7th Bead Soup Blog Party -- FIRST REVEAL!

Hello everybody!  I am so excited, it is time for me to show you what I made with my bead soup in Lori Anderson's fun Bead Soup Party!!!  I am part of the first reveal group.

First, here is the bead soup I received from my partner Grace Rotenberg ~


It was a colorful mixture of milifloral glass beads, other glass beads, some ceramic beads, and a few metal components, including a piece from an old bracelet.


I added lots of wire, some other metal components, and satin rat tail cording and went to town creating some jewelry that I will be giving to an artsy friend.  I was able to make a necklace, bracelet, and earrings for this set ~


The bracelet ~


The necklace ~


the earrings ~


I sent Grace some various pearl, glass, porcelain,  and shell beads, with some vintage earrings thrown in for fun.  I love to cut up vintage earrings and incorporate them into mixed media projects and jewelry, and since Grace makes beautiful steampunk style jewelry I thought she might be able to do the same.  Can't wait to see what she creates!
 Here is the bead soup I sent ~ one organza bag holds the beads and one holds the vintage earrings ~





a few vintage earrings ~ 



I have linked the master list for you to view here ~

pamala said...

I used gold jumprings and silver wire that I coiled to tie everything together. No specific technique, just some playing and experimenting. :)

Nice sense of movement with all the wire swirls - and the colors are all so happy!

Oh, and I also love that you sent your partner the vintage earrings. I'm playing around with some on my desk at the moment as well! ;)

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
