Bead Soup Blog Party 2014 – The Big Reveal

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:

  1. This is a beautiful necklace. I love the soft color palette and the use of the textures. Thank you for sharing your talents with the Bed Soup. Enjoy the day! Erin

  2. I love your necklace! Very pretty for the beach or anywhere! I think you did a great job !

  3. You’re right – the beads speak for themselves in the subtle design of your necklace. It will look good on both darker and lighter colored clothes, there is a feel of earthiness about it.

  4. LOVE the earthiness of the necklace. great use of the focal and clasp. (and I’m so envious of what you sent your partner – colors are spectacular)
