Pretty Purple Necklace

I was playing with purple and blue beads and here is what I ended up designing.

The necklace has purple pearls as the base accompanied by purple Swarovski and blue Lapiz Lazuli. The three danglers in the pendant reminds me of dancing puppet dolls and the use of Silver beads added the shine.

Bead Soup Necklace Set

Though I missed participating at the Bead Soup Party this time, but I got a delicious bead soup from the organizer Lori Anderson herself. Going by the tradition of the Bead Soup Blog Party, I knew I will be using the focal and the clasp for sure. Also, I really liked the orange color in the Chinook pendant and decided to use Carnelian chips with brown hint in them along with faceted grey Agate and gold beads. Length of the pendant was little challenging and after few tries, I got it right.

This is what I designed.

Here are the earrings I came up with using a Russian gold circle finding.

What do you say about the set?

Bead Soup from Lori Anderson

When I missed signing up for the September 2011 Bead Soup Blog Party organized by extremely talented and creative jewelry artist Lori Anderson, I was very disappointment with myself to have forgotten to put a reminder. I wrote to Lori to include me to future parties and guess what she replied with...a package in the mail.

I couldn't believe my luck when I opened the package. Inside was a bead soup beautifully packed in a Lori Anderson Designs jewelry box with a personalized note from Lori...what else I could wish for after missing the sign up!

The bead soup included a handmade Chinook pendant, gold filled clasp and beads, purple pearls, Czech glass beads and oval wooden beads.

Thanks a ton Lori for the wonderful gift. Now my challenge is to come up with a beautiful design with the lovely beads I got.
