Bead Soup Reveal!

My bead soup day is here! Just a note- for some reason I found it difficult to photograph this necklace, so I hope you can tell how the colors correlate.



When I was first contemplating ideas from the great stuff that Stacy sent, I had planned on combining everything into one necklace to mix the metals and beads, but it actually looked like two separate pieces so that is what I went with.










For the necklace I added some more copper chain and when I made the bead dangles I added some swirls to go with the ever so cute tiny ones from Stacy, which dangle from the focal. I tied on a vintage olive button near the clasp which pulls in the olive from the Swarovski cubes.



For the bracelet I decided to combine the Bali silver, coral and chain. All I needed to add was some small coral rounds and a clasp. I think this would make a really great bracelet for summer or winter!


I'll soon be around to everyone's blog to see all the great jewelry... for now, though, I'm on my way to Amy's Creative Beads in Iowa Falls.

Oh this necklace is very cool! I love the section of double chain and that you used two tones to compliment the patina in the pendant. And I agree, that bracelet is multi-seasonal and I would wear it anywhere!!! It's fabulous. Enjoy:)

Very pretty designs! I especially like the red coral bracelet.

Oh I really like your work as I peeked at the necklace in the post below. You have such a nice touch! The BP necklace has its own pizzazz and the bracelet is wonderful! Your work is very individual and this is a well done Soup!!

Love both - love how the copper pendant is hanging from one corner and love the red and silver bracelet together!

Hi Patti - I don't know if it's me or blogger, my original message didn't seem to take. I don't want you to think I don't love these-cause I do!!! Great job-enjoy!!!

Laurel said...

I love that you went with your gut feeling that there should be two pieces - this way each component really gets to shine! Great job!

I love the dragonfly pendant! And you're right, this was a two-piece soup stock! The bracelet is great -- love the asymmetry and the chain and of course, anything red!

Jo said...

What a lovely dragonfly pendant! I love how you've used it.

Nicki said...

These are really cool. I love the way you attached the pendant. and the bracelet looks like it is really cool to wear. Well done.

Kate said...

Both pieces look delicious ;) Have fun in Iowa!

Kella said...

I'm a sucker for copper so its my favourite, love the use of the button near the clasp.

Hi Patti
Great job on your bead soup! I think you did a pretty good job on the photography (I also am photographically challenged!). I love the vintage olive button clasp. Both designs are wonderful!

steufel said...

Great job!

Regina said...

Love the copper necklace and the fact that you hung the pendant on end and added some bead drops to the other hole. Nice idea. Coral and silver makes a great statement around one's wrist, no matter the season. Great work.

Silver Parrot said...

You did a very nice job on both pieces. Love the drama of the red and silver bracelet.

Hi Patti, I love what you did. The focus on that cool dragonfly pendant is great. The beads you added remind me of fireflies, flying around the Big Dragonfly, very summery! And the bracelet is stunning! I love red coral,even make my own faux version. Your pieces are lovely. I hope you had fun bead shopping!:)

Heather said...

Simple and sweet like butternut squash soup!! I love that copper pendant and the tiny dangles add just the right touch. Nice combination of chains too.

Loretta said...

These are both beautiful pieces. I especially love that dragonfly pendant.

Cindy said...

Patti, your two pieces are beautiful..and I agree, they would be perfect to show off this summer! :-)

ViviBijoux said...

Taking good photographs is always a challenge. But that's ok, we can see the fab colours and wire wrapped beads...lovely!

Barbara Bechtel said...

I really like the coral with the silver!

Sissy and Jack's said...

Really nice soup! I love the copper dragonfly. They are good luck, you know! Thanks for the tasty morsels. Enjoy the day! Erin

Charlene said...

Patti,

I think you did a lovely job with both pieces. The bead soup party has been such fun. Not just getting to create something, but also seeing what everyone else came up with.

Very pretty! Love the dragonfly.

Patti said...

Thanks for the wonderful comments! I appreciate them very much!

wildvanilla said...

I love the red pop in the bracelet! The necklace is really lovely too. Great job!

Anna Lear said...

I really like both pieces; they're quite different yet both seem to express your personal style. The bracelet works wonderfully in the red and silver; it has a great "clean" look that's perfect for summer. And that necklace... YUM. Great mix!

Nice Job. Love the pendant.
Bead Happy!
