BEAD SOUP PARTY - THE THIRD TIME AROUND!

WELCOME 
To the 3rd BEAD SOUP BLOG PARTY

So, what is a Bead Soup Blog Party, you ask? 
Each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer by our hostess, Lori Anderson and tasked with  sending their chosen partner:
  • A Focal
  • A Special Clasp (and not the ordinary lobster clasp)
  • And some coordinating beads.  Using the focal and the clasp is mandatory, but everything else could be either from the beads sent to you or from your own stash.
Here is what I received from Suzette, my Bead Soup Blog Partner:


Such wholesome ingredients!

And here is what I made:



Unchain My Heart!


I used the brass heart, chain and the red velvet Quartz beads to create the front and focus of the necklace. Stepping outside my usual 'stringing' box, I wire-wrapped faceted Ocean Jasper beads, and some length of brass chain to complete the necklace. I am very happy with the results, are you? 


After the First Bead Soup Blog Party, I donated the piece I made to a Juvenile Diabetes Fund Raiser at my work place. This year I will be doing the same, 'Unchain My Heart' will be used to raise funds to fight the battle against Juvenile Diabetes.


Then with the striking Vintaj attic windows I made earrings..... a giveaway at this 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!


Sunshine on My Shoulder!

I could picture sunlight streaming into the attic through the window and I tried to create that effect with some champagne colored AB crystals. This pair of earrings will be given away to one lucky partygoer, drawn randomly from those who leave comments on this blog posting. The winner will be drawn on the night of the 4th of March. I figure it might take a week for some of us to make the rounds of some 200 blogs.  I have decided to extend the deadline for my giveaway as I know some of us are still making our way around the blogs. I will draw the winning random number, next Friday March 11th. The winner to be announced on Saturday March 12th.


I would love to hear what you think?


And now come see what the rest of the party-goers have made! Happy Blog Hopping!

jamberry_song said...

I love your designs! So clean and elegant. :D The color combination in the necklace is particularly wonderful. You designed it beautifully to show off every aspect of the beads' and focal's character. The earrings are my favorite, though. Mmm, antiqued brass filigree and crystal... you can't go wrong! ;) Beautiful work!

Joanna Matuszczyk said...

OMG! This is stunning idea to chain a heart. And red, green and brass goes so well together. One of my favourite creations!

Shaiha said...

You did a wonderful job of stepping outside of your box. That necklace is gorgeous!

Rebecca said...

Wow! I LOVE this! The chain and beaded chain you have created is just gorgeous. Beautiful ingredients - wholesome and delicious!

GraceC said...

Hi Regina, You just left a comment on my piece, so I came to comment on yours. First, fabulous piece. The chain and heart is such a clever idea. Second, you should do more sire wrapping; you are clearly really good at it. I couldn't string if you paid me and ONLY wire wrap, and I think your work is better than most wrappers. Really. Very nice job.

Beth said...

Regina I love this necklace. But what captured my attention was the way you placed the colors on the necklace almost as of they are fading into another color as they go up the necklace.Red going into green into blue into frosty lt.blue.
Great Bead soup.

roseworksjewelry said...

I love that! And you came up with the perfect name :)

Deb said...

Your necklace is gorgeous and how lovely that it will be used for a good cause. You have done a fabulous job with your bead soup.

Marian Hertzog said...

Very pretty! Love the heart in the chain!

Andrew Thornton said...

Really stunning! You did a wonderful job! I'm particularly drawn to your pieces you made for this challenge. I love me some wire-wrapping and you represented, for sure! Nicely done! You did most excellent!

Fire Phoenix said...

Love it, the red and the brass go well together

maneki said...

Those are just lovely! I really like both your design and your colour combos. Beautiful!

Cindy said...

I just love your necklace...thought so the moment I saw it! I love the deep color of the red mixed with the metal and layers made with the chain. I agree with Marcie - this would be a great contender for the Bead Star compeition in the "Hearts" category!

French Elegant Jewelry said...

Love your designs that was some awsome soup.

Hopemore Studio said...

I must have missed this in the hop - I LOVE it! That necklace is sensational! I have a ton of those red velvet beads, and as much as I love them, I can't seem to figure out how to use them.

Beautiful!

Patsy Evins said...

Wonderful necklace! Love how you designed it! The dangles on the heart are perfect! Wonderful, warm, rich colors!
