I'm a little late posting as I traveled from DC to Denver today. Have my pics now and am ready to reveal my creations. I received my bead soup from Denielle Hagerman of Some Beads and Other Things blog. The soup that Denielle sent is delicate and spring-like with flower and polka dot beads, crystals and pearlescent beads with a silver toggle clasp. A garden theme.
And here's the necklace I created with the focal. I tried a technique I hadn't used in a while - micro-macrame. I used an ombre thread for the macrame and some green glass beads to make the necklace. A tassel completes the look.
Then I created a bracelet. I love this look.
Thanks to Lori Anderson for hosting the blog party. You can see links for all of the creations here.
