Bead Soup Blog Hop ~ Reveal
Welcome Blog Hopping Friend! I appreciate you dropping by to see what I have created. I tend to be a wordy writer but I know you have many stops to make on this bead journey so I will try keep my comments short today. 
This is what I received from my partner Shanti Johnson. Lovely, bright, free-spirited and well out of my comfort zone. :-D

The main creation, with the big beautiful peacock feather focal and the copper leaf toggle clasp. From the soup I used the leaf beads, the green & orange faceted crystals, the sari silk and the I added the large link copper chain and the aqua crystals from my stash.
 [In the pic on the right I removed the orange peace sign charm for a different look.]


Earrings to match....

I loved the look of these dyed coral sticks, so they became a 3 strand free form bracelet and earrings 
(to match of course!)

What to do with the leather cord? and all those fun but random bits? Add some turquoise colored wooden beads and a few peace signs to create a youthful charm necklace.

Loved the 'orange sherbet' look of these crystals

The bits I had left over..... 

Thanks to Lori Anderson for allowing me to participate, Thanks to Shanti Johnson for being so generous and thanks to YOU for visiting. 

If you leave I comment I thank you in advance. :-)

I would LOVE to have you as a follower to my blog and I will return the favor if you let me know.

  7. OK, in your bio you say you're a baby of the '60s. I can so see that in your pieces :-). I love the peacock necklace - it's got such a care-free, laid-back, and too cool vibe - and the use of peace signs. Every piece seems so sunny and happy - if that makes any sense. They wouldn't look out of place at Woodstock, or Glastonbury. Great work!

  8. Amazing how removing the orange peace charm changes the whole look. Love your work.

  50. Your necklace is so very lovely and what a fortuitous coincidence that you have used a peacock feather.... I have MANY feathers and was walking by them the other day thinking I should use them in some jewelry. You have inspired me to work with them now. Thank you for your wonderful comment on my blog, you really should work out of Denise's book. I'd love to see what you create!
