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!! 🙂

I didn’t visit Canada yet (who know… someday) but I always remember an oral report that I have to make for school.  And the first time that I saw the flag of Canada, I fall in love with that beautiful maple leaf.   I don’t know why; but the image always comes to my mind.
