BEAD SOUP REVEAL DAY

The time has come to reveal the fruits of our labor from the soup mix we received from our partners. My partner was Linda Murphy of Bonita Bead. I have a cousin with the same name, and immediately when I saw her name in the first list, I went to her blog to see if she was my cousin from CA. Well, it turned out she was not, but I have found another sweet friend through the Bead Soup Party. Thanks, Linda, for the beautiful soup mix you sent, and for becoming my friend. I pray we have a lifelong friendship! God Bless You!

Here is the soup mix that Linda sent:






And, here is what I created with that soup mix:


I love the toggle clasp she sent, and I just had to put it on the bracelet so I would be able to enjoy it every time I wore it!



Now, the focal bead she sent was very special. It is a gorgeous aromatherapy vessel. She had read my blog and found out I was having back trouble and thought I could use some healing scents like lavender oil, and this little vessel is the way to go!  I looked at a lot of these on different websites just to check them out, but I honestly don't think I saw any as beautiful as this one! I kind of went crazy with my pictures of it, but I did want you to see it from all angles.  It is a graceful glass swirl of color!

Linda was very generous with some other beautiful beads which are on the bead table waiting for me to put the many ideas I have into actual creations.  As I stated above, this continuous back pain is the reason why the rest of her beads are waiting for me. It is so painful to sit.  Have you ever tried making any kind of piece of jewelry flat of your back? It is difficult, believe me! So, when I have another good day or two, I will be at that table bringing to life the ideas in my head!

  14. Hi Lisa,
    This is the first chance I have had to look at your soup. It was worth the wait. I love your designs. Both the necklace and bracelet look fabulous. I love how you used the ribbon and chain together. I feel so bad about your back pain. I feel terrible that it is preventing you from making more jewelry. We are missing out on some great designs from you. Get better soon. I know we will be friends forever bound by our first bead soup blog party. P.S. I cannot wait to start looking at the other blogs. Are you having fun? Hopefully it will keep you mind off of your pain.
    Love, Linda

  27. Lovely jewellery! I like how the ribbon adds a sweet and elegant touch to the design -- as well as add an air of spring (which sounds perfect for a vessel like that). Fab job!

  32. Your bead soup is incredible! I want one of those amazing aromatherapy vessels. I'm actually going to try to save up for one and create a necklace with it because as you read on my site, I have quite a lot of health issues and I've dabbled with essential oils and aromatherapy and love it :)

    I must say your pieces are truly incredible. You did your soup and it's wonderful components justice!
