Bead Soup Party.... Revealing all!!!

Here's the link to our Blog Soup Chef
Lori Anderson From her 'index' you can go check out all the recipes on all the guest chef's blogs!

My partner in the bead soup party was Jo from Southampton England....
Daisychain Jewellery

This is the teaser that she posted a couple of days ago... which was quick work since she didn't get my parcel until last Friday! Wish I could hammer that neetly!

This is what I received.....

and this is what I made....

I had fun making this as Carnelian is one of my favorite gem stones... and don't you just love those leaves? An interesting point I hand cut all my rings with a jeweller's saw... often while I'm sitting in ferry line ups or the passenger seat of my husbands truck... I keep trying to tell him that I'm just increasing the value of his truck with all that silver dust in the carpet! SO far he's not buying it....
I actually have made one pair of earrings will see if I can get someone to take a picture of me wearing everything.... (that's in focus!)

Quick note I'm number 71 in the list so that you can keep on track! Here's a list of all the blogs so that you can just keep moving.... I love comments so pleas comment if you visit!

Eileen said...

Cathryn said...

Very creative! That's a fun piece to wear! I love those leaves and how you designed them with carnelian. Gives it an autumn feel completely!

Beadwright said...

Hey!!! Your piece is beautiful. I love it.


*melanie* earthenwood studio said...

Julianna Cannon said...

The chainmaille is perfect with those leaves. Beautifully done!

Drum roll indeed ...beautiful!

Great work! Love the leaves and the carnelian together.

lovely! I love the chainmaille...something I haven't tried yet, but I love seeing what everyone else does with it!

Pretty Things said...

Oh my, I LOVE chain maille, and you did a great job! What a wonderful creation!

Thanks for being a part of the party — we’ll do it again soon!

Michelle Mach said...

Love the chainmaille! You did a beautiful job highlighting those great leaves!

Rickie said...

Such a pretty necklace--delightful!

Susan said...

Beautiful piece! Love your design.

TesoriTrovati said...

Those leaves are so great! I love the chain maille that you did. I took a class at Bead & Button last year and really enjoyed it. Would love to do more. Not that interested in cutting my own rings, though! Thanks for sharing this heaping serving of great soup! Be sure to stop by and taste some of mine. Enjoy the day! Erin

Jenny J-V said...

Lovely! The chainmaille combined with the stones is very cool! Plus, I love the visual of a morning commute with a lapful of silver and tools!! haaaaaaa

Maria said...

Love It! Very creative!

You are welcome to stop by for a cup of “Spring” soup on my blog.

Mary K. McGraw said...

Love the chainmaille and how you put it all together.

Mermaid Glass said...

That turned out so pretty. The chainmaille is gorgeous! I wish I had the patience.

Boot ~C said...

I am in total awe of your chainmaille, beautiful work

EmandaJ said...

Yummo! I adore carnelian -- it is so "warm". Beautiful answer to the modern components with the ancient chainmaile additions.

Hasn't this been fun?


Loretta said...

What a beautiful necklace. You do great work.

Barbara Lewis said...

A beautiful piece. Love the colors and I also am a fan of carnelian. But I bet this piece sings when you walk!

Patty said...

Lynn, this is fabulous! Your chainmaille work is just the right accent to the rest of the piece. Nicely done. :-)

Janet said...

Now that is STUNNING!!! Wow thats really beautiful!!

Julie Nordine . Credit.River.Art.Glass said...

Beautiful, Lynne... you did a wonderful job w/ Jo's soup mix.

Dee said...

oh it the the orange

Nancy said...

I love the leaves on this necklace. The balance of the necklace is just perfect. It is such a lovely piece!

Emma said...

Look at all those rings you created. A beautiful design and so creative... just yummy ;0)

Anonymous said...

I love what you did with the byzantine! So creative!! The colors are amazing. Did you shape the leaves some too? Great work!!

Islandgirl said...

No the leaves were used exactly as I received them... the solder loops were part of them too! I kept taking elements on and off trying to get the perfect balance amongst the 'dangles'!!

Rose Works Jewelry said...

Beautiful :D

Erin said...

Great piece! Love your chain maille work!

Libby Leuchtman said...

Wow just wow, the colors are like the soup I got and I love what you did with yours! You did such a great job.

Patti said...

Beautiful and fun!

Nicki said...

I recently made a necklace that looks quite similar - obviously wothout those pretty leaves and without chainmaille (since I don't have this capabilities). I should send you a picture.

Round Rabbit said...

I love how you worked this necklace out! Very nice! :)

lisa said...

I think you are the only person at the party who did chainmaille! One day i am going to get up my courage and try it. I cut some jump rings for my Party piece, and they were a disaster, so I can't imagine how you do it with a saw in a vehicle - sounds mighty dangerous, even if not moving. Love your final product. Bravo to you!

Lynette said...

Beautiful, bright and cheery! Love it...

Anonymous said...

very pretty design!

SueBeads said...

Wow, very nice! Love the chainmaille!

Regina said...

Beautiful, great necklace. Lots of warm color, with the silver leaves. It's thanksgiving! Lovely!

Cindy said...

What a goreous necklace! And I love that you used chainmaille - sure made your piece one of a kind. I would really like to try my hand and learn how to do that some day too!
