Bead soup blog party - the reveal!

Here's the day! It's the Bead Soup Party blog hop!

This is the first time for me and my partner was Carolien of Kralalien. She creates lampwork beads so I was very happy that Lori paired me with her!! :) And I was not disappointed at all when I got my beads! But this doesn't mean It was easy to work with my bead soup ;) I am used to seed beads and bead weaving, bead embroidery techniques, and now I had a bowl of large beads! Here's what I got:

I had some seed beads though (larger than what I usually work with), silver tone metal beads, glass beads in crystal, turquoise and cobalt blue, a beautiful flower clasp (I really really love it!), and lampwork beads made by Carolien herself! They are cobalt blue, turquoise and transparent, with a gorgeous focal bead that reminded me of Turkish Evil Eye beads! I fell in love with this one the moment I saw it (readers of my blog might know that I love Turkey and Istanbul :)

Here's what I cooked :)





They might be simple but I wanted to make something I can wear too -  mostly wear bracelets and earrings. So I created a set that reminds me of Istanbul - a multistrand bracelet with the focal bead and the clasp, and a pair of oriental style earrings with swirled and hammered wire and glass beads that look like a sultan's turban. From my own stash I added some cobalt blue seed beads, some silver seed beads and a few evil eye beads that I brought from Turkey.
I made another pair of earrings too with the swirled glass beads. They are simple but perfect to wear at work :)
I didn't use all the beads yet (because those were too large to include them in the bracelet and too heavy for my ears), I think I will make a necklace from them. Maybe with a bead embroidered pendant :)

I hope Carolien likes what I made from her beads! :)
Here's what she created from my bead soup, I love the set!!

Thank you Carolien for the pretty bead soup and thank you Lori for organizing the game and choosing me to play! :) It's been a lot of fun! And now I'm off to see what others created! :)
