Bead Soup Blog Hop, Bead Hoarders Edition..Revealed !!

My partner this year is CJ Bausch Artist, Designer. She is an amazing artist who makes incredible jewelry. You will see what she made with my beads on her blog here....http://fool4jewels.blogspot.com.
She sent me a boxful of goodies to work with.
This first piece is a multi strand necklace full of beads sent to me by my partner. 
I've grown a deep appreciation of artists who work with seeds beads.
They are hard to work with !







I made these earrings to match.


Then I put this necklace together. Working with these sparkling crystals was a delight.





And finally I made this for all the butterfly people out there to enjoy.





Thank you Lori Anderson for putting this event together and for everyone who participated.

  19. I love all the colors you put together with the crystals. So blinging and springy (we need spring here). Great job on your soup - the black really is stunning.

  21. At first I was distracted by your banner photos of your glass beads! Then I got to the nitty gritty of your pieces for the hop. I really like your multi-strand necklace of black and purple - what a nice mixture of colors and textures. Actually, I could say that about all of your pieces - colorful and full of texture. Well done on everything!
