This is my first Bead Soup Blog party. I was feeling very nervous to start. There are so many talented ladies out there, how could I compare. But the satisfaction of sharing your experience, even if its little in comparison, and knowledge is matched with meeting new people from around the world. Listening to them, chatting with them and forming new friendships. I had a ball.
When I opened by packaged from Stefanie it was like Christmas had returned. She sent me 2 focal beads. A glass heart and a clay oval. Along with shells, pearls, ribbon and the most gorgeous paper beads. I have looked at paper beads before and though ... hmm must try that but never have. They are gorgeous and have now been moved up my Bucket list :) So here we go -
Using the gorgeous range of paper beads this chunky bracelet has organza ribbon threaded through the black chain. The paper beads complemented nicely with the selection of shells and pearls that match the paper beads perfectly.
The clay focal pendant necklace
The clay pendant was a gorgeous of work to start with so adding something that would capture this was hard. I chose to wire wrap with pearls and then add the ribbon for extra glamour. The necklace is hung on chain and close with the toggle I was sent.
Organza and wire necklace
Using the glass focal heart as the centre piece then adding a dimension with the wire and shells. Then using an assortment of paper and glass beads with the ribbon for added uniqueness.

Made with paper beads and discs made out of I assume is polymer clay.
Aren't they just cute.
And a Key chain.
