8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Hop Revel!

Well, it's time for the 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Hop Revel, sponsored by Lori Anderson of Pretty Things! So excited to see what my partner, Ghislaine has created with the bead soup that I sent to her. From what I've seen on her blog, she is one talented gal! Her blog can be found at I certainly enjoyed working with the beautiful bead soup that I rec'd from Ghislaine. :)
Am also anticipating visiting many blogs and seeing what has been done with all the beads that have been sent to each of the participants in the Blog Hop!
Ghislaine was most generous with the soup that she sent to me and I was able to get two necklaces with earrings and a bracelet with earrings out of all of the beads...with only a tiny bit leftover...:)
Here is what I started with...

Ghislaine made the jump rings and clasps and braided around the pendant!

...And here is what I created. Hope you enjoy seeing them. :)

The coral dangles gives the earrings that 'pop'!

Used the burgundy pearls in this piece.
The bracelet turned out better than I'd hoped, even though it was a lot of work! :)

I added some resin roses here...

Added Red Tigers Eye to some of the beads that Ghislaine sent to me, thought they complimented the pendant beautifully! 

The tiny bit of beads leftover from what was sent to me.

Below is the link to Lori's blog where you can find the list for everyone who is taking part in the 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party...enjoy!
