Bead Soup reveal!


It's Bead Soup Party time! As some of you may recall I received this lovely bead assortment from the equally lovely Barbara Lewis. And this is my finished piece! Yay! And I finished it a few days ago, too, which is a small miracle for me.


The first order of business was to make the sweet little Green Girl Studios pendant part of something bigger. I like a big, bold focal so I combined several elements in order to achieve that. I started with one of my porcelain shard pieces and created a nice long dangle with a Czech glass bead and an unglazed porcelain bead cap(of sorts) that I made. The little birdy hangs nicely and is further highlighted by the large mother-of-pearl ring. I love that ring! I think it draws the eye right in and gives the whole necklace a pop.


I made a two strand necklace to hang the now large pendant from. One strand is made from these cool wonky frosted glass seed beads that I got in NYC last month. I need to go back to the city just to get more of them. The other strand is made up of the beautiful enameled beads that Barbara made along with some natural stones and some of my own porcelain faceted beads and also my ABC (Already Been Chewed - thanks for the name Helen!) beads that I showed being made here.


I tied and knotted a ribbon throughout the beads, which is one of my favorite things to do these days. I love how cozy it makes all the beads feel and it adds a nice texture to the overall piece.


Barbara sent me this gorgeous sterling clasp which is from, I believe, Star's Clasps.


One more view...


I made the necklace a short, choker length so that the long pendant would not be lost on the wearer. My striped shirt isn't the best thing to be wearing to model this necklace, but oh well. :)

This was another fun Bead Soup project and I send out a big thank you to Barbara Lewis for sending me such gorgeous beads to work with, and to Lori Anderson for organizing this party in the first place! Thanks ladies!
Be sure to check out what Barbara did with the beads I sent her!! I can't wait to see myself!!

And also be sure to check out all the other blogs that are participating in the party! It's a long list but bound to be worth the time (take a few days if you need to. ;).

Anonymous said...

I love what you did with your bead soup! Great job! Those beads are to die for.

Pretty Things said...

STUNNING! I really do love this! I'd wear it in a heartbeat. Barbara's beads and yours make a great mix!

maryharding said...

That is one beautiful necklace!! Love the multi strands and the focal. The ribbon is such a great touch!!

SueBeads said...

Really great Nancy! I love the color combo - I wouldn't have thought that would work but it's fantastic!

Jane said...

Love, love, love the color palette you used and the enameled beads, and pretty much everything about this necklace!!

roseworksjewelry said...

that's great! I love how you used the ribbon - I've seen the technique around recently. Mind if I try playing with it? Let me know :) I'll link to your blog!

GraceC said...

Allow me to get in line to admire this piece, which not even a PLAID t-shirt could have hurt. It's a killer piece, and there must be so much satisfaction to having made the bulk of the beads as well as upping the ante on the focal. When I can do that, I'm never gonna shut up about myself. The viewing pleasure is all mine.

EmandaJ said...

Hi Nancy -- Gorgeous piece, bold and beautiful with individually delicate element. A real balancing act perfectly accomplished!

I decided to start at the bottom of the list (I'm in the middle at #95). I hope you get a really good response from the swap/hop -- So much fun!

Artemisia's Studio

Laurel said...

Big and bold - just my style, too! I love how you combined your components with Barbara's always-awesome beads!

Lisa said...

Amazing...I love big and bold jewelry. The colors are some of my favorites. This one is a winner.

Claire Maunsell said...

Those elements are nothing sort of fantastic - the colours are so vibrant and rich - and you have put them together in such a way that they cherish each other in a most wonderful way. ummmm

Dana said...

#209 here...what unusual looking beads, you did a great job with them...

I am normally not a big, bold, chunky jewelry girl, but this necklace is something even I would wear over and over. Outstanding!

Regina said...

Teal and purple, stunning combination for a stunning necklace. Love the intertwining ribbon too! Just beautiful! Looks great on your neck!

Libby Leuchtman said...

Sweet Necklace. I love the ribbon idea. You got a great soup mix and made a baller piece.

Marie Cramp said...

Everyday Gypsy said...

What a unique piece. I really love what you did with the focal piece. Very eyecatching.

one-eared pig said...

the blue and the purple are yummy!

WondrousStrange said...

Beautiful work...gorgeous statement piece!

TesoriTrovati said...

This is stunning, and by far one of my favorite designs so far! The color combination is so bold and a bit unexpected. I would never think of purple with turquoise but it works. So many layers and intriguing elements. You really are a master of incredible design, Miss Nancy. Thank you for sharing your process and your inspiration.
Enjoy the day!

Menka Gupta said...

Marvellous!! Amazing work! I love the way you have kept the necklace choker style to emphasize on the pendant. Love the beautiful colors too!!

Beadbug said...

I love the bold statement this necklace makes.

For My Sweet Daughter said...

Wow, just wow! That's all I've got. This is awesome!

Stacey said...

Ooo...that wears so nicely! Love the knotted ribbon - great colors!

Linda Landig said...

So much to love about this! The colors--(turquoise and purple are one of my favorite combos), the pairing of your beads and Barbara's beads and the ribbon woven throughout. Bold and perfect!

Wendy said...

Very beautiful, cool design! Love the color combination! :)

Andrew Thornton said...

Simply magical! You always have such a unique and beautiful way of putting things together. Everything came together so nicely. Good job!

Malin de Koning said...

Bold! I love it! Wonderful and clever combinations everywhere. I don't think it will ever cease to be interesting to look at.

And that bead cap in white especially caught my attention. Super nice!

Anonymous said...

Yummy textures and colors. The ribbon wrap...very nice touch. This piece has visual interest, it does "pop" and made me smile when I first saw it!

Marcie A. said...

The bead cap hanging above the green girl studios pendant is great. I think it looks like a tooth...a tooth cap? I think my favorite part is the shell. The shell material is gorgeous, but I have such a hard time working it in to my pieces. I really struggle to balance it with other materials because of its sheen. This looks great, and the balance is perfect. Well done, Nancy!

jeanette said...

This is absolutely gorgeous!

Anonymous said...

The colors just POP! Aqua blue and purple(my fav) together with clay, enamel and stones. PERFECT!!!!! I really love this necklace.

Deci said...

Great pallet!

Gerry said...

These were some awesome beads and you did a wonderful job on this necklace!!!!

Genea said...

You are both so stinkin' talented! I love your necklace! Love the blue and purple together and I love the way you put the ribbon through and around the bead. Love those details and charm ;)

CraftyHope said...

Hummmmuna hummmuna, those colors make me feel a little faint!! I wouldn't have expected anything less! Lovely.

LeeLu Creations said...

So chunky and fun! I love the bird pendant and dragonfly clasp.

Courtney said...

So wonderful! A definite statement piece.

Clayworks by Lisa Boucher said...

Very cool finished piece. Such a striking and unusual mix to work with and love how you added the wonky strand and other delights to make your wearable work of art!

Francy said...


Debbie / Prairie Emporium said...

Awesome Nancy!!! How could a necklace made with a mix of Barbars beads and yours be anything other than awesome.

Cathryn said...

First--I love the colors that were part of your ingredients and those you used from your stash. Second, I love the ribbon intertwining and becoming one with the beads! Interesting texture! Last, this whole piece is feminine, bold, and beautiful--like women world-wide are! Congratulations!

Judy said...

I really like this combination of colors the purple adds a nice surprise. How you incorporated the birdie was perfect, it shows off so nicely.

I am so in love with this I love chunky.I love aqua and teal and I love the pendant focal. All in all I just love it!, the ribbon is a nice surprise.

ViviBijoux said...

What a striking necklace, and the colors are sublime. It's grea the way it looks heavy and not too long around the neck. Should definitely be part of the BSP album. I love your feather beads, heading towards your shop now ^_^ Virginie

Jennifer Cameron said...

INcredible! I was so distracted by the chunky gorgeous beads on the one strand in the first photo, I didn't even notice it was double stranded. LOL! It's so beautiful and I love how you "beefed up" the pendant.

Shirley said...

What a stunning necklace. Love the thought process for the pendant. And I absolutely adore the ribbon peeking thru the beads. The colors just explode out of the photo. This is a winner for sure!

Loretta said...

Beautiful necklace. Love what you did with the focal. Soup is good!

Terri said...

It's a show stopper and that clasp is so cool you cooked up a mean batch of bead soup!!!

Karen Williams said...

A great mix of beads! I love the way you mixed the beads from your stash with those from Barbara.

CAG- Crafts said...

Very unique beautiful mix of beads, I love your necklace!

Charlene said...

It is just gorgeous and looks so nice on you!

jamberry_song said...

Wow, gorgeous! This is a water spirit's necklace, I can tell. :3 The design is so bold and beautiful; kudos to you for being brave enough to use your big, beautiful beads like this. It worked so well! There's something sacred about this one; you'd be at harmony with the elements when wearing it, I'd imagine. :) Lovely!

Janea aka Naya said...

I love the color combo, very lovely. Lucky you being paired with Barbara. I just met her in Tucson, very nice lady. I love your work and your ceramic pieces. They are always sold out before I have a chance to purchase them day I will get a few pieces to create with. Thanks again for sharing.

KayzKreationz said...

That turned out very pretty. And I love how you enhanced the focal. Nice piece.

Heidi said...

The colors are totally mouthwatering. I love every bead in this piece - and your unglazed porcelain bead cap thingy looks like a molar, lol. Such a fun necklace :)

Norma's Clay said...

Cyndi L said...

Great colors, and the design looks wonderful on you!

BluMoon said...

Lovely colours and design its great!

Shaiha said...

Okay I am totally in love with the idea of running ribbon thru the beads. I have never worked with ribbon but this might be in the push I need.

Releases by Rufydoof said...

Wow what an awesome piece - those beads are incredible. This certainly is a piece of wearable art. Well done!


Fire Phoenix said...

This is a really fun design, I like it a lot! It's a really bold, statement necklace, and the colours merry together really well.
