This is it the final reveal has arrived.
This is my first bead soup and it was such a valuable learning experience, i am so glad to have been able to join.
So my partner for the swap was Dee Elgie her blog is http://cherryobsidia.blogspot.co.uk
The first soup she sent of to me never arrived and i was so disappointed because it had lots of her own work in it.
But never the less Dee was great and sent me a replacement soup which included one of her gorgeous lamp work hearts.
I remade my first necklace several times but finally found a look i liked and would wear myself.
I used the heart focal, round rose quartz, rose quartz chunks and the diamonte clasp from my soup. Adding some crystals, rose quartz chips and white czech glass flowers as caps.
My second piece was a step outside my comfort area as i tried not to work completely symmetrically.
So using gunmetal chain i added a gorgeous focal bead from soup made by Pegasus added some dangles terminating with rose quartz,heart Swarovski bead and silvered crystal.
Along the chain i added a mix of rose quartz,pink cats eye, hematite from soup and little 6mm black bamboo beads.
The toggle is a standard one from my stash.
Lastly i really enjoyed using the tiny 6mm black bamboo beads and i had two more beautiful black lace lentils from Dee which were made by Alchemy lamp work. I decided two combine them and made so cute little earrings.
I have loved the challenge of the soup and have been constantly amazed by the host Lori who started this fabulous blog hop a few years ago this is her soup blog.
I hope you enjoyed my blog, forgive me any mistakes i am very new to the 'blogging' but am beginning to enjoy it very much.
Please take the time to visit the other blogs in the group, i am trying to get to everybody (slowly).
