Well after a week’s delay, here we have the results of my Bead Soup.
And… It’s not finished!
*hangs head in shame*
At least not finished in the way I’d like it to be, even though I kind of love it the way it is. Alas and alack, I realised too late that I didn’t have the bits I needed to finish it the way I wanted to and due to issues like me being unwell and the cat being crook, it just didn’t come together as planned. However I did stick with my initial design and went for simplicity. Peruzi beads really do speak for themselves and I didn’t want to take away too much attention from them by adding too much in the way of embellishments.
I will definitely be updating this necklace in the coming days so I can show what I REALLY had in mind for it, but for now I’m happy.

You can see the absolutely magnificent job my BSBP partner, Tracy, did with the beads I sent her right here! She’s done an amazing job and made some stunning jewellery with what I sent her.
Just in case you need a reminder, this is what I sent Tracy:
