Bead soup hoarders edition reveal

Welcome to my reveal.


Firstly a huge thank you to Lori Anderson for going all out and getting us all back together swapping.
  
I didn't really get to show you the wonderful beads my swap partner Elaine Robitaille sent me,so here they are. 
Some beautiful polymer clay pieces from Elaine! A hoarded bead from Michaela Pabeschit, pretty glass flowers from Fran Davis Dragonfire Studio, lamp work from Cheryl Harris




 

The first bead I used was a pretty lamp work lentil bead as my focal and sat for a while pondering what i should do with it.
Then whilst going through my stash of beads i came across some pretty pink spacers which complimented the pink on the lentil. 
Add to those some lovely tiny agate and chain along with a previous swap item a lovely leather feather from (Rachel Mallis @Mint Monarch)

And i finished one necklace:



Next i decided to use the lovely vibrant flower lamp work and turned them into some simple earrings.






I made a flat headed silver pin to fit through the centre of the flower so i could hang them as simple earrings.
I have started other pieces but not completed them so feel free to pop back or visit my face book to see them soon.  https://www.facebook.com/pale.mooncreationUK/

  1. Those earrings are sweet! I am not really for strong colours but I like those.
    I think you have done justice to the focal piece with the necklace you made. It is one of those show off necklaces that I am pretty sure people will compliment you for.

  7. Your necklace really is a beauty! The leather feather dangle, and the pink beads are just perfect. I also love the earrings. The flowers are so bright and cheerful, perfect for standing alone in simplicity. Simple is often hardest. You received quite the bounty of beads. I'm looking forward to coming back and seeing more creations.
