I just could not wait to show off what I have made with glorious beads that my Bead Soup partner Laura, the Bead Therapist sent me, what a gorgeous and at the same time challenging collection it was.
Here is what I received...
|These rectangular pendants had me thinking...|
|These beads had me pondering...|
March and April were very busy months, a bout of the flu, Spring Break visitors from the North, and tax preparation time, so I was grateful for all the additional time given for this final reveal.
And here is what I made...
The gorgeous turquoise and gold pendant made by Roberta Warshaw and the golden leaf toggle clasp made by Pajego Art House were combined with two strands of golden Keishi pearls to create this necklace. I love how it turned out, do you?
The rondelles of light green rutillated Quartz were made into a Spring flower bracelet by combining them with Fluorite carved flowers, green and lilac dyed freshwater pearls and I used the square love toggle I received from Laura. Wouldn't this be perfect for Mother's Day?
The lampwork beads Laura sent me along with some green silk and a pair of gorgeous light-weight earrings... what do you think?
And the best part is that I still have some beads that I can play with, so my party is not quite yet over. Please hop on over tp Laura's blog to see what she made with the beads I sent her to play with.
