Getting ready for Bead Soup was just the kick in the pants I needed to work on some other projects...
These square beads my husband and daughter put in my stocking at Christmas. Bone maybe? They look heavy but aren't too bad.
I love the rustic chain with the square Swarovski crystals.
This pair of feather were made by the amazing Marcie at La Bella Joya. They are delicate and amazing, so I just added a peridot crystal to the ear wire and let Marcie's incredible work shine.
Isn't that moon pendent amazing? This necklace belongs to my friend Cindy. I didn't take a before picture, but if you can imagine the entire necklace of the white stones that's what it looked like, and Cindy found it a bit heavy and clunky. I showed her two patterns, and she decided she liked it asymmetrical. I had a bunch of malachite that needed to be used. It was a win win!
I already posted this picture on Intsgram and Facebook, but I am delighted with how it came out. The links I bought from The Gatchellville Store at the last Art Bliss, and the clasp is from Lorelei Eurto's Tin Snippets collection. I decided to use it as a focal instead.
