Wellcome to the 6:th BSBP first reveal day


First of all I want to Thank  Lori Anderson for hosting this HUGE event  again !!
This is what she writes in her blog :
I'm always amazed at how popular this blog hop has become!
This time, we have 400 attendees -- a record for the Bead Soup Blog Party 
how about that :)
And today is the first reveal day of three

And now to the jewelry I made from the beautiful  parts sent from my  talented and skilled partner Jennifer VanBenschoten     (You can have a full  look at the ingredients HERE) ...Do not forget to take a look at what she made with the soup she got from me.

I have to admit I got some new grey hair in the process of making this necklace. It is actually the third  one with this pendant. I should have known better then  to try and plan to much with drawing ideas and such  cause it did not work as it does not do much for me !!....So after one days disaster ....with chains ..pearls ans stuff... I just started playing and let the design make itself ....the way I work most of the time....and voila ..

I present to You  The Shaman´s Magic  necklace


 





Read about the Acorn as a symbol:
Acorn: During the Norman Conquest, the English carried dried acorns to protect themselves from the brutalities of the day. Considered to be an emblem of luck, prosperity, youthfulness and power....
So that is a good symbol for this Shamanic necklace :)

with a lovely piece of deep green sari ribbon with threads like hair...(from my friend Nancy at goldenonetoo )
Added hemp cord in matching colors with dangling Czech glass beads in those gorgeous new styles (jumm)
As a closure  one of my handmade buttons (a favo) made with a pattern from an antique button





Next project was a pair of matching earrings with faceted lucite beads and pearls from Jennifer + some more Czech glass beads silk hemp and ceramic discs


Next task was to make something with the clasp and I  found it very beautiful but a bit delicat  for my kind of bracelets so it ended up in a pair of sea inspired earrings together with the lovely shell beads and sea sediment jasper i got in the swap + some more of those jummy Czech glass beads and a ribbon that looks like a  fisherman´s net. Wires I made from ox. sterling silver ...


Fisherman´s wife assemblage  earrings




And finally one more pair of earrings as I was going on "high muse level" :)
Gorgeous stone lentils and spacers from the ingredients 
added Czech glass, wooden flowers and  those metal dangles that my friend Tiina in Finland  added this lovely patina to 

Focus healing earrings

    Så himla fint med det myckna silket och hampan virad runt i olika färger. Jag älskar det. Och pärlorna som dinglar där också. En perfekt kreation för ekollonet. Och örhängena därtill passar perfekt. Jag blir jätteinspirerad! Hoppas du får många fina kommentarer, det är du väl värd. :-)
