8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Hop-Beads Received!

Am excited to say that I've rec'd my bead soup from my partner Ghislaine Kruse-Van Erp, from Fischer, TX! Here is some info from Ghislaine's blog that tells you about her and the different mediums that she has used to create pieces of art.
"Growing up with a fiber arts teacher as a mother, I started learning the fundamentals of textile art at a very young age. I have always felt the need to push the limits of this medium. In my search for items that would translate to something that can be seen or used in everyday life, I went from making rugs and wall hangings to creating containers and baskets and finally jewelry. Every step along the way, I worked smaller and smaller while translating fiber art techniques into techniques I could use with metals and gemstones. Current favorite techniques include crochet, tapestry weaving and basket weaving."

...stay tuned for pictures...waiting for the battery on my phone to finish charging! :)
Here are the promised pictures! Ghislaine tells me that the reddish tube beads and the red round beads are coral and that the other beads are Picasso beads, which she says are one of her favorite types of beads...found that most interesting, as I, too love them!! The pendant is 'agate', wire-braided in copper and is just sooo beautiful, I just love it too!

the other half, plus...!
a lovely, lovely pendant...that Ghislaine wrapped herself...isn't she talented? :)

  1. I totally forgot I never commented on your lovely post! It has been a busy couple of weeks, but I have my post for tonight ready!
    I am so happy you like my beads and I can not wait to see what you did with them!
    Sadly I won't be able to go and check your reveal right away, I have a market again tomorrow so it's early bed-time!
    I will 'hop in' during the market to see what you posted!
    Warmest Greetings!
