Bead Soup Blog Party-The Reveal

It's blog hop time!

To see a complete list of participants with links to their blogs, click here

Here is a picture of the beads I sent to my partner, Charlene:















Visit her blog here to see what she made!

And here are the beads I received from Charlene:















I only managed to make a necklace....been working way to much lately!
























The pendant and clasp were handmade by Charlene (and are way cool, I love texture!) I chose the bright lampwork glass bumpy beads and used some vintage red glass beads from my stash along with some chain from a vintage necklace. The result is something out of the norm for me, I love bright colors but I just can't seem to make them work. (I think I managed to pull it off this time though.) I really wanted the colors to be the stars of the show so I kept the necklace pretty simple. Now all I need is a nice summer dress to go with it!
Well that's it for now...enjoy the hop!
