BSBP Reveal!

Oh dear, oh dear… Today is the reveal day for the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party – something I only realised yesterday evening.  I thought it was on Sunday.  (I’ve not done at all well with dates recently!)  I’ve had to dash around this morning getting my photos taken.  So, without further ado, I’d better get on with things.  I have made a heap of stuff with the wonderful soup that the lovely Lori Anderson sent me.

full soup from lori

For a full run through of the ingredients, head here.  The first piece that I made was this bracelet, using some of the recycled glass nuggets.

frosted shells

(ceramic heart charm – Bo Hulley Beads)

I’ve been wondering what to do with these vintage shell beads for some time.  The glass nuggets were just the right size.  Next, I turned my attention to the beautiful lampwork focals, made by Jane Perala, and the stock of delicious czech glass.

cluster strand bracelet

Do you see those vivid blue spacers?  I was quite taken with them and there were loads in my soup so I simply stranded the rest of them together to make this skinny wrap bracelet.

(bronze charm – Thea Elements)

The main focal and clasp that Lori sent were both sweet Thai Hill silver butterflies.  I wanted to combine them in a necklace reminiscent of pinned butterfly displays.  This sort of thing:

butterflies

So I collected together a few more butterflies from my stash and made several attempts at getting them all to hang one above the other in a necklace, with little success.  Then I had a brainwave. Why not just make a number of necklaces that can be layered up to form a column of butterflies?

(ceramic butterfly – Marsha Neal, ceramic drops – Scorched Earth)

It was hell’s delight to photograph, but I’m quite pleased with my solution. My soup included a stack of pewter rings which I’ve wired together to form my own chain.  Here’s a detail, showing the clasp.

I had some of the chain left so I mixed it with more of the czech glass in a multi strand bracelet.

(ceramic heart – Blueberribeads)

Earrings next, three pairs:

(ceramic droppers: Scorched Earth)

earrings 2

(enamel leaves – Gardanne)

earrings 3

(lampwork discs – Helen Chalmers)

My favourite bead was one of the large lampwork pieces, so I decided to treat myself to a simple pendant piece – a bit of a BSBP souvenir!

And finally, another recycled glass and vintage bead combo:

geo bracelet

(ceramic bead – Round Rabbit)

Phew! Told you there was a lot. I’m so grateful to Lori for sending such a bounteous and beautiful soup (and for organising the whole thing!) – Thank you, Lori!  Here’s the soup that I sent to her.

To see what she has made with it, here’s the link to Lori’s blog.  And, of course, there are hundreds of folk around the globe participating in today’s party.  Go visit them and show some love:

BSBP: From Lori to me

Okay, I’m back to share the fabulous soup that Lori sent to me.  But where to start?  It arrived beautifully packaged.

cute bag

How sweet is this wee baggie? Love the vintage button particularly (of course!)  There was yet more pleasing packaging inside this.

gift boxes

Both of these boxes arrived with beautiful bows, but I’d already stuck my eager, greedy beak inside the dark one before I remembered I was supposed to be taking pictures.  Now for the wonders inside. I’m crazy about these.

lampwork glass

The large ones are from Jane Perala and they’re fab. I’m glad I got them as part of this soup because if I’d got them any other way I’d be sure to hoard them for forever. Lori can’t remember who made the little lampies but they’re very nice too. And guess what? These aren’t even the focal(s).  Look –

focal and clasp

Apparently Lori has been hoarding these for some time. How kind?! They’re Thai Hill Tribe silver (99%), which I’ve never used before. The smaller butterfly is a clasp. I have a bit of an idea brewing for these. Hope I can make it work!  I don’t tend to use bright silver very often so that’s going to be a new thing to think on.  And while we’re talking silver…

pewter and silver

Lori also included these dinky sterling lantern-ish spacers. So much silver! The large twists are pewter, as are the little rings.  I’ve got a bit a plan for those too.  There’s more:

glass and pearls

I love these big coin pearls!  And a bit of a coincidence: the faux sea glass looks very similar to the recycled glass that I sent to Lori.  I do like its frostiness!  And finally, I’d mentioned to Lori that I love czech glass…

czech glass

See how the bag was neatly matched to what was inside!  Here’s everything together:

full soup from lori

Didn’t I do well?!  To see what I sent to Lori head here.

Obviously, I can’t begin to say a big enough ‘thank you’ to Lori, but

THANK YOU, LORI !!!!!!!!!

 

BSBP: From me to Lori

So, it’s Bead Soup Blog Party time again.  Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Here’s a post from last year, which explains it all.  I started putting my soup together a wee while ago. I was ordering a stack of stuff from a certain online shop where you can buy all manner of beady goods, including art beads. I took a bit of a ‘Friday night shop’ approach to it, finding a focal and clasp, then slinging various other matching items into my cart.  It was really the focal and clasp that determined the rest of the soup ingredients. I ended up going with a colour that I don’t use much myself – green.

focal and clasp

(enamel leaf – CKoop, clasp – Miss Fickle Media)

It’s not that I don’t like green – I do! I just seem to overlook it.  There are certain greens I love – like lime and chartreuse.  But it isn’t one of my go-to colours.  It’s not just the case with designing; I barely ever buy green clothing, for example. I’m not consciously avoiding it. I just find that it’s missing when I look for it. Anyway, enough about my green issues. I haven’t introduced my partner.  She doesn’t really need an introduction.  It’s Lori Anderson, who’s only the blimmin’ organiser of this whole swap thing! Obviously, I was stoked and more than a bit surprised when I discovered that Lori was my partner. And then I was struck with SIC (Soup Inferiority Complex).  ‘How many soups must Lori have cast her eye over’, I thought. ‘Surely mine is going to seem wanting’.  But I’d already ordered the focal and clasp and various other bits, so I resisted the temptation to scrap my plans.  Here’s the rest of what I’ve sent to Lori. I know she’s received it – apparently, her son, Zack, was very taken with the leaf, which was good to hear!

soup in full 1

There’s a couple of strands of recycled glass, which I bought when I got the focal and clasp.

recycled glass

Then I pulled together a mix of other miscellaneous green stuff. misc green

Inevitably, there’s a couple of Petra bits, along with some dark green leather and some czech glass leaves/drops/top-drilled thingummies. I included that big painted wood rectangle as a bit of a curve ball. I’ve actually got two strands of them, one green and one fuchsia pink. I bought them because I liked the look of them but I didn’t have a clue what I’d do with them. Putting this soup together, I actually came up with a necklace design using one, so that was neat. Anyway, I thought I’d challenge Lori with one too. To counter all the green, I added in a bunch of semi-precious – quartzes mainly, and some coffee jasper.

semi-precious

Very Spring-y, I thought.  Here’s the whole soup again.

full soup 2

I’m really intrigued to see what Lori comes up with. The reveal day is 3rd May.  I have received the most fabulous soup from Lori, which rather puts mine to shame, but hey ho!  I’ll be back to share it very soon – hopefully tomorrow!

7th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal

So, it’s my reveal day for the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party.  I wrote a blog some weeks ago, detailing what the Bead Soup Blog Party is all about, so if you’re scratching your head, head here.  If you do know what it’s all about, you’ll still want to see what I received from my partner, Kathrin Lembke.

soup from kathrin

There was a bright selection of Kathrin’s lampwork beads and a mix of antique brass beads and findings.  There was also a collection of quite dainty, pretty beads (mother of pearl drops, freshwater pearls, and floral ceramic rounds), which seemed quite distinct from the rest of the soup, and I had the idea to develop the design of a pair of earrings I made some time ago and offset the prettiness with some darkened, artfully messy wirework frames.  Which didn’t go well.  After quite a lot of wrapping, hammering and LOS-ing, I had a mess that wasn’t remotely artful.  But after all this I wasn’t going to be abandoning the wretched things, so I wrapped them in sari silk ribbon and started to adorn them.

BSBP earrings 1

There were going to be pearls on those chains but enough was enough.  I had a vague plan for a necklace and I knew that I would have quite a lot of soup left over, including the clasp.  So, the next thing I made was a bracelet, using much of the lampwork and antique brass, and mixing in some czech glass and vintage lucite.

bsbp bracelet 1

When I made up the soup for Kathrin, I limited the colour palette to two colours and avoided putting in metal pieces that would influence what colour metal she would use.  I had a strong idea what I would do with it if I were using it and I was interested to see what decisions she made on these things.  I tested myself in a similar way.  I picked out the large orange flower focal then tried to think of colours, other than those in the soup, that would work with what I had.  I decided on deep indigo and hot pink and added some vintage glass and charms, dyed magnesite and handmade paper beads (by Spoon).  And lots more chain!

bsbp necklace 1

It’s quite a simple design but I like it.  Now I must go and see what Kathrin made.  Here’s the soup I sent to her.

And here’s a list of all the other participants – happy hopping!
