Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!

What is a Bead Soup Blog Party?

Each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending the following:

~ A focal
~ A special clasp (not just a lobster claw)
~ Some coordinating spacers or beads

Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest, and choose to use the coordinating beads or not.

Here's what I have made!




For my first set I took the focal (a felt bead), the clasp, the metal beads and charms and some felt beads from my party-partner Savon Feutré



For the second set I used some felt and glass beads from Savon Feutré.
With her two glass flowers I made the clasps for the necklace and the bracelet





and one more - just a simple long necklace with some felt beads from Savon Feutré



Come see what the rest of us made!

  11. Hi Natalie,
    (I decided to start at the bottom of the list --I'm in the middle at #95).

    I love your combination of soft felted beads with hard "sharp" glass beads -- warm felted with cold metal -- beautiful contrasts!

    I hope you get a really good response from the swap/hop -- So much fun!
