Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal 2014

Hello!
Welcome to the party!
Lori Anderson's the host of the event and you can find the *entire* list of 0ver 400 participants here, on her blog-
http://www.prettythingsblog.com/2014/05/welcome-to-8th-bead-soup-blog-party.html

My Bead Soup swap partner is Sandy of, http://sandyscoloringbox.blogspot.com
This is what she sent me-


~*Thank you Sandy for sending me what you did!*~

I sure had fun making a bunch of different pieces!

3 sets of earrings, a bracelet and 2 necklaces!

~*~
Earrings!
Using the silver spacers and silver wire.

I made the cupcake beads with polymer clay.




Moon Pie earrings using the green beads that Sandy sent.
I made the moon pie beads with polymer clay.



I LOVE wire wrapping!
Sandy's soup included chocolate/coffee colored beads which inspired this chocolate cake necklace!
There are some green and green/brown beads mixed in there too.






~*~

She signs off on her emails, "Be blessed to be a blessing." 
This is what inspired me to create the focal that says, "Blessings" on it.








 More earrings! 
Using the silver spacers and wire.




I used some of the silver wire to fashion a posable hoop under the dress that I made for the Ddung doll pendant. I used the pretty clasp and some of the green and silver beads that my partner sent me to create the chain. The chain is longer but I shortened it for the photos.



I trimmed her hat and embellished it with a flower that I made from polymer clay and a Swarovski rhinestone in the center.




Blue goldstone is SO pretty!
Sandy sent me one so I used it to cap the pendant and use it to transition to the chain.
I love the way that it sparkles!


~*~
Here is a tiny, faux, tulip in a micro terrarium, bracelet!



The brown beads also reminded me of the earth so I wanted to create a piece, ~*Nature*~ in theme.



 This is what I sent to Sandy!














It was a GORGEOUS day out on Mother's Day!



This is where I took the outdoor pictures, Astoria Park, Queens NYC
