It’s time again for the Bead Soup Blog Party, hosted by Lori Anderson. I don’t really know how she does it, she has health issues but keeps plugging away. Thanks to Lori and to her husband and her helpers who made this work yet again this year!
Usually I stress about what beads or components I’m going to add to the soup to make bunches of things, and I decided I don’t really like that stress. I wanted to stress a different way – use only what she sent me, other than whatever I was going to use to string. I did a pretty good job, I think. I was inspired by a necklace I saw in a magazine some time ago, an assymetrical necklace that used the toggle clasp in the front for the focal.
The pretty ceramic focal hangs off the round part of the toggle clasp, in the front of the necklace.
I used a lot of the beads to make an assymetrical design, and used silver chain as well.
I do have a few beads left, and was going to make a bracelet as well, but came down with bronchitis for two weeks and just couldn’t do it! Thank you to Rochelle for providing me with this pretty soup! You can hop today and see what everyone else made by visiting their blogs listed below! Don’t feel like you have to do it all in one day, there are a lot of blogs to visit!
