Without Further Adieu, My Bead Soup!

My Bead Soup is sooo late! My partner is Suzann Sladcik Wilson of Beadphoria. Suzann was more than generous with the Bead Soup she sent to me! Honestly, I struggled with the pieces I made.With the huge selection of beads Suzann sent me I fund myself having a hard time deciding what to use. I really wanted to maake something amazing since this was the first time I had ever participated in the Bead Soup Swap. Unfortunatley, I had a few set backs that lead me to posting late. I am so sorry and I hope all of can for give me but my little boy had to come first. So without further adieu here is my creation!

Lori Anderson said...

LOVELY colors -- I like those tangled wire beads, did you make those or were they in the soup?

KayzKreationz said...

Very pretty. I really like the twisted wire beads and all the texture in your piece. Your earrings are very unique. Great job for your first bead soup. You can check out my pieces if you like at http://KayzKreationz.blogspot.com

Shaiha said...

I just love that necklace. You took a lot of different textures and made them play very nicely together.

Penny Neville said...

It looks very industrial! Very cool lots of texture and different elements involved. Glad to hear your son is feeling better. Family comes first!

Kepi said...

Very pretty, great designs. Great job!

Tabatha D. said...

I made them Lori. I am obsessed with steel wire thanks to Cassie Donlen. She made some bracelets out of it and I have been hooked ever since.

Tabatha D. said...

I definitely will check your soup out tonight. I have a lot of hopping to do! Thanks for the positive feedback!

Karen Mitchell said...

Great designs. Love your wire beads, gives the design some great texture.

Tabatha D. said...

Thanks everyone for all the positive feedback. I was really nervous about my first Bead Soup creation. I am new to this so I was worried that it wouldnt be as great as all the things I have looked at from the past Bead Soup Swaps. Thanks for making me feel welcome. Time to start hopping!

A Half-Baked Notion said...

When I read in your last post about your cruising all those blogs and becoming confused, I recognized myself. You have done a wonderful job creating a set that looks cutting-edge while remaining understated. That sounds like an intricate path to follow.

Good for you for letting this blog hop proceed in the manner best for you and your family, Tabatha. I believe real art is difficult to force into a time frame. Continue to create as you are inspired, and without apology!

I absolutely love the necklace & completely understand about getting too much to know what do use but what a problem to have right :)

Marlene Cupo said...

This hop is soooo long, out of breath trying to get through it! Industrial chic. Love it!

Elizabeth Beads said...

Beautiful job, thanks for sharing!

susan sheehan said...

Your wire wrapping is awesome. What fun pieces. I love your style and have a feeling a tiny piece of you will seep into my future designs.

fay ................................................... said...

Very edgy & different.. Love the tangles.. I use them a lot & call them osprey nests..Great job!!

CraftyHope said...

I really like what you created and that I stopped back by to check it out. Nice job!

Christine said...

Very cool look - love the tangled wire beads!!
