Waiter! There's a Bead in My Soup!


 


My partner * sent me fine bead soupery


With bead clasps made with super loopery.


The beads were so pretty





'Twould be a great pity
To hide them with too much beaucoup-pery.



I wrapped and I strung and I fiddled


Made sure that the focal was middled.


What I found quite tricky,
(It's where  it got sticky:)
For sari silk, holes are soooo littled.





So here are my bead soup creations,
Divine in their fine colorations.


My partner and Lori
In all of their glory
Deserve thanks and appreciation.

 



 




* My partner for this 8th Bead Soup is the suprememly talented Elisabeth Auld, of http://www.beadsforbusygals.com/. She not only makes jewelry; she creates gorgeous lampwork beads, as you can see.

Now go forth and do some blog hoppery
To see treasures silver and coppery
With baubles and beadies
And even bead seedies
There's so much to see, it's non-stoppery.

  1. Your creations are very cute (and good idea to keep it simple and let the beads do the talking). I like the way all the colours go together - you have an eye for colour!

  35. The wire work necklace is my favorite - the beads and copper wire combo looks beautiful. I like the earrings, especially the first pair! And I always admite the use of other materials - the ribbon with the focal looks great! Compliments on the little beady poem :)

  36. Hi Eleanor, The stories that you write are very imaginative and they add greatly to your jewelry. My favorite is the lighter colored bead from Elizabeth that you wire wrapped the squares with. I also really like the earrings with the bear fetish and blue beads. Great job using your soup.
