8th Bead Soup Blog Party!!!

Hello and welcome to the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party. My partner this time is the very talented Jacqueline Marchant  please stop by her blog and check out what yummies she has made with my soup.
When I first saw the big box of goodies that she had sent to me I was a bit nervous, how am I going to use
all of these goodies. photos of her soup to me below. here is what I made with a very small part
of my soup.
This set I call the Jay Bird. I used a focal bead from my Zen-Doodle Series
with some bronze chain and small glass beads in iris brown that I had added a nice touch to the yummy bird beads that were in my soup, the stone bead were also in my soup, I think they pick up the goldstone well that is in the focal. finally my signiture murrini is a Persian letter J. Hence the name. 

 Here is the other side of the focal.
 This set I call Elephant Keys. the charms the green stones, the clasp and all the findings were all from my yummy soup. I only added the leather cords, the necklace has two cords, held together with one clasp, however they are at different levels, makes for an interesting visual. love this one.
and a close up. 
This is the soup that I got from my partner Jacqueline, I was so worried and still am that I will never be able to use all of it. 
This is the soup I sent to my partner Jacqueline, thanks for looking everyone, be sure to visit her blog and all the other participants listed below. Thanks to Lori Anderson, Hostess
thanks for stopping by.

TesoriTrovati said...

Holy moly! That is a LOT of soup ingredients! I think she must have robbed a bead store and sent the evidence to you for safekeeping! ;-)
I do so love your work, Miss Jelveh. That focal bead is mighty special. So intricately detailed that it needs little embellishment to make it sing! And from a skeleton key junkie (and mother of an elephant junkie!) I do love the hip boho feel of that necklace too! Thank you for sharing your creations with the 8th Bead Soup. Enjoy the day! Erin

Ann Schroeder said...

Your soup necklaces are great! Your focal bead is wonderful, and the elephant key necklace is such fun. Wow, that is a lot of soup. You'll have to pace yourself!

Dawn Williams said...

I love what you did with the sweet little birds. What a great soup.

Janice said...

Wow, that's a lot of soup! It might take a while to use it up. lol those are some great designs. Fun and a touch of whimsy. I love both the little jay bird set and the elephant keys.

Beautiful creations! The Jay Bird set is beautifully assembled and color coordinated. You have used the same colors in the other set but you've found a different way to accent the focal with charms and a key that looks like a found object!

Holy moley, you did receive a ton of 'soup' from your partner. I'm glad you kept it simple and down to two sets for the reveal. Both of which are really lovely! I especially like the elephant keys. Excellent work! :)
