It’s time for the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal! Here is what I made from the beads my parter Marta Grabalowska sent me. Her blogs are http://galeriakota.blogspot.com/ and http://wilkmademe.tumblr.com/.
My bead soup was not my typical color palate and I consider that a good thing! I realized that I had some pink seed beads in my stash that I thought I would never use. They were almost identical to the ones in the soup. I mixed them with beige and tan beads of a similar value and threw in some turquoise beads to make a bead crochet pattern. I used the remaining beads as embellishment.
The copper clasp holds the rope closed. I beaded around the focal cameo and went for an asymmetrical look. I am very happy with the result. Thank you Marta!!!
Here are some more pictures.
Thank you Lori Anderson for making another great beading experience possible!! You can find a list of all the participants on Lori’s blog.
