German Bead Soup

It’s time for the Bead Soup Blog Hop and our 2nd Reveal for August 11th! There was one a week ago and the last one a week from now. It was split up because there are 400 participants!!
A few weeks ago I blogged about all the wonderful things I received from my Partner Stefanie Teufel of Germany. Here is a recap of what she sent.

She knew I like Copper so she included some chain, a Toggle and Focal Heart in that metal which I used as the basis for this necklace. I didn’t use all the beads as I only had so many copper bead caps and wasn’t sure how else to pull off the larger beads or how to incorporate the odd smaller beads work with the large, but I think this one works!

Here is another view. The focal with the Green Agate bead

I used the Jade and Coconut beads for these Earrings…

I filled the little glass vial with sand and all the small beads that would fit in and used the green jump ring to hang from a simple necklace that has African frosted flower beads.

So I was able to use most of the beads.

What an interesting soup you have! I love what you did to the beads. It is interesting to see the glass vial as a focal piece!

Margareta said...

Very fresh, very 'breezy', so lovely all of them!

Tammie said...

I think you did a great job with your soup. I especially like the last piece with the vial, so summery and light. Nice work!

Lovely work! I like the chunky necklace with the heart focal very much - the green and blue match the copper so well. And how smart to add the beads to the glass vial and make that a pendant.

Shirley said...

They are all beautiful pieces, but I really love those sweet earrings! Such a cool surprise! And the glass vial is a great focal piece! You did a wonderful job with a beautiful soup!

Leslie said...

Lovely job with the copper and beads. And you can never go wrong with a vial of sand.

You have such amazing jewelry, and are an incredible artist. I would wear everything so joyfully! It's all beautiful, Tina. The way you used the crystal rondelle from the soup with the soup waves bead; and the copper bead caps with the larger bright beads look great! Your copper necklace is gorgeous, especially with the earrings you created! Fantastic, strong design -- love the brilliance of your jewelry here. And I adore the sand bottle and African flower beads necklace! Using the green jump ring here, along with the pretty crystal at the end of the chain, and beautiful rich necklace all make this design incredible beautiful jewelry! You are amazing :) Beautiful designs!
