My bead soup mix really had me in a bit of a quandary as it was so very different to what I usually work with. Looking through my bead stash I am inclined to work with pastel colours which tend to reflect my love of flowers in soft gentle shades.
I think I broke the rules a little as I have not used the clasp sent with my soup for the necklace, it was just too fine and dainty for my heavy pendant. I originally had planned to make a bracelet using this silver clasp but as I had used up all the beads and had two spare leaves left from the necklace, I had fun with the pretty green lucite flowers and made ear rings.
Still have the blue glass beads which would work well with the silver clasp but unfortunately I ran out of time. Something to complete soon hopefully.
My swap partner Cate van Alphen most probably found my soup offering somewhat different to what she usually works with and I am looking forward to viewing her creation. I think that this is one of the fun benefits of taking part in Bead Soup as it takes me away from my comfort zone and offers the opportunity to really create something quite different and unique.
Thank you once again to Lori Anderson of Pretty Things Blog for organising yet another Bead Soup Blog Swap.
Looking forward to visiting all the blogs to see what other participants have created.
There are lots of bead soups and I know there will be some wonderful things to see, click here for the links and start visiting. Do have fun and remember to leave a comment, I know I love to get feedback.
