7th Bead Soup Blog Party- 2nd reveal

I'm very pleased to get the opportunity one more time, to take part in Loris wonderful organized Bead Soup Blog Party. It's the second reveal now, and I already saw a lot of really great items in the first reveal.

For me it's now the 4th time to took part at this great event, the 3rd time in the official Bead Soup Blog Party. And I get more inspired and more inspired, the often I took part.... :0))

If you're not aware of the Bead Soup Blog Party - you can take a qick look,what it's all about at Loris Blog - here: click

This time I was paired with Elaine Robitaille (Too Aquarius), she's an outstanding polymer clay artist from Canada. More than one month ago, I got such a charming Soup from her (here you can take a look at it). So much lovely components, beautiful colours and amazing detail work from my partner. I immediately had a lot of ideas, what to do with it. But - I also wanted to integrate some of my own work to prove how polymer will work with glass.

So - here's, what I came up with......three pieces in all, and I can tell you: I'm so happy with all three of them!
But be warned - I took a lot of photos .... :0)

First I made a necklace with the lovely flower focal bead from Elaine. I found a big chinese coin in my stash, thrilled two holes in it, and used it to give the focus on the lovely focal.

I attached a sweet small brass watch and a brass heart to the coin. Thanks to my friend Sabine who assited me with this pieces - you can't imagine, how hard it is here in Austria to get nice brass components.

I also used the brass toogle, the filigree components (both connected to one - so it fit's well as a spacer), some beautiful clay flower beads and these cute little birdie (knew it at the moment, I saw it - it will be part of one of my pieces ;0)) - all of them from my partner Elaine. Then I added some green czech glass beads, some of my own solid coloured lampwork beads, some matching Swarovski beads, a brass chain and a vibrant pink silk cord to finish the composition.
 

 "It's time for spring" 




And I also made some matching earrings with those wonderful matching flower charm beads from Elaine.


And here the whole set once again:


Then I decided to make a second piece with one of my lampwork beads as a focal, using some of the charming clay flowers from Elaine to complement it. You have to know, I'm infected with a strong butterfly-virus at the moment  ;0) - of course nothing else could be the motif of my focal.

"There's a butterfly in my garden"  


 


And because it took me more than one attempt, to be happy with the colours of my focal I have a little give-away for you here - which will be drawn from all those (hopefully lovely ;0))) comments on this blog thread. The first drawn person could choose (more or less organic), the second person will get the other one. You can leave your comment until Saturday, 13th of April 2013. .... uups it's already Saturday, 13th so I've made a mistake, sorry - you can comment until Saturday, 20th ;0)

Wow, Michi, da hast du dich selbst wieder einmal übertroffen!!!!!!
Was kann man zu diesen tollen Ketten und den Ohrringen überhaupt sagen. Das ist gar nicht in Worte zu fassen. Deine Farben, wieder einmal, grün und pink. Klasse!!!!
Ich bin in alle drei Kompositionen verliebt. Da kann ich sehr gut verstehen, dass du mit ihnen zufrieden bist.
Messingteile zu finden, ist auch hier in Deutschland nicht leicht und ich war auch schon fleißig auf der Suche. ;0)
Das Fädeln steht mir noch bevor, die Ideen werden immer mehr...das kennst du ja... ;0)
Und deine Give aways sind absolut traumhaft. Mei, das wär' schon toll, wenn das Los auf mich fallen würde. Schmacht!!!
Aber du wirst mit Sicherheit noch vieeeele liebe Kommentare ernten...
Ganz liebe Grüße,
Sabine
