WooT! 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party
Woot Woot! It's Time for the Party!
Bead Soup Reveal Day!
Yay its reveal day !
Well here is the picture I promised of the soup I sent to Sheila . She was kind enough to send me a pic as I was not too swift and sent the soup out without taking one.
here again is my yummy soup I received.
each and every spoonful !
Right now I have 2 neck pieces completed from my soup.
There is SO much goodness, I think I could post for a week,
and might just do so as I finish more pieces!
The first piece I created a copper fold form bezel around the large beautiful green focal bead Sheila sent me.
I was so happy when received all of the lovely shades of green in my soup . I was so ready for spring, and my bead soup was bursting with beautiful colors.
It has a drop with one of my etched bird bullets beads, and lots more of Sheila
s beads/ .
I darkened up the beautiful clasp Sheila sent just a bit , and then buffed back out.
I hated to do that to such a gorgeous clasp , but it was in keeping with the style I was working with.
These black babies are my absolute favs!
He said he was going out to Home Depot, and I asked if he could get me some really
thick copper wire.
This is what he brought!
It's absolutely gorgeous as soon as you take the torch to it.
It is a little hard for my hand that is not up to par yet , but it
was awsome exercise.
Wow this wire is my new favorite thing in the world.
I see lots of bracelet experimentation with this .
He didn't say what gauge it was , I will have to get receipt from him, but I am thinking 8-6ish?
I thought he brought me 1/4 " copper tubing when he gave it to me as it was so thick.
I added some of my verdigris bullets and the lovely flower beads Sheila sent to me .
This one has a fold formed copper bail and hangs on leather chord.
