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!
