7th Bead Soup Blog Party 3rd Reveal

Well it's finally here 3rd reveal for Bead Soup Blog Party
So here's a reminder of the soup I received from my partner Lili here and you can visit Lilli's blog post here

It really wasn't clear what I should use for a focal and I really struggled with this box of goodies. So I went simple.

I gathered the red black and white lampies and a pretty clasp added some czech druks and wire and came up with this simple necklace

For the focal I picked the orange clay beads and added some small glass beads from the box to create this long necklace
then I took the focal made from crystals and tiger eye to string on more tiger eye beads

I attempted to make a necklace with the head using a spiral weave but it just didn't flow together.
I took the photos in my friends garden this afternoon and not sure if they've come up well.

Anyway to visit the rest of the blogs go to this list on Lori Anderson's Blog here where you can work your way through the list all in one place.
Happy blog hopping everyone!
