BSBP Bead Hoarders Edition Blog & Pinterest Hop

Between my mother's surgery and recovery, the shower valve's constant drip, keeping my A1C levels down, and taking classes in creating with precious metal clay, I am well and truly stressed out. However, I did manage to at least finish the pendant, even though I will probably redo it sometime in the future. The bead(s) my partner Shai sent are unique and in some of my favorite color to work with--copper with bronze tones. You can tell the piece was rushed a bit.  I plan to make a Kumihimo rope to finish the design.



I also quickly made a pair of earrings from the ceramic beads.



Thank you Lori for hosting the BSBP again!  The link to list of participants is below.

  7. I just love what you did with the focal! Be sure to show it off when you get it finished.

    Those earrings are incredible! I had that pair of beads for a few years & never could come up with a design to do them justice.

  15. The bead embroidery around the focal raises it to a whole new level. It will be cool to see the piece come together with a beaded rope. I really love the long tassely earrings. Great design. Great use of your soup!

  19. Those are my favorite colors too. I'm drooling over my keyboard now. I LOVE how you did your seed bead work (I don't have the patience, eyes, or neck for that much detail) you really pulled it off and I can't tell it was rushed. My other fave are the earrings with unique seed danglies. Too fun - where didja get those seeds?
    Great job, great soup - hope life calms a bit for you.
