Bead Soup September 2011 Reveal...

Welcome to my Bead Soup Reveal…
I know there is a lot to see with over 300 entries so I'll keep to mainly photos:
Marsha Neal Studio Bracelets.
Handmade Ceramic Beads & Fancy Jasper.
The small faceted Fancy Jasper Beads from Miri were perfect!
I have been stocking up on jasper stones since April.
Loved using one of my fairy ribbons with these silver & large hole beads...
Even made a slip on bracelet with the extra beads from the Bead Soup...
Here is a group shot of bracelets and necklace from Miri's Soup.
Beads on the work table, finding their place
Snapped with my iPhone during creation of the adjustable bracelet.
These will be my new fall layered look...
And can I tell you that after being part of this Bead Soup 2011…
That I am inspired…
No - obsessed (don't we all go there?)
Inspired to use some of these new beads
And some of these lentil beads that have been around since last fall…
To make some actual finished work that will be available for sale very soon…
Strange Fruit performing at Longwood Gardens in PA, Sept 16 to 18, 2011.
It is all such a strange dance that we keep going around in isn't it?
I plan on stocking up on more of that Fancy Jasper.
So I need to sell more beads to buy more beads…
Want updates on my beads?

Thank you Miri for sending me those faceted beauties!
And Lori for hosting Bead Soup for me to have a deadline to work towards…

Thanks for stopping by!

  42. Cool use of earth and water colors. Very natural. And thank you for keeping it to mostly photos and close-ups. I think I'm going to go blind trying to view some of the photography on other sites. LOL!

  43. Sell more beads to buy more beads...have you read 100 Years of Solitude? There's a similar line about needing to sell gold fishes to buy more gold to make more fish....

    Love the layered bracelet look. I've been playing with that using leather cord, but I really love the look of the ribbon. Great job!
