Bead Soup Blog Party!

The moment has arrived! The Bead Soup Blog Party continues now revealing our creations!
I could not commit to white and red, I had to add colors!!! I love multicolor, colorful, whimsical and funky! I've made a long necklace with the white pearls, red beads, and central focal handmade seeded beauty that Karin sent me. I've found in my stash some cute millefiori donuts glass beads, Vitraux Sarowski crystals, Japanese seed glass beads, Czech glass beads, rare Sterling Silver beads and a Sterling Silver clasp (The golden clasp she sent will be for a bracelet in the near future, I needed a stronger one for this long piece).
I made another shorter necklace with my glass handmade lampwork beads, "Ruedas" style, bold, stripy, and again: colorful and multicolor, whimsical and funky. These type of beads will be soon featured in the next "Belle Armoire Jewelry" magazine. The central focal one is immense, approx. 30mm. x 23mm. I've completed this necklace with vitraux and burgundy crystals, rare Czech glass beads and a Sterling Silver clasp.
I was very enthusiastic about the idea of using these 2 pieces either together or separated. I embrace that independence!
I've named this set "EVERYTHING COUNTS".
I have enjoyed every single moment of making the beads, the ones I've sent Karin and these ones, I had fun designing and participating in this event. Thank you all!

I am SO sorry for being late — today our internet provider decided to crash. My stress level is through the roof, to say the least! They’re still working on it, but it’s like dial-up.

WOW, how cool! I love funky pieces and this rocks.

I hope you’ll participate again!

Love, Lori
