Bead Soup Mix Reveal...

Oh my gosh, I nearly forgot about this day! So, here it is!  My soup mix.  I am really hoping that I gave my jewelry the tropical feeling that Kelly was looking for when she sent me this mix.  Kelly has great taste in beads. It did take me some time to figure out what I was going to do.  I made a sketch and had it all ready to go.  I put my book down and about 2 weeks later I couldnt find it..go figure!  So, I tried to remember what the sketch looked like and got to work.

First I made the necklace.  I had this vintage necklace with white glass beads that I thought would look nice.  I took apart the necklace, it had blue and orange tiny plastic beads along with tiny metal beads.  I thought I would reuse those, but the colors really didnt go quite that well together.  So I headed for the bead store and found the ones I wanted.  I put the necklace together and thought it turned out really nice.  Later I made a pair of earrings to match.  When I wear both pieces the earrings barely touch my necklace and they make this really soothing sound when I walk around..LOL

Oh, I did find my sketch, and it was slightly different than what I actually made...but I like it either way.

THANK YOU KELLY for the great mix of beads..  I hope you like what I created with them...

I used every bead I was given for this mix, you see how beautiful the colors blend.  

I think this mix definitely says...TROPICAL PARADISE
