Well it's finally here... time for my Bead Soup Blog Party reveal!!! This was my first time joining in and it's been a blast! If they'll have me, I would love to join the next one. My partner is Lorelei and today is our reveal day. Check out Lorelei's blog to see the Bead Soup I sent her and what she made with it! :) I haven't seen what she's made yet and I can't wait !!!
Ok... are you ready? Here we go!!!
Here's the Bead Soup Lorelei sent me...
And here's what I made with all that Bead Soup goodness...
I loved everything Lorelei sent me... I knew I wanted to use the large pewter
donut shaped pendant but how to use it in a bracelet? I have never used a pendant like that before. And I love the sweet little bird toggle clasp, but it was just a little to small for the design I had in mind and I was afraid it would get lost among all the chunky beads. (Oh how I love chunky beads!)
Sooooo... I played around, came up with an idea and decided to use the pendant as my clasp! Just had to take the original toggle apart and see if the bird would fit thru the center... and... Voilà... it was a perfect fit!! :)
And now for a fun surprise... We decided to have a our first blog giveaway!
This sweet bracelet will be gifted to a randomly selected person.
