Today is reveal day, I can’t wait to see what my partner Cris Peacock made with her soup along with what everyone else has made. I really had a lot of fun with mine and had a few challenges along the way. I got three pieces of jewelry that I really like and have beads left to make earrings but since I don’t wear them I decided to wait on that.
I first made the necklace using that neat little birdnest. I wouldn’t normally mix gold in my pieces but I decided to give it a try and love how it turned out.
Next I wanted to try a multilayered bracelet. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to get three pieces all the same length but eventually I got there.
I liked the look of the first bracelet so decided I would make another one but first I decided to patina my chain, then I had some little copper tubes that I had cut but I thought they needed a bit of color so I patinaed them too. Since I made wired segments with my beads this one don’t lay quite as good as the first one so I may have to redo it.
Be sure to check how Cris used her bead soup from me here: http://crispart.blogspot.com/ and you can also check out her Etsy shop here: http://crispart.etsy.com/
I want to thank Lori for hosting the hop again this year and I want to also thank Cris for being my partner and sending me a beautiful soup to work with. Have fun hoping.
