Bead Soup Blog Party 7 Reveal

It is finally that time again.  It is the 2nd Reveal for the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party.  My lovely partner Sue, sent me a delicious bowl of soup.  It took me a while, but eventually the ideas started flowing.

Soup from Sue - Love the colors!

The rules for this challenge are to send your partner a set of beads, a focal and a clasp.  You have to use the focal and the clasp but do not need to put them in the same piece.  I tired to use as much as I could of the beautiful soup.  Hope you enjoy what I've cooked up!

A bracelet with the clasp from Sue.

I fell in love with a wire Kumihimo necklace I saw on facebook by Pru McRae.  This was my first attempt at Kumi with wire.  It was a bit awkward.

The focal from Sue.

 A pair of earrings with my favorite color combo.  I absolutely love the green beads.  Can't wait to wear these.

Love green with copper.

I still had some beads left over, so I kept going.  Pink and green beads...shocker and cream colored silk cord.

Thank you once again to Lori Anderson for hosting this amazing event.  The participation is overwhelming (in a good way). Looking forward to hopping.  Please be sure to visit my partner Sue's blog to see what she made with the soup I sent her.

There are close to 500 total participants.  Reveal 1 was at the end of March and there is still 1 more reveal to go.  Please check out the lovely designs by visiting Lori's blog below:
