Bead Soup Blog Party - Bead Hoarder's Edition

Hi Y'all,

Well the big day has arrived the BSBP Bead Hoarder's Edition hosted by Lori Anderson. Lori always does a wonderful job at organizing these blog parties. These blog parties are a lot of work pairing people up with a partner, gathering blog address and Pintrest boards, sending out emails and Facebook postings. My hat is off to you Lori and to your helpers for keeping this party organized and running as smooth as possible, thank you.

This is my fourth time participating in the BSBP and this time around I was partnered with Babette Cox a wonderfully talented person. Here is a the items that Babette sent to me.


The Hoarded beads are the turquoise nuggets, the coral, the clasp, and the teal and white beads, These beads are very special to Babette, they used to belong to a dear friend of hers that has passed away and resides in heaven. The lamp worked glass focal bead was made as a gift for me. I really hope Babette likes what I did with the beads that she sent to me.

Here is what I made using the hoarded beads and the focal bead.


I made a rosary using the hoarded turquoise nuggets and the teal and white beads. The rest of the items are from my stash.



I also made dangles from the turquoise nuggets, the coral, and the teal and white beads combined with items from my stash. I made six dangles, but they did not hang well from the bottom of the focal glass bead, so I took three of the dangles off and made a pair of earrings out of two of the three dangles I removed. I made a bead woven rope using turquoise 8'0 seed beads and blue and lime green 11'0 seed beads and the hoarded clasp, I did the rope using the Russian Spiral stitch.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.  Thank you Lori for hosting this Bead Soup Blog Party.

  6. Those beads went into just the right hands. You treated them with reverence and turned them into beauty. I love the way you re-purposed some of the tassel and made earrings. Three for the tassel is the perfect number. Absolutely lovely!

  28. Very pretty pieces. The coral really makes the turquoise pop.

  29. Your pieces feel like that are at the opposite end of the spectrum: there's the rosary. While it's beautiful, it's still very conservative in nature. Then there's the other necklace. Between the focal bead itself and the highlights you added, it feels like a fiesta of frivolity! As always, beautiful work!
