sharing. Cherrie

Tracy said...

Always love butteflies..nice pieces.

beautifullybrokenme said...

What a fabulous soup you have cooked up! Butterflies are my favorites, and I love the asymmetrical design of your necklace. I really like the wire work on the winding road bracelet, and the marshmallow & bubblegum (great name!) bracelet is lovely - beautiful job! :)

Melissa said...

Those pieces turned out great. I like the first bracelet a lot, but it is hard to choose a favorite. You have a great eye!


Cris Peacock said...

Glad you got over your creative block so we could see these lovely pieces you created! Love them all!

Maneki said...

Beautiful jewellery, not least the butterfly necklace. I like the black leaves you added. Not just the colour but also something in their shape and pattern echoes the pendant so well. Great job!

I know what you mean about chips. I find them difficult too. But every once in while I think of something that would be fun to do with chips. So I buy a few more in the right colours. Then I'm stuck with even more chips I don't know what to do with... *lol*

CraftyHope said...

All three of your pieces are really wonderful. However, I really like the Winding Road Bracelet the best. The wirework you've done on it definitely gives it a special touch. Fabulous work!

Anonymous said...

I love all the wire work in the Winding Road bracelet. It looks great!

OhAllisonBeading said...

As much as I liked the butterfly pendant when you showed your soup, I think the 1st bracelet is my favorite. Very nice pieces! :)
