  1. That's a lot of pieces you created from your lovely soup! Project #3 Grabs my attention with the ring you placed around your focal. The choice of beads to complement that focal was very nice.

  2. Sandra! What a lovely four pieces. I love all your pieces. Nice job with working pearls into the necklaces. I know knotting didn't work this time but the way you integrated the pearls were perfect. Glad you had fun partner!

    1. Oh, Tracy! You were a splendid partner! Contraptions and me don't get along - never have - don't know why I keep tormenting myself and trying to use them. I'll conquer knotting one day with or without that stupid tool I have.

  3. Very nice pieces, I like the video collage idea, I might have just put it in one segment to make it easier for the hoppers

    1. Thank you Tammie! I was hoping that if bloggers were rushing they could just glance at the four collages and if they were taking their time they could open them to see the detail. I was having difficulty showcasing the individuality of each set. I'll have a better system for the next hop.

  19. Loved that you chose to present your creations differently. You did such a great job using up your bead soup. I tried to do the same with mine but still had assorted beads left. All 4 designs are beautiful and I really like the elegance of your pieces, especially the first 2.

  35. You really did get quite a few pieces made with your soup. Impressive!! They are all so elegant and just plain nice. Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Everything was just beautiful. Project #3 is my favorite. Now, surely you can come up with a necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings with that one pearl. Why don't you go back and try again? Great job!

    1. I know......I've been beating myself up for being such a slacker! I thought about using it in a keychain but couldn't come up with an idea for it!! Thanks for dropping by!

  37. Great work and love the slide show idea.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Those are all beautiful designs but project three is my favorite. I love the red and turquoise together and I never would have come up with that! Beautiful work!

    1. Thank you. I think that all the time too - that I never would have come up with that idea - when I'm looking at so many of the awesome designs that ladies come up with! It all depends what you have in your stash I guess. That agate ring was something I got in a bag of destashed beads. I almost threw it out cuz I didn't have a clue what it was and thought it was rather big and ugly, but the hoarder in me stashed it....came in handy!

    Love the player..great idea.
