So this is what is left, so far, from my bead soup from my lovely partner Doris Stumpf over at Glaszwerg
Toby can't wait to see what I made too...
and VOILA! I made all this stuff!
pretty cool, huh?
I love the focal on this one. The melding of colors, and the shape is so unique. I used the seed beads she sent me to make a beaded "jump ring" if you will to hold the focal around the necklace. The rest of the beads Doris made as well, and I tied a knot in between them all on a leftover piece of velvet cording I had. I *had* to go for a fancy clasp, since this piece is so fancy.
This focal I love too, with the swirly colors and uneven shape. I used a leftover piece of flat leather cording for the necklace and used 2 other large hole beads Doris sent me. I used some chain, in different lengths, to make the necklace longer. The chain is uneven, so you can wear this short or long.
pretty short, cute earrings from some other beads she sent.
I love these long silvery beads and thought they would look good as drop earrings.
A big thanks to our host, Lori Anderson for putting such a large group together and not *totally* losing her mind.
