7th Bead Soup Blog Party REVEAL 1

now it is time again  for this  h u g e  event with participating jewelry artists from all over the world just in the beginning of spring (over here)


I have not shown myself on the Pinterest and other forums due to health issues and most of all LOTS !  of internet problems ( like right now it took me 1,5 hour just to get 7 pictures into this post )

A BIG thank You and many warm HUGS to
LORI ANDERSON   and team  ( You did it again !) the amazingly dedicated host of this multiple blog hop that starts today and with the third and last hop reveal  April?
As Lori is not well the second and third reveal are moved forward !!  This flower is for Lori and hope she will feel better soon and get some sleep !

And to my very talented and warm-hearted partner
DINI BRUISMA  from Holland. She makes stunning   lampwork beads for sure ! On her blog You can see what she made of the soup she got from me  :-)

a picture of the gorgeous mix she sent  :

Starting off with the BLUE my first jewelry piece showed is a Talisman and healing necklace with that amazing  Kyanite focal I got from Dini. Kyanite is one of the most powerful healing-stone and it does not take on any negative energies ever... they say...
As usual I started out with a complete different idea how to use it with macrame and linen but this is was had to be done ...
(I do not argue much with the muse and angels )

The pendant is based on a copper "ring" with  inscription made by fellow Etsy  artist  and arceologist  Tiina
 In the dangle You find that  gorgeous  Kyanite stone, vintage horse head  (gift from a dear friend in US), vintage bell charm (from a friend in Australia), vintage Religious medal, african metal beads, bone different styles, pearl, rhinestone spacer ball and ethnic glass beads.
As usual not only this blog hop is worldwide but the ingredients in my jewelry comes from all over  !

After finishing what I had planned  to do I sat down playing around with what is left of the soup..... and those earrings created themselves  with connectors in silver color from Dini´s mix , rhinestone spacers, sea sed. Jasper , wood, ethnic beads and Lapis Lazuli . Ear wires in sterling by myself.

And now over to the REDS
First thing I made when I got the beads from Dini was those earrings as I fell so much in love with her lovely lampwork beads and this triangular shape jummjumm
Added some ethnic beads, coral, Czech glass and my handmade ceramic daggers  

Next is a matching pendant and leather necklace with one more of those lovely triangular lampwork beads, my ceramic old looking medal, coral and in the ends some bone and more coral. This is adjustable with a sliding bead in ancient look Czech glass...(leather is hand cut and dyed in the US)

....and a bracelet !
Dinis lovely lampwork is the focal and I added some of her lovely stones (agate, coral, rock crystal), my ceramic flower button, lots of handmade ethnic style glass beads, sea themed charms and a matte silver finish lobster to close behind the button   

with (almost) matching earrings. I did get a bit obsessed with that triangular shape so I made some triangular beads and charms in clay. Here a pair of red ones with fragments of a butterfly, faceted Pyrite beads from Dini and some ethnic style glass beads

Finally  .....what became of the clasp this time.....
A Yoga inspired leather bracelet with my ceramic bead, Czech glass beads large hole, braided, natural and blue leather with a Buddha dangle ....

I do have some nice beads and stuff left from the soup so one more bracelet and some earrings are on the way...  :-)

This is on my bead table ....fantastic Agate beads from the soup and my focal...not sure yet how it will turn out..

  During this first BSBP week  I have a 20% sale in my  Etsy shops. Go there to get the CODES  !!

Also I have a Give-Away of those ceramic art beads
one bracelet focal and one pendant in ancient green :
