Wow!  A big shout out to Lori Anderson for organizing another fantabulous Bead Soup - one that grew to momentous proportions - and she kept all of us going in the same direction flawlessly!  The rules were to send a focal, a clasp, and other beady goodness to your partner, and then make something using the focal and the clasp as a minimum.

I was paired with the wonderful and generous Linda of Linda Landig Fine Artisen Jewelry.   She sent me some incredible ingredients, that you can see here.

I started right away with the gorgeous ceramic focal from Off Center Productions - I love that color green.  My goal for 2011 is to push further than simple stringing.  There is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with stringing, it's my bread and butter, but I want to push myself to use new techniques and make things more interesting, while still making something that fits the BFBG aesthetic.  That's a fancy pants way of saying, "something I would wear."  I felt like the unique bail of the focal called for leather or ribbon or something soft.  The leather I had wouldn't fit, but I had a little bit of silk ribbon that, when strung through the wooden loops, looked like it was made to go together.  I added the ceramic rondelles and tiger eye beads and the wonderful leaf clasp and all was right with the world.


Linda sent me oodles of other great beads, and here are some other things I made:



I did say GIVEAWAY, and I meant it.  Going with the theme of using focals and clasps from our Bead Soup partners, I have assembled a couple clasps and a couple focals and some cool neoprene washers that will be fun to play with.  It's easy peasy to win, just leave a comment on this post.  Seriously.  It can even be "Gimme Gimme Gimme."  I'll draw names on Monday night, February 28th.

  45. Sooo many beautiful pieces! Great job!
    I also used to do a lot of stringing over 2 years ago, but then I tried bead embroidery and fell madly in love with it. I still make occasional strung pieces for myself and my loyal customers. But I believe it's always great to try something new! And the result can be very interesting and unexpected. Good luck! ;)

  102. Gracious, your pieces are all so amazing! While I love the colors in your first piece (they're my go-to colors), I found myself really drawn to your orange-y necklace. Weird. I'm not usually an orange person. You are just THAT GOOD!
