It is that Special Time of the Year - again…  
Time to celebrate The 8th Bead Soup Blog Party - 2014!


 
Thanx to our sweet hostess Lori, (though still having so much health issues,
I’m so sorry) it’s possible to participate in this Event.
Thank you so much Lori for all your efforts to keep the party going!
Take care, I wish you all the best!

 
I was very surprised by the Soup Saskia Letta sent to me, so many colourful
and phantasy full  made glass beads.
Here is her weblog http://puenktliundanton.blogspot.nl/  
She sent  me lots of lovelies…   
 
 
Look!!
Packed in a small sweet toilet bag, some chocolate Easter bunnies added.
They are gone… as you will understand, loooong  time ago!
 
 
 Because I am a glass bead maker too, I decided not to add glass beads to
my ‘jewellery- to- be’. I  also did not send glass beads to Saskia for that reason.
Her beads really  ‘don’t need much’. They draw a lot of attention because of the
vivid colours and their shape. So I kept it simple, what wasn’t so easy for me… 
I only added some matching 'gemmies' and silver beads. 
A necklace was born! Here I also used the beautiful silver clasp.
 
 

 Some beads were left... A sweet little crown,  and a small statue??? bead ?
Some beads could imagine a dress, maybe??? Okay, let’s make the statue bead
become  a focal, a princess. Wearing a long dress… 
And princesses need silk of course, so I gave her a silk ribbon 'to wear'…  
She can dance for hours in this way!
 
 

There were only a few beads left. For matching earrings? 
Yes, as a finishing touch! I lovetheir teal colour! With some silver beads, 
bead caps and chain maille rings they look nice,
the sterling silver ear hooks completed my design!

  45. I love Marti Conrad's word: grand! And Jean Yates': stunning! Yes, I agree with all my soul and love for design and beads: Dini, you've created grand and stunning jewelry art -- as you always do. Both the art bead lampwork soup and your designs are amazing! Love the chartreuse and turquoise colorway, the simple elegant touches you added such as silver beads, gemmies and silk for your princess. Wow! Beautiful extraordinary necklace; wonderful, thoughtful, regal princess; and gorgeous earrings! I'm in love with them -- the love knot rings and your earwires inspire me to make earrings right now. Your blog -- your heart -- your jewelry -- and reveal are all heavenly, pure elegance! Bravo my friend! Happy Hopping! ♥ Rita

  49. Dini, you received a gorgeous colorful soup! You may think it was easy with so many beautiful pieces to work with but not everyone can pull it off. Your first necklace has a beautiful flow and balance, I would love to see how it looks on! You achieved your goal of "less is more" with your second necklace, I just adore the use of that crown making the beads look like a dancing princess with silk! And your earrings are perfect, I love the addition of the intertwined silver rings at the top and the ear wires you chose. I'm sure your partner is thrilled with what you made!

  51. A beautiful soup like this may be difficult to handle! I love the burst of color in the first necklace and the arrangement and choice of complementary beads because they make the gorgeous lampwork stand out and at the same time harmoniously soften their effect. The dancing princess and the earrings are just the opposite - like "one bead show" but you have found the right findings and details make them shine brighter!

  55. Wow, you received a lovely soup and your designs are just great! I love each and every piece but I've I would be forced to pick a favorite it would be the second necklace. Err no, it would be the first. Err...no I think it would be the earrings....see I can't pick a favorite, even if my life would depend on it.
