BSBP#8: The Big Reveal

Right to the good stuff.....

Made with Rhonda's beaded bead, crystals, and agate rondelles.

Made with Rhonda's (she made it) clasp and lampwork focal.

Bracelet made with brown rainbow bugle beads supplied by Rhonda.

Bracelet is based on a tutorial, Toskana by SeeBead.  I used Czech twins instead of tila or tile beads.  I didn't have enough tile beads so the twins made a wonderful substitution.


Soup I started with.
Thank you Lori for hosting a wonderful 8th swap and blog hop!  Thank you Rhonda for a most enjoyable soup!  To see other simmering soups and creations visit the BSBP blog for the list of participants (about 500)!

  31. Hi there well to begin with let me say your work is professional and very attractive. You designs flow beautifully. If I had to pick a favorite, which is hard in this case, it would have to be the weave bracelet. I love the colors and the shimmery shine. It is very pretty. But I in no way want to diminish the other pieces because they are also stunning. ty so much for sharing with us all

    The first bracelet is definitely my favorite, wonderful choice of beads and arrangement! I like how you have weaved in a purplish cord to match the focal in you second piece. As to the beaded bracelet - I admire the sense of pattern and how you know which beads can replace which :)

  46. You made quite a lot with those tasty ingredients, and all so very different from the last! I adore beaded beads. I have no idea how they are made so they are like magic beans to me! And that bracelet... wow! What a stunner that is! And what a lot of work. Thank you for sharing your creations in the 8th Bead Soup! Enjoy the day. Erin

2019 Bead Peeps Swap & Hop Reveal!

To my Peeps: I think as I get older, sickness lasts longer. Everyone is better now and down to sniffles.  On to the good stuff. My partner for this years' Swap & Hop was Dain Schlegel of Dainty Designs.  However, she is recovering from a surgery and wasn't able to get beads to me.  I hope she gets better soon.  So Linda Anderson set me up with an Angel.  Krafty Max sent me a whole lot of beads. Beads on strings, beads in tubes, stone cabochons, fused glass pendants, and Czech beads, rounds, and crystals. Although, I didn't use all of the beads, I did manage to put together a few pendants and UFOs. The pendant above is one of the stones I worked with. Here are the beads she sent: Here is a pendant made with a few blue and white stones from KM. It's finished, I just need to bead up a rope. This is supposed to be a Mini Mountain Girl bracelet (Regina Payne), and I used to small purple stone beads from KM. Thank you Krafty Max for the bea

Art Charm Exchange, Auction and Reveal!

Add caption The Art Charm Exchange hosted by Jennifer Cameron, Glass Addictions .  The purpose of the Art Charm Exchange, other than the opportunity to swap beautiful charms, was to make an extra charm to be auctioned off to... Beads of Courage !  The theme was laughter.  I agonized over this for several days before I buckled down and made the charms above.  I just used beautiful art beads from my collection, crystals, and a shrink art charm.  This was my first foray into art charms.  After I mailed them out to our wonderful hostess, I began to think about other things I could have done.  Oh well, maybe next time.  I cannot remember where all of the art beads came from, but I do know some came from Juli Cannon of Julsbeads , Carolyn Harmon, Miami Valley Lampwork Bead Association , Janel Goolsby/ JeraLunaDesigns , and a few artists with Ebay shops.  Thank you Jennifer for introducing me to a fun project and a wonderful charity. These are the charms I received: List of Parti
