Bead Peeps Swap N Hop 2017 Reveal Day

The day is here… Reveal Day! 🙂  First of all is you want to read the first part of this story click here to meet my lovely partner Joanne Louvaine Beel from Twinkiedinky.  So first of all I want to show you what I sent to Joanne…

 

 

I sent to Joanne a spring theme with Czech, lampwork bead and a lovely enameled bird pendant.

Now, I want to show you what Janne sent me 🙂

 

Everything is perfect!!!!  Joanne was so careful with every single detail.  When I opened the package, I felt that I was opening a magic box.  🙂  Every single bead is so delicate that I decide to create a simple but elegante necklace…

 

 

 

And… a beautiful pair of earrings with Joanne gorgeous wings components… 🙂

 

Well, I hope you enjoy this post.  Please don’t forget to visit the Joanne’s blog to see what she create with the beads I sent to her.

Bead Soup Blog Party – Reveal Day

 

Hello Everybody!

Today is the reveal day for de Bead Soup Blog Party 2017.  For this party my partner is Karin King and she is from Canada.  This BSBP 2017  (Hosted by Lori Ardenson) is a little bit more different than the previous parties.  For this occasion, instead of send new art beads, we have to select from these beads that  you have been hoarding for a while.  Very interesting… right? Soon, 🙂 Lets see what Karin sent me. 🙂

 

I love the color combination and the lampwork beads.  And look at those head pins!!!  I really fall in love with my bead soup.  Now, I wan to show you the bead soup I sent to Karin….

I sent her few art beads that I’ve bee hoarding for a while…. specially that Jade Scott pendant.  And why not, some enameled filigree beads 🙂

 

And now…. I wan to share with you what I create with the bead soup Karin sent me.  Hope you like it. 🙂

First… I designed a chocker style necklace with the lampwork beads……

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My second piece is a another necklace, but this time is a long one… Using the vintage beads she sent me and adding some enameled filigree bead from my own stash..

 

 

 

And finally two pairs of earrings 🙂

 

 

Well, this is all for now!  Hope you like the designs and don’t forget to visit Karin King Blog and the rest of the participants Here.

See you!! 🙂

Spring Earrings

Hello my friends! Today I want to show you a new design. Yes, earrings!

Butterflies ear wires

 

I feel more confortable creating bracelets and necklaces. But for this occasion, I decided to create this design. The main reason why I create it is for a basic metalsmith class I took with Monique Michel, a local artist with more than 30 years in the jewelry design industry. And it was one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had.

Spring EarringsThe butterflies are made of brass ( I cute them out by hand, using a jewelers saw) and soldered to a 20ga half hard sterling silver wire. And finally, add czech beads.  I like them so much 🙂  What you do think?

Take photos to earrings it’s a little bit tricky and I know I need a little bit more of practice.  But that’s a topic for another day. 🙂

Spring Earrings

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
