Here is my bead soup creation. My husband remarked that its different then what I usually create but I love it. For me, the whole idea of a mystery bead soup mix is to push yourself into new places to see what happens.
The beautiful beads I received from my partner, Lisa, had a vintage quality to them and the focal, in contrast, was more contemporary and highly textural. I sat with the beads and mulled around ideas until I came up with this. I was inspired by a fellow designer, Blynn of Recklace Necklace, who uses vintage elements in her work. I had bunches of these metal flowers laying around and at the last minute decided to use one as a focal.
I hope you like what I did with my lovely bead soup mix. This was great fun and really pushed me. I hope to be part of another Bead Soup party in the future!
