BSBP Reveal!!

I had so much to work with that I could have made a ton of pieces, but I decided to mash up a bit my two soups.

First things first. The two focal pieces I had to work with.


As soon as I saw this bead, the one Silke sent me, I knew that it was perfect for the silk ribbon Yvette sent. I just had two put a couple of silver caps and silver beads to finish off the ribbon and the piece was done. Such lovely colours and textures. Don´t you think? 



My jewellery is normally quite simple. I don´t mind colour but I tend to do things small. Most jewellery I wear is simple and petite. 
This piece I wanted to keep for myself. The reason is the meaning of the focal bead. When something inspires you enough to make you accomplish things and is a reminder of the power of a dream, it makes me want to keep it somewhere where I can see it, and in this case I wanedt to wear it. 
Even though this design is quite simple it was a challenge for me. Nothing worked! I had to cut the chain and solder it later because I couldn´t get it through the bead holes and I had to glue the ending pieces because they wouldn`t stay put!


I also made a couple of earrings ad some necklaces with some of the other beads I got and also some from my own stash. I will leave with some of the pictures. 
Unfortunately we have had really bad weather here in Spain, in fact it has been snowing quite a lot so the pictures don´t have very good lighting, but I can assure you that all glass is so pretty and reflect the light beautifully. 

Pearl and garnet earrings.

I hope you like what you see and please feel free to let me know your thoughts. Just remember to be kind even if you need to tell me off for whatever reason, and bearing in mind that English is not my first language I might sound rude when I don´t mean to.

Beautiful work Noemi,I love seeing what you did with the headpins and ear wires I made.

I hate it when a project does not go as expected but you perservered and created some lovely pieces. Enjoy wearing them!

Barb Fernald dijo...

Your pieces are lovely. The simplicity of the designs really show off the beads you received. I can relate to the dilemma of holes in beads not being big enough. The red leather necklace is my favorite!

All your pieces are lovely - I especially like the first one with the silk cord - what a cool bead!

Beautiful work! The first necklace is my favorite. It's so beautiful, and I love that it used things from both soups - harmony. Also, I love the wire flourish you made with the pearl earrings. You've inspired me with the simplicity of your designs. Sometimes I over think. I like the last necklaces using the saucer beads. I struggle with that shape, and you've helped me think of them in a different way. Great post!

Hi Noemi, Silke's lampworked bead is awesome and keeping your design simple let it be the star. It is my favorite. The pearl and garnet earrings will go well with it. The orange disc earrings are cute and they look like they will pair with the disc and leather necklace. I really like the aqua disc and lapis necklace. You did a great job working with your swap beads.

Dorothy Supri dijo...

All of your pieces are beautiful - my favorite being the lampwork beads on the leather strands, just gorgeous!

Je St dijo...

I completely agree. I love to make more elaborate pieces, but prefer to wear very simple pieces. I love the necklaces you created!

Rachel Mallis dijo...

I really love the simplicity of your pieces! All of your necklaces are so stunning!

Joyce Becker dijo...

That first bead is breathtaking - I love how you focused on simplicity. All of your pieces are really artsy, classy and highlighting the focals - (in my opinion) Love them all.

CraftyHope dijo...

Oh, your pieces are indeed simple. . .simply beautiful! You gave the elements a chance to shine. Very well done!

Kelly dijo...

How lucky you were to receive two beautiful groups of beads as your soups! The colors & the individual beads/findings are gorgeous, and your designs are simply perfect. Highlighting the glass discs in several pieces, pearls in the earrings, and that absolutely stunning bead in your first necklace - it couldn't have been done better!

Lori Anderson dijo...

That bead in the first necklace has to be my favorite. The silk was a perfect choice -- very romantic. Excellent!

Thank you so much for participating again and for sending out soup to a stranded person!

Just Beads dijo...

I really love what you did with both soups. All the pieces are so beautiful in their simplicity. The first bead looks great with the silk... such harmony <3
Nevertheless are the earrings with garnets and pearls my favourite.
