Sandra's Bead Soup Reveal

It's Lori Anderson's 7th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal Day.  I've cooked up a number of pieces from the soup that my partner Erin Kenny sent me.
First up - the Focal

Sometimes simple is best so I highlighted the flecks of copper in the glass lamp work focal with glass beads and thin copper chain.
Matching earrings.
Up next - the Toggle

I made a casual bracelet utilizing this lovely silver toggle and stone beads included in the soup.

The focal and toggle were the only soup items that were mandatory to be used - not necessarily together.
And then I started playing with the mookaite and came up with a lovely watch.
And matching earrings.
The two wire wrapped stones had me stumped but I came up with this bracelet which I really love!

 Thank you for dropping by my blog to see how I used my soup!  Namaste.

  13. Sandra - oh, your pieces are elegant and so lovely! I think your "keep it simple" approach to the focal was spot-on, and I adore those matching earrings - they "feel Egyptian" to me, if that makes any sense? The bracelets are both scrumptious, and that watch looks like lots of fun to wear! The earrings with the chain are a delight! Well done!
