Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!

My partner, Raida Disbrow sent me lovely glass beads in one of my favorite combinations, black and aqua blue. I don't usually use ribbon so having it in my package of goodies was a nice change of pace for me.

First, you can look at my "sneak preview" photos if you missed them.

Another close up...I added the green stones, light blue acrylic, and the large black seed beads:

  1. Beautiful work! I love the different strands beaded with fibers and the placement of the larger and smaller beads :)

  2. I love Raida's lampwork! She must have made these just for you because her colors are usually very earth-toned. What a great piece. I love how you strung the glass beads among the double row of seed beads. Really - the colors look just like some of your own beads! This is a beauty.

  3. I love this necklace! One of my favorites so far!

  4. That wears very pretty. Thanks so much for modeling it. The silver beads just jump out of the black. Such a pretty design!

  5. Love the black and aqua - you pulled it together so wonderfully!

  6. Great necklace. I'll wear it with jeans and a white blouse. Yummy soup!

  7. What a gorgeous piece! Very complex! Lovely!

  8. I do love those colors and the way You mixed the soup together !!

  9. Beautiful necklace! I love how you used several beaded strands with the silk cord, very pretty. It was a pleasure being your partner for this Bead Soup!

  10. This is such a practical piece, one you would wear regularly! Thanks for modelling it too... it's great to see how well it sits irl!

  11. what a fun necklace! beautiful focal too :)

  12. I love black and aqua together too. Nice job!

  13. Sweet! This is so classy - I love it!

  14. What a beautiful, casual, wearable necklace! I could easily see myself wearing this! I know you love it!

  15. That's just gorgeous! I love the drama of the black with the pops of lighter colors!

  16. Wonderful! You have created a terrific piece of wearable art. I like your use of color and texture. Thank you for sharing your artistic process along the way. Cheers!

  17. I love the multi-strand effect, you did a wonderful job featuring the lampwork focal.

  18. I am in love with this! I love the ribbon and the focal, the multiple layers! Wonderful!

  19. I LOVE how you adorned the bottom of the pendant! And all those strands! Well done!

    I hope you'll join me for the next party! The badge and dates are up on my blog!

    Love, Lori

  20. I love that focal they look like sea urichin flowers Lovely beading on all those strands - it's beautiful!

  21. Great necklace, lots to look at and discover.

  22. Very very cool!!!!! I love the length, colors, and focal :)

  23. Love it! The ribbon adds a unique touch. Nice to see it on.

  24. Soup-er Cool and Artsy necklace. Great photo too so we can see how it flows off the neck.

  25. Very pretty! The ribbon is the perfect accent!

  26. Really like the ribbon among the beaded strands! Nice job!

  27. Great use of seed beads with pops of color. Very nice.

  28. Beautiful - I love the mix of big beads and small, of shiny and matte, and then the velvet. Very elegant~!

  29. I love the use of the ribbon with the two strands of beads. It has a hippy vibe (which I love!) with a modern twist. Beautiful! I'd be wearing that necklace a lot.

  30. Lovely piece. I like how you intertwined all the different bead strands and the ribbon/cord. Very pretty.

  31. I am so sorry I am so late , but my computer dug in it's heels and said I'm nota-gonna go that fast:^)
    Your designs are nothing short of amazing.
    Be blessed to be a blessong

  32. You got some lovely soup to work with, lucky lady! Nice job stretching yourself with the ribbon.

  33. Well done! I love the black and turquoise combination as well. The addition of the green was a nice touch.

  34. Great reveal! Love it. We’re all being pushed outside our comfort zones — with amazing results!

    Enjoy the hop,

  35. This is so cool! I don't use ribbon either, always afraid that it will fray. It looks as if you addressed that potential though by putting the ends inside the cones...good idea.

  36. Beautiful and cool necklace! I like the spots of colour in all the black -- and very nice touch with the mix of beaded strands and ribbon. Very nice job!

  37. I really like your necklace, the layers and colors and just beautiful. I also thing the length is just right. Well done!

  38. I love that you've been making big, long, dramatic pieces. I was inspired by your long piece from the "box" challenge to go longer with my design this time. It's hard for me to go with something other than short and easy. :)
    Take care!

  39. I LOVE this! You did a fab job mixing the ribbon with the beads and the focal is so yummy.

  40. This necklace would be so much fun to wear and so stylish.

  41. What a great soup. I love the layers you have created. You did a beautiful job designing around the focal as well. Wonderful soup!

  42. beautiful necklace! i love the black you used. it really made the colors pop! fantastic!

  43. I love how you organized the strands. Good work!


  44. I like the multi-strand necklace and the fact that it is long
