Bead Soup and The luck of the draw...

I was chosen by the luck of the draw to participate in the 5th Bead Soup Blog Party. My Partner Lori who's blog can be found here lorisglassworks.blogspot.com sent me these goodies.....




I enjoy participating in these types of challenges because I have to work with the items sent. And as a jewelry artist I tend to like,use  and purchase things that appeal to me which is okay because that's my style and I enjoy making things that show a little of who I am and what I like. But this helps me so much to leave the comfort of which I am used to.

So I am working with Ukanite beads,Cherry Quartz (which I Love!!),glass pearls,some glass beads and silver spacers.  I have had about a thousand different ideas of what to do and I keep changing my mind. For any swap or jewelry challenge I donate the piece or pieces I make to different, local fund raisers. I have never kept a piece for myself. But with the cherry quartz I may be tempted to be greedy this time.

Oh and this is what I sent to Lori....






These things are all my style,both soldered pendants and the vintage button pendant were made by me and I added some vintage luctie beads,crystal,glass and ceramic beads too. So as you can see the difference is huge in materials and styles. So please wish me luck that I make something worthy so that a local charity would even consider using the piece I make to raise funds. See you at the reveal!!!
