SOUP'S ON!!!

 






My very first Bead Soup!




Yummy!  Lots of lovely beads from  Pam Sandy   http://pamseclecticstuff.blogspot.com/





She sent me a really fun collection of vintage parts, too.  I'll post more when I get time to work with them.


I have to admit, I was in a bit of a rush because I'm right in the middle of Passover.  I wish I could have had more time, so please forgive the wonky formatting in this entry.

How cute are those earrings?  I have a leopard print faux fur jacket, and they'll look darling together.




The necklace worked out really cute, too.  When in doubt, always put the toggle in the front, and make a tassel!  The beads are mostly earthy elements of pearl, shell, tiger's eye and Indian lampwork.  Using silver instead of gold or bronze brightens the whole look, and makes it more light and updated for Spring and Summer.

I'm excited to see what Pam makes with the beads I sent, but I'll have to wait until after Shabbos.

Please leave lots of comments and feedback! :-D  I'll do the same as soon as I can.  Thanks!

Fun and pretty necklace. I can see wearing that with all kinds of different outfits. Once I looked at your Soup I scrolled through some of your older posts. Steam punk jewelry, no poo, lipstick and turkey soup, wow! I'm going to have to come back when I have more time :-)
