Bead Soup Party Reveal

Today is the day for the reveal of my Bead Soup Party necklace!
Be sure and go over to Lori’s blog and check out all the jewelry artist’s blogs.  There are so many participating in this party that the party hop will go on for a week!  Everyday a new set of artists will reveal their creations.
You can also go the the Flickr page where most participants will be posting pictures also.
My partner for the Bead Soup Party was Janet from Singing Woods Blog.  Go check out her blog.  She sent me a selection of beads from the wonderful ceramic artist Gaia.
This is what I got in the mail from Janet, in case you forgot or missed that post……
Here is what i created with the bead soup I received……
The chain to the left of the pendant is made by me out of copper and sterling silver wire, soldered together for links.
I did ribbon at the back of the necklace.  I have done this on a few necklaces lately and found it to be very comfortable, and I thought that ribbon was perfect for the focal.
I had a few beads left over to make some matching earrings also.
Hope you like what I made Janet!
Don’t forget to check out everyone’s blog and see all the wonderful creations!

  1. It looks great Kimberly! I agree, the ribbon really is comfortable to wear. My favorite part of this necklace is the creative cicle chain you made with the little dangles off of it! It's a great summer necklace.

  2. Hi Kimberly,

    Don't you just LOVE Gaia's beads? Great job on the necklace. You blog is so much fun too. I'm also a quilter.

  3. Just beautiful! I love the ribbon; I've never done that but will try it out — it complements the beads and the design perfectly. And your chain is great, too… I've been wanting to learn how to solder and I think this pushed me over the edge!

  4. What a lovely soup to recieve and you certainly did it justice. It is perfect for the summer. And your mixed link chain is so clever, I'm am in awe of all you accomplished metal workers.

    You are so right about fabric on the back of the neck , my soup rveal is quite weight but the fibre cording on the back of the neck makes it very comfy when worn.

  5. Very pretty necklace. Awesome job soldering the circles together yourself, artist-made chain is always the most interesting :). I also like the ribbon you picked… excellent contrast with the darker colours to the pastels. Great job!

  6. That ribbon is gorgeous with the focal! What a find! And now you make me want to go solder something…I want to try some chain and I love that you mixed the metal for yours. Take care!! Jen

  7. I love how you pulled the spring colors of the pendant out so delicately in the necklace. The entire necklace has a delicate spring feel to it! Wonderful.
