BSBP 3rd Reveal - Aug 25th 2012 - Part 1

The final reveal of Bead Soup Blog Party on the air. Time for me to show-off my design. It's quite sad story actually for me, cause I lost my bead soup when it on the way to my home address. My partner Solange Collin sent me very awesome, beautiful, yummy beads soup. 
Here the photo :
But when the package arrived to my address, I only found these two vintage west africa glass beads :
*fighting* I am trying my best to turn these two beads into focal bead and toogle (cause the main requirement for this party is using the focal and toogle clasp). I hope Solange will love the way I turned her unique beads into pendant and necklace.

The Focal Pendant
I made this pendant from :
1 vintage West Africa Glass Bead from my partner Solange
MKG White Clear Seedbeads
3 pcs Small Bead Caps
2 pcs Faceted Peridot Gemstones Tear Drop
6 pcs Swarovski #3700 Flower Margarita Beads Jonquil
1 pcs Swarovski #5040 Rondelle Bead Fern Green/Topaz Blend
Fireline Braided Beading Thread .0006

The Necklace With Special Toogle
I made this necklace used :
1 vintage West Africa Glass Bead from my partner Solange
Soft Touch Best Beading Wire .019
Manik Jawa Peridoty Seedbeads
Light Green Bugle Manik Jawa beads
MKG White Clear Seedbeads
2 pcs Handmade Sunflower Clay Beads by Wulan Pelita Craft

When the pendant and the necklace put into together, here the result :
"End Of Summer" Necklace
Final looks for "End Of Summer" Necklace
I'm thrilled to introduce you with my partner for this reveal...Solange Collin...far away from blue continent 'Europe', she lives in Nancy - France. Solange is jewelry designer with her passion to what they call primitive art. Primitive art? Aaahhhh...when you have visit to her shop you will find out what is that. I love her jewelry concept, simple and elegant style. I hope what I have sent for her last month can explore her passion on African art, cause I sent her replica of African glass bead plus some etnic java glass beads too.
Curious how she will turn those beads above? Just simply click here

I had received news from Solange that she had sent the 2nd bead soup through Tanya for me. Well, I guess I'll have double reveal day then *smile* Stay tune for my second reveal please...
Thank you Tanya of Fusion Muse and Solange Collin *big hug*

  1. Lili, I really love what you made with the 2 beads. I am so sorry about what happened!!!. I can't wait to see your next reveal.Like i said, I love this simple and elegant Necklace, i would not do much better.Big hug

    1. In purposely I made the necklace in simple, cause I want the pendant becomes the 'focal' of attention =)
      It's ok had pushed my imagination to create something pretty.

  2. I'm sorry about your beads being stole, what a shame! But what you created is absolutely lovely, I especially love the sunflower necklace :) So pretty!

    1. Thanks Agi =)
      And Happy Birthday to you.

  3. Very sorry to hear your parcel went missing and you ended up with only two beads. My partner had the same happening to her. You created stunning necklaces though as you had to be very imaginative! Fabulous!!

  4. So sorry to hear about your beads getting lost/taken. But I think you made a lovely necklace with the 2 beads you did get, using them in the spirit of the BSBP and making a focal and clasp with them. Hopefully we'll see your '2nd' reveal soon. :)

    1. I can't wait until monday to get my 2nd soup =)

  5. Wow, talk about turning lemons into lemonade! It had to be so painful when most of your package didn't make it. But I love the two beads that did finish their journey to you, and how you jumped in to find ways to meet the challenge guidelines anyways.

    Very beautiful!

  6. So sorry you lost your bead soup! You did an awesome job with what you had left from it! The colors are happy colors and you should be happy because your design is beautiful!

  7. Lovely pieces. You created wearable pieces for the modern woman

  8. very pretty design. you had a challenge and pulled it off terrifically.

  9. What a way to roll with the punches! The necklace that you created out of the two beads is gorgeous.

  10. Congrats on creating such an amazing piece from 2 beads! Lovely!

  11. Love the colors love the inventive use of the beads...a truly delightful piece! So sorry about what happened to the bulk of your soup...but you rouse to the challenge! And excelled!

  12. AWESOME use of what was left.Looking forward to seeing what you come up with when you get the next parcel.Love and Hugs Tanya

  13. I'm so sorry you didn't receive that beautiful soup :(
    you find a great way to use what you received, very creative!
    ciao dall'Italia

  14. Wow!! i simply love your piece!! it's so fresh, coloured, cherful!!! Congratulations!!

  15. You did an outstanding job. With just 2 beads you created a beautiful necklace. I will be back to see what else you make.

  16. fantastic summer necklace and very clever clasp!!!! congratulations!

  17. Love the end of summer necklace! The pendant is perfect for this!

  18. How frustrating for you and your partner to have it all get lost like that! Stupid postal systems...!
    You did a fantastic job though, End of Summer Necklace is lovely :)

  19. So sorry that your soup went missing, you ended up with an extra challenge. You've created a lovely necklace and still managed to keep in the spirit of the BSBP. Can't wait to see what you do with your new soup!

  20. Wow! You really rose to the spirit of this party and pulled off a beautiful necklace. I love it. It is probably one of the prettiest I've seen. Love those two beads (or should I say focal and clasp). You really did a fantastic job. Way to go!

  21. Great job turning lemon to lemonades, you created beautiful pieces!!

  22. So sad that your beads were lost but I have to say that you did a fantastic job improvising. Love your pieces.

  23. I think you really made the best of a downright rotten situation. The necklace and pendant you made with just those two beads is inspiring. And, I'm so happy to hear that there's more soup on the way for you. Way to stay positive! :)

  24. Well done! I love how you made a beautiful necklace with what was left of your beadsoup. Will definitely visit your blog again for your second reveal. *fighting*

  25. How sad your soup disappeared! But I love what you did! And very cool she sent a second soup through Tanya!

  26. So sorry to hear someone stole your soup (may they have a bad tummy ache for at least 2 hours!).

    And am AMAZED and FLOORED with what you did with just two beads. You are an amazing designer, and an even better sport!

  27. I LOVE the toggle you created from Solange's bead.

  28. that is a wonderful way to create the toggle with the sunflowers! perfect in anyway, you did a great job!!

  29. You over came and conquered, absolutely beautiful creations.

  30. So sorry you didn't get all of the original bead soup, but what a creative response to adversity! Fabulous job!

  31. Sorry to hear what happened to your soup, but I love what you did with the 2 vintage glass beads - so pretty!!

  32. So sorry to hear about your soup, but you've been very creative with the fragments they left you! I look forward to seeing what you do with your next serving when it arrives.

  33. I love that you took what managed to make it to you and turned it into a focal and clasp. So creative!! Glad to hear you have another soup coming. Love your piece! The sunflowers are really lovely

  34. So little to work with and still brilliant!
