The hostess of this great  PARTY  is the one and only  dedicated and  talented designer
Lori Anderson  who with the help from her team make this all happen !
and Thank You Lori   ......we all love You and want You to feel better  soon  !

So... here is  the beautiful and very generous  SOUP  i got from my talented sweet partner  Doris Stumpf . Lots of handmade lampwork beads and other goddies
 (I do admit there is plenty of beauties left for future designs :-) )
Do not forget to have a look at her blog to see what she made of the soup I sent to her!
just click on her name ! 

*Wheel of Change Talisman necklace *

So first to go is a necklace with the gorgeous glass ring bead. It did take me some time to make it mine I cut to pieces one necklace before this one started to grow....
I made a tassel from recycled silk ribbon..added more lampwork from my partner, wood, silver beads from the soup...some Czech glass  metal old coin  charms and a lovely green ribbon made by my talented friend Cece...

And a couple of matching earrings with sterling hoops made by me, dyed stone,  wood, silk,  Czech glass and  metal hearts from the soup

*Love is all* earrings

*Turtle love*
 a slow living balancing  healing bracelet 
with heart  and other lovely green and violet lampwork beads by Doris +Hamsa charm and Turtle charm. Stones are fantastic raw Phrenite  rondelle beads...on stretch cord..

*Geisha Love* 
 (enhance Your feminine playful  side)
This pretty little lady need a rather simple design to show her beauty. So I made a choker style  necklace with heavy leather cord, silver beads, waxed linen and a chain in the neck to be adjustable ...+ a little angel wing   (geisha has wings too :-) )

*Peace and Love*  earrings
Clasps is kind of a problem in my designs if in the soups they end up in earrings all the time... Here a little pretty bird toggle clasp  mixed with Doris lampwork, my ceramic heart charm, red porcelain bead from sweet Rey at Greybird studio, handmade cupper beads with silver surface and a peace sign connector..


*Memories from Atlantis* 
Suppose my muse needed something more wild  as this had to be created...with silk ribbons from my soup, ceramic pendant, shell charm and button by myself ..some real shell parts, metal charms  and lots of natural waxed  linen ....

and finally a bunch of earrings :

   Here with violet lampwork beads and silver leaves from the soup + lampwork wheels from my drawers...sterling silver leverbacks

In this pair You find wheel beads from the soup made by Doris and polymer charms by Happy Fish things + mixed beads Czech bone wood ..on silver wires knotted on linen

And finally  those earrings with my tribal ceramic spikes .. wheel beads by Doris, black linen, bone and  Czech glass.. 

And A GIVE AWAY  of course   :-)

Those of You who visited my BSBP  reveals before know I use to have a give-away of some kind. This Year it is this little soup with hand dyed silk ribbon, pearls, crystal, Agate and one of my face pendants. This is a chance to get one of those popular faces as I decided not to sell more of those but to use them in my own jewelry !
Only thing You have to do is leave a comment and tell You are in on this !

  4. Birgitta, I love your jewelry so much! The wild thing is something I must pin and study and admire further, so beautiful, rough but not cruel... Wheel of Talisman inspires me to make something with sari silk, and the earrrings are fun (especially the clasp-thing, clever idea)!
