7th Bead Soup Blog Party!

Welcome to the Bead Soup Party!

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.

Don't forget to check out all the more than 200 beaders who will be revealing their beading today as part of the 7th Bead Soup Party. To see a complete list of all the participants, please hop over the Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Party blog. You can see all of the jewelry made by the some 500+ particiapnts of the 7th Bead Soup Party over here at Pinterest.

Thank you Lori for hosting this wonderful gathering of beaders, your hard work and dedication is much appreciated by us all!

Oh my, you did such a lovely job. I just love keishi pearls so of course I had to love the necklace. But the bracelet is so springy and then the earrings are just gorgeous. What a great job.

Wow Regina, your designs are just stunning - especially the pearl necklace with that amazing pendant and clasp! LOVE this! I think the bracelet and earrings would indeed make a nice Mother's Day set and those last earrings with the silk - wowsers - I really do love those!! Definitely a home run w/your soup -very, very well done!!

Those golden keishi pearls are perfect! with that pendant. I think the end result is a sumptuous rich necklace. Great job! Love the earrings too - I'm trying to include more fibre in my designs and I really like the sari silk with the lampwork. Btw, I love Gillian McMurray's beads too - they're fantastic!

You received beautiful soup and made good cooking with it! I especially like the golden necklace, it gives the pendant (I have been admiring it before...) a place of it`s worth. The earrings with silk are beautiful, too.

The earrings are my favorite! Love the ribbon with the lampwork beads. That looks like it was a cool but challenging soup to work with. You did a great job. It's fun to see one of Roberta's focals, as I don't think she is making them anymore. You showcased it very well!
