Bead Soup Bead Hoarders Edition         Reveal





I really love every bead that my partner April Grinaway sent me.  I love all the beautiful colors she chose for me.  Funny that she chose blues, as that is a color I hardly ever use in my work.
I really wish my pictures were better, it was a challenge trying to take pictures, because of the length of my necklace.
Thank-you April for being my partner, and thank-you for sending me your beautiful work. Can't wait to see what you made!!!

  2. I think you need to start making more things from the blue color palate because you did such a great job with those beads! Feminine but not too delicate. Really lovely!

    1. I think I do too, I don't really know why I don't do a lot with blue. I'm a purple and green girl. But I'm thinking blue is my new palette. thank-you for visiting my blog.

    1. Thank-you, I had fun creating these pieces. They are totally out of my realm. I'm a seed bead girl. But I have to say I'm in love with Lamp work.

  5. It looks like one of those necklaces has interchangeable dangles. That is crazy cool! Love what you did with all the necklace options. I know what you mean about long necklaces being a challenge to photograph. You did it well!

    1. Yes, that necklace actually has three different interchangeable dangles, but one of them wasn't from my soup. And thanks about the photos, the lighting in my house is terrible, and not having something long enough to hang that necklace from was not fun. lol
