Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!

It's time, it's hear! It's time for us to show off our creations for the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party!

I am really excited! I was partnered up with Patty Miller of Cabaribeads! She sent me a BEAUTIFUL soup loaded with my favorite turquoises and aquas! I was so excited when my soup finally arrived! She made the gorgeous lampwork focal bead and the lovely etched copper heart link.






I was out shopping the day that my soup came and took advantage of a sale and scooped up some larger coordinating beads to go with my soup.  I chose the turquoise howlite rectangles and the dyed ocean jasper.  Both of these colors really played beautifully with that awesome focal bead!





What I finally ended up with when I finished editing out the extra beads form both Patty and my shopping spree, was the howlite, the jasper, the little purple jade beads from Patty, the turquoise glass beads from patty, some copper and purple jade beads from my stash, the focals and the toggle from Patty. I wanted to try an asymmetrical design so I used the heart on one side. I think it came out beautifully!




I want to thank Lori Anderson of the Pretty Things Blog for putting this Blog Hop together! There are almost 500 participants, world wide, in this blog hop! Be sure to check out the other participants reveals! There are going to be some really gorgeous designs! BLOG HOP BLOG ROLL!

Be sure to check out Patty's blog on the second reveal date next Saturday to see what she does with the soup I sent her!
