7th Bead Soup Blog Hop Reveal!

Well I have 2 pieces photographed with my phone and they are not the best but at least I can post these.
My Bead Soup Partner is Cheryl Gangle, her is her blog,

www.RockCandyJewelryDesign.blogspot.com





And here is the Bead Soup she sent to me:






The focal and the matching beads were made by Cheryl. I love all the silver components she sent me, I have already commissioned a few of those pieces on paper so far. I also have a couple of ideas for the pendant and matching beads, probably using leather. There are also two clasps...will use both eventually but for this challenge I think I will use the round toggle one- simple but textured design.

    1. Thank you Jean.
      Isn't that frog the cutest thing.. when I opened the 3 boxes of goodies, I envisioned several pieces. She sent me so many goodies that I will be using them for a long while. The pictures are not good, but they are viewable. :)

  3. Beautiful necklaces, I really like the green one and how you incorporated the ribbon into it. Is the focal a little frog, really cute if it is?

    1. Thank you, yes the one focal is a frog.. at first when I saw these little pieces I didn't know what they were, but then I started looking at them. I saw the little frog head first, then the legs and knew I had the perfect little beads for this!

  4. Yea Cheri!!! Your creations are awesome! I am so glad you got your pictures posted. You have designed two beautiful necklaces! I have such a hard time working in an asymmetrical way...I think I'm just a little anal! (sorry!) You really nailed it! I would definitely wear either one with pride. Thank you so much for being a wonderful first Bead Soup Blog Party partner with me. You challenged me with elements that I had never worked with before. Thanks, again for all of the fun!
    Hugs!

    1. I agree with you Cheryl, we do have to meet in the not so distant future! I will send updates of pices I make with my wonderful bead soup. I love what you created, both pieces are great! Thank you so much for all my goodies. I love that little frog, especially after I found bits and pieces that made the necklace come together. I do a lot of asymetrical, putting the clasp on the side is kind-of like a signature of mine. I like to make necklaces that can be worn several ways for those who do not always like to wear the clasp on the side.
      Thank you for everything, Cheri :)
