M M Good, my soup is done!



here is my finished bead soup, the focal was a large round flat bead, I treated it like a cabochon I had some olive rondels and some pale green ovals for accents, these were my bead soup ingredients, I added two beaded beads, some fresh water pearls, and some crystals and a few glass leaves to spice things up a bit!

  6. I'm envious of the seed beading--it's something I have yet to get into. You've done a beautiful job highlighting the cabochon and adding the dangles just completes the unique look! I agree with the rest of the commenters--FABULOUS!
