Bead Soup Swap & Create

Lori Anderson hostess the best Bead Soup Swap & Create online gather. So, when I seen she was hosting another one…I couldn’t help but jump on board. Thanks, Lori

Lori paired me up with mega talented Bobbie Rafferty of beadsong jewelry . To say, I felt a little out of my league after drooling on Bobbie’s blog and Instagram is an understatement. Then, I received the soup that Bobbie sent…..again way way out of my league….and to top it off Bobbie was so generous that she sent two focus beads. Oh how to choose…but I took some deep breaths and got to work.

Here is what, I came up with:

Necklace/Earring set #1

Healed Caterpillar

Since, the focal pendant was so big and absolutely gorgeous, I wanted to make it the true center piece and a simple pair of earrings 😉

Necklace/Earring Set #2

Landscape Songs

Bobbie beaded that bead…eeekkk ….it’s so gorgeous! She is so talented. I was so excited to create a necklace with it. As, you can see I like a long necklace.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects. I can’t wait to see what Bobbie and the rest of the group did. Be sure to check out everyones project out! List is below.

  1. Hi Kim, The African green jasper necklace is beautiful. I think you did Bobbie’s beaded bead true justice. Great job.

  2. So great! I love the little photo collages you put together for your pieces! That was so clever!
    The Green Jasper is everything. Love it.

  3. I feel your pain…. in terms of being able to work along side such great and real “artists”. However we all have something to offer, share and create – after all it’s a learning experience. Your work is perfect – the Jasper is gorgeous by itself, but you framed to just right (in my humble opinion). Great job!

  4. Your work is absolutely lovely. I really like everything you made–you definitely did justice to the lovely beads you were sent. Well done!!

  5. Those are huge components, but they are so pretty in the overall design. Amazing work! Sparkle on!

  6. I think you did a beautiful job with the elements Bobbie sent you.
