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!! 🙂

Reveal Day: 8th Bead Soup Blog Party

Welcome to the most exciting Blog Party in the jewelry/artist designer’s industry…. The 8th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal Date!!!

Today approximately 490 artist and designers enjoy a virtual party when every participant presents their creativity making wonderful jewelry pieces.  And everything is possible thanks to the wonderful lady Lori Anderson.

This is my first Party and it was so remarkable.  For this occasion I have been honor to participate to this Blog Party with my lovely partner Judy Riggs.   We swap beads and want to show you what I sent to her…..

And Judy sent me these fabulous beads ……

This is the soup that I received from Judy.

The first thing that I see in these beads was the colors.  So rich and bright that inspire me, not only to make the BSBP final pieces, but also inspired to play with other colors combination for my own designs, like this flower that I made.

Torch Fired Enameled Wire
I create this enameled wire pendant flower, inspired by the colors of the soup.

The other thing is my first time to make pieces with lampwork beads.  I’ve been hoarding some lampwork bead for a while.  I love them but I found that I was having problems to incorporate them to my pieces.  But now I have the wonderful time and opportunity to play with some of them. And what better to do with the beads that Judy sent me!! 🙂

This is what I finally create!! 🙂
