beadsoup party

I finished my bead soup party necklace tonight, after several starts and rip started out as a spiral chain I was 3/4 of the way done with the chain, when I decided I didn't like it...... I already had the focal bezeled and fringed with LOTS of fringe, I took it off the chain, tore the chain apart and did a diamond stitch chain instead, then decided I didn't like all the fringe so I redid the fringe using a lot less fringe this time, added the clasp and its done! and I like it!! will post some pictures after the big bead soup party reveal...I started another necklace with a similar diamond stitched chain tonight, the same color as the first one, but with turquoise accent beads, because I am going to suspend a reproduction antique brass opium bottle from the chain, and it has a turquoise cab on the cap, its looking pretty good so far


  1. Isn't it great that you can redo, remake, refurbish your own jewelry designs? I must have started my own bead soup piece several times before I came out with a design I liked. I looked at it yesterday and I still like it. I think I'm gonna go ahead and wear it next week!

  2. Yay! I finished both of the necklaces I got from my bead soup ingredients :) This is such a fun event, especially getting to meet all these talented artists! Thanks for the visit too ;)
