8th Bead Soup Reveal

Hip Hip Hooray!!!  It's finally here!  I can't wait to see all of the loveliness that everyone has made, I am always absolutely gob smacked when I go on my blog hop everyone's talent makes me speechless.  I feel so honored that I am able to participate in these challenges.  Do you every feel like you have been invited to the party but you don't know if you should show up because you are going to pale by comparison.  I feel the love from this community because I have never had anything but support and I have met some wonderful friends in our wonderful community it is my own misgivings and insecurities that get in the way.  But this is such a great time, I have missed the last couple of years and I didn't want to be standing on the sidelines this year.

Our wonderful host Lori Anderson of Pretty Things paired me with a fellow Canadian, my first time and I was paired up with a kindred spirit, Alicia Marinache, All the Pretty Things.  Alicia sent me a wonderful soup, filled with beautiful goodies, 4 that were handcrafted by her very hands.  If you didn't see what I received I have added a picture so you can see before all the simmering took place.



 I had definite ideas about what I wanted to do with the large hammered copper leaf.  I am a lover of long necklaces and I knew that the leaf would be perfect for something long, originally I was thinking that I would stick with the pink and plum tones but something felt like it was missing, I was looking through some of my magazines for inspiration, and I came across a necklace that had some plum and pink mixed with turquoise, and I knew that it would be a perfect accompaniment for this necklace.  Of course working with copper always makes me happy happy!!!  This necklace has been knotted with Irish wax linen, and I handmade a tassel in teal to accent the turquoise.  I am not sure if I over did it by adding the Humblebeads Mum connector but I like the mix and I thought is complimented the colors that I used in this necklace.


My second necklace features the beautiful copper heart with the inland ruby stone, I wanted to go in a different direction with the heart and make the design delicate.  I created a necklace awhile back by crocheting several strands with seed beads and I thought having a mix of pinks, with pink crochet yarn would make the necklace look soft and delicate and add some dimension of color as well.  It was an interesting process to crochet 5 strands it took me three shanks of yarn and several failed attempts later to finally have 5 strands to create a necklace.  I almost thought I was only going to have one thing to show for the big reveal.  But I persevered and completed the 5 strands that I need and I reveal to you my finished necklace.


I have a bracelet in mind for my remaining beads that I would like to create to compliment my first necklace, I am hoping that I can get cracking on that this weekend if time allows.

I want to give a great big thank you to my wonderful partner Alicia, I loved my bead soup and I am very happy with my creations.  I hope that you had just as much fun with your soup as I did, and maybe when you travel to Calgary to visit your sister some day with can get together and chat about beads!!!

Lori Anderson thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting on this bead soup, I know that you have been struggling with your health and this couldn't have been easy to due under the circumstances and I appreciate all that you have done for me and our beading community!! May you feel some peace and your health take a turn for the better.

Happy hopping!!

  2. You made two absolutely lovely pieces, with such beautiful colors!

  3. Gorgeous pieces from a lovely Soup!

  4. Love the addition of the tassel in the first necklace. Great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Oh, my, Penny! First of all: I absolutely *LOVED* working with your soup. It get me so inspired and so in the mood, at one point I was trying to choose from 5 or 6 different ideas :)
    Second - I absolutely *LOVE* what you make! The leaf is softened by both the sweet pastel colours you have used (love that bright fuchsia linen) and the materials (the blue tassel is perfectly bringing everything together). And the crocheted strands for the heart, are just up my alley: that's how I started making jewelry, with beaded wire crochet :) Love everything, wonderful!

  6. Great soup to work with. You utilized it well.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Wow! This is just amazing. Great job!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  10. A fold formed leaf!!! How cool. And, you made beautiful use of it. Very nice job.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  12. Such beautiful necklaces. I would wear that first one every day! I love your handmade tassel against the copper leaf.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Lovely! Two beautiful pieces...love the colors and the designs!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love both of your necklaces - the tassel and connector on the first one complement the copper leaf so nicely!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Great soup! Love all the colors

    ReplyDelete
  16. What great necklaces! The first one just sings and adding to the focal just made it all the more unique.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think it was a great idea to add the blue tassel and pretty connector bead to the focal leaf because it just made the whole necklace pop. Great job on both creations!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Fun movement in each of these! Beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Two beautiful necklaces and I especially love the first one!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great addition of the aqua/teal, it rounds out the necklace in a very lovely way! Beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  21. How beautifully you combined such varied components for two awesome designs, Penny!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love both pieces! Too many ideas I'm going to have to try!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very nice necklaces, I really like the first one, such rich colors.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ooh...love the tri-focal you made. That giant leaf is to die for! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You're always welcome at my parties! :-)

    I'm really impressed with your work! I love how you used the heart clasp (that's so pretty!) and the massive amount of work that went into all those strands. I LOVE the collection of charms with the leaf!!! I like long necklaces, too!

    Thank you so much for joining us this year!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. wow! love that first necklace. I love all the drops on it. the colors are beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great color combo! Love the necklaces!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful pieces. Great instincts on the leaf necklace. Turquoise is the perfect accent to the copper and purples. Of course, I could be biased because turquoise is my favorite color for jewelry. Great work.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Beautiful necklaces, those crocheted strands are really unique. You have really showcased both of the metal focals nicely.

    ReplyDelete
  30. what a great colors in your soup to work with! I especially like your first necklace!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wonderful job. I particularly like the first necklace with the dangles at the front - that turquoise tassel is such a cute addition!

    ReplyDelete
  32. WOW! Love both pieces! Such great colors!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I believe that adding a bit of blue to a design never hurts anything! So I'm all for the blue you added in that first necklace. As well, the mum connector looks great too me. I really like the flow of the whole thing. And, whew. . .just in the nick of time for the second one huh? It turned out quite nice!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm glad you persevered with the crocheting - it has really made a stunning necklace. Pinks aren't my top colour but that necklace is so vibrant and the heart so very pretty it makes me want to eing,

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nice cooking, Penny! Love the first long necklace with it's tassel pendant!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Good job Penny. Both of your necklaces are beautiful. I like the turquoise with the oink and plum. Good color choice. I really like you crocheted necklace.I just tried seed bead crochet for a challenge I am in. I did not like the result so I took it apart. I think the problem was the cord I used. I will try it again but right now I have several challenge pieces to get done so it will have to wait.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love both pieces and would definitely wear them. I am planning a knotted necklace and am inspired.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your pieces are very pretty, well done!
