BSBP Bead Hoarders Edition- Reveal

Hi and welcome to the Bead Soup Blog Party Bead Hoarders Edition- Reveal, hosted by the wonderful Lori Anderson.

I had 3 partners this year, it was so much fun chatting with all of them and getting to know them. They sent me the most awesome hoarded beads!

My first Partner is Kathleen Breeding of 99 Bottles of Beads on the Wall

Here is what I sent to Kathleen:

And what she sent to me (and my kitty)

And what I made with Kathleen's beads
I patined the Vintaj Brass peacock piece and added a vintage cabochon and holes for dangles at the bottom. This design is roughly based on a Art Nouveau Sautoir

My second Partner is Terry Carter of TappingFlamingoBling

Here is what I sent to Terry

And what she sent to me

And what I made with Terry's beads
I have had the lapis zuni bear bead in my stash since 1998, he was a gift from my Sister and I never found the right project for him until Terry's handmade button arrived. I turned the button into a clasp.

My third Partner is Brenda Ballou
Here is what I sent to Brenda

And what she sent to me

And what I made with Brenda's beads
I reformed the copper pendant into a cuff adding holes on either side for beads. I also patined the copper and added a touch of color to the Robin's breast.
