Bead Soup Reveal

First of all I wanted to thank Lori Anderson for organizing this blog hop, it must have been a lot of work and it is definitely appreciated.  Secondly, my list of the blog hop participants looks weird, so I 'm sorry but it was a toss up as to what was smarter - Blogger or myself.  It was not me. 
Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!

What is a Bead Soup Blog Party?

Each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending the following:
~ A focal
~ A special clasp (not just a lobster claw)
~ Some coordinating spacers or beads

Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest, and choose to use the coordinating beads or not.

Here's what I made!


I made the bracelet using the enamel beads and some Gaea beads that I had with some matching seed beads all tied together with a Green Girl Studios clasp.  I had a couple of different ideas for the necklace, but finally I settled on a simple design with some green and white gemstone rounds and wood beads.  I tied a ribbon to the pendant to match the brown of the wood beads.  Plus I am really into tying ribbons onto stuff lately, I don't know why.
