8th Bead Soup Blog Party: REVEAL TIME!

Finally it is reveal time! Due to several issues the reveal was postponed for one week. Which gave me some extra time to make things. So thumbs up for the delay! :)

FIRST I got to say a HUGE thank you to Lori Anderson and her helpers for organizing this. It must have been a task to handle all this. The SECOND thank you goes to my talented partner Eszter for the wonderful bead soup she sent and for her patience, as my first package got lost and she had to wait for the second one toaarive. Guess she's happy about the postponement, too.

So what did I get from Eszter? She sent an incredible bead soup with some beads that immediately caught my eye. For example the orange Buddha head or the pink stone beads. Aren't they great? And look at the beautiful colors of the soutache ribbon! Ah, so many Options!

 
And what did I make with my bead soup?
 
The first thought was doing a piece with soutache and I chose to take the Buddha head as the focal, because the ribbons match it perfectly. Not sure what this piece will become, but I can imagine this as a centerpiece for a colorful painting, a wall decoration or a pendant. I love how it turned out and I bow to all soutache artists who mastered this art form!
 

The second piece is a little flower pick I made with the flat pink stone bead. I found the perfect seedbeads and cutbeads in my stash and here it is. Lovely!

A list of participants can be found on the official Bead Soup Blog Party Page! I can't share the list here as there are over 500 (!) participants. Otherwise this would have been a loooooooooooong post. :)

  4. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me even if I have been following your blog for some time. Both are exquisite pieces. I love what you've made with the buddha and I would use it as a pendant on its own. Exceptional work.

    1. Soutache is done with special ribbon by stitching it together, with or without beads. Like I've done it around the Buddha head.

  17. You are very clever, how you used the Buddha head was genius and it can be used as a pendant for a necklace or a brooch. I love the colors you used for the cheerful little flower pick.
