It is finally here-reveal day! I'm excited to show you what I made with the lovely bead soup sent by my new friend, Dee Clark. This is the first time I participated in the Bead Soup Blog Hop and I'm here to tell you that I'm sorry I missed it before. It has been so much fun visiting other blogs to see not only what they sent and received but to find lots of wonderful blogs and have the chance to meet new creative people.
This is the soup I received from Dee...
The soup I received from Dee was beautiful and a departure from what I would normally choose to work with. It has made me more aware that it good to try new things-there is always something to be learned. While visiting Dee's blog I noticed that she does viking knit. I have wanted to learn this technique for a long time and this gave me the push I needed to stop putting it off and just do it!
The lovely mix of Dee's handmade glass beads and ceramic focal called for something special to set them off and I think the viking knit chain did just that.
Dee sent such wonderful mixture that I wanted to use a few more beads.
So this is the second necklace I made using the green poppy jasper and a few of the seed beads.
Hope you like my necklaces!
Now I'm off to see what you made!
