Bead Soup Blog Party!

Sorry for the short, delayed post, I'm having some technical difficulties, just the perfect end to the perfect week. I stepped into the twilight zone on Sunday...and I'm not too certain I ever left.  Long story short, I finally got photo uploads to work, but no links as of yet.

Anywhoo....who wants to party?
Bead Soup Blog Party! Hosted by Lori Anderson of www.prettythingsblog.com decided it was time for another BSBP, and I couldn't pass it up.

What I received from Cheri Reed of www.creativedesignsbycheri.blogspot.com:
Based on the signature on the back, I believe the ceramic pendant and beads are from Gaea of www.Gaea.cc, also included were some blue Czech crystals.


What I made:


What it looks like on me...'cause I'm keeping it, thanks Cheri.
I really don't string much, mostly because I have a tendency to hurt myself with jeweler's tools, for me needle and thread are much safer. However, I made several attempts at other designs but kept coming back to this:

I added glass pearls, Tiaria crystals, and Cultured Sea Glass from www.znetshows.com. After looking at it here, I think it needs some mermaid's treasures...

This is what I sent Cheri:


I can't post the list, and my links don't spear to work currently, so I'll have to update this post later using another device. If you'd like to hop along with us, Lori has the list up on her blog that I mentioned at the top, which you can copy and paste to your browser.

Happy hopping!

  13. I think it works perfectly! The beads you used totally helped pull out all the colors in the pendant. And so MANY Znet beads! ;) I hate that you had problems posting, but it looks great. Here's hoping your twilight zone issues get resolved (or not, whatever works!)
