Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal Day

IT IS FINALLY BSBP REVEAL DAY!
 Lori Anderson of Lori Anderson Designs started a Bead Soup Blog Party.  Lori invited those interested to sign up to be partnered with someone that would exchange a stash of beads with their partner.  The stash of beads had to include a focal bead and an interesting clasp.  This invitation was on Lori's blog called Pretty Things.  The idea was to get beads from our partner that we would not have chosen to work with and make something from them and blog about what we were doing.  The point of the party is to get out of our own creative box and to meet other jewelry creators.  It has been an awesome month of looking at the stashes of beads that were received and getting to know other creative bloggers.  I have enjoyed it so much!  I have a really cool partner Jacinta Meyers who writes the Jamberrysong's Creations blog. She also has a great Etsy Shop that you need to check out!   She is number 102 on the list below.  Jacinta sent me a great stash of different beads and found objects to work with...  really different from the polymer clay beads that I have been making and using in the jewelry that I create.  Thank you Jacinta!   It has been fun getting to know you and I love your work!  Hers is the first blog that I will check out today to see what she did with what I sent to her!

My stash from Jacinta Meyers!
Of course the chocolate is all gone by now.... and I did not use all of the wonders that she sent to me.  I did use alot of them though.  I showed my Friday Bead Friends what I made and they loved it!  I hope that you will love it too!
TADA!
It is definitely one of a kind!
Lockets and keys tell a story all of their own!
Eclectic!
 Soft and pretty yet a little steampunk in there too!
This clasp is so pretty!
I have had so much fun participating in the Bead Soup Blog Party held by Lori Anderson!  Thank you so much Lori!  I know you worked so hard to organize this event... as you shared in your blog Aftermath of Bead Soup Blog Party Signup. ( This blog is hilarious and worth looking at!)
