...for Bead Soup that is!!!
She sent me this fun collection:
I had such fun creating this piece from all the beautiful treasures that she sent. I have to admit the clasps and focal were not things I would normally gravitate towards - in fact that is Lori's goal - to get us to work outside the box - to stretch our creative selves!!! And I want to make it VERY clear I don't dislike these pieces in anyway shape or form - there is nothing AT ALL wrong with them, they are beautiful, very beautiful....just not my normal pickings.
It worked though, it definitely helped me to think outside the box, to try a more whimsical approach to match that adorable little froggie. Very fun! Love the colors, so rich and beautiful. I selected the silk and cord so I could get the fun movement I was looking for. Love the look and the effect. What do you think?
So now that you've viewed my piece please make sure you go and check out what Nadya made using this selection of beads and goodies that I sent her:
