Welcome to the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party ® 3rd and Final Reveal!

This was my second year participating in the BSBP. My beautiful partner was JuLee Wolfe. She is an amazing designer with polymer clay. She sent me the wonder bounty of beads below.

An Assortment of greenery. 

While I was making my three designs, I wanted to make so much more, but I started getting ill and had to stop playing in the beads.. The illness turned out to be something very shocking and unexpected. I am sure the photograph below will show what it turned out to be.

Due Dec 20th

Well below are the three designs I have made. I would like to thank JuLee for the beautiful beads. I loved them and plan to use my left overs for an wall art.

 Pendant is from Marie of More Skye Jewels.  And random glass bell flowers and leaves. The pendant is a tree and I believe it suited the greenery theme that JuLee started.

Copper chain and the leaf toggle sent by JuLee. I loved the clasp and wish I could have horded it. 

 I used a simple sari silk  ribbon and tied it to her smaller focal wire wrapped a owl half way up one side and made a very simple necklace. This was made when my nausea and irritability started.

Last are the earrings that I made first. They are completely simple and used head pins from Marie, and earwires from Patti. My photo graphs are rushed and I apologize that they are not grand like most of the ones I see.

Thank you to Lori Anderson for hosting and allowing me to join the 7th BSBP. I am looking forward to the 8th. :) Have a wonderful hop!!
