Bead Soup Reveal

My partner Carolyn (http://www.carolynchenault.wordpress.com) and I are in the first reveal group for Bead Soup.
 See earlier post (http://goodtogojewelry.blogspot.com/2013/02/bead-soup-2013_11.html) on how this Bead Soup thang works.

Although the challenge only requires you to use the focal and clasp from the gifted soup; I made it my challenge to use all the components and beads Carolyn sent to me. I did not add anything from my stash, except the stringing component.

I love the personal touches in my soup:  the M glass charm, the 13 (for bead soup 2013) head pin,  the handcrafted glass headpins, focal and clasp.

I was able to work all these into a natural, beachy necklace.  I am looking forward to wearing it; now that it has been revealed!

  39. You used all the beads and wound up with something that still doesn't look cluttered. It absolutely reminds me of the beach and something you might find washed up on the sand. It's really beautiful!
