The soup is on! Come feast your eyes!!

Finally the day of the big reveal has arrived! The day everyone has been anticipating and salivating at the thought of the feast we are about to partake in! Join us! Follow us! Leave us a note!! That's what this day is all about! Sharing our soup, making new friends, revisiting old ones and getting bowl fulls of inspiration!!

The wait is over...
This is what I started with! A pretty mix of silver, black and amber.

Now, it has become this!! A long elegant necklace, with enough length to go right over your head, but with the added flexibility of a clasp, for those of us who find it easier.
 I added some black coated wire that I had left over from a previous project and these cool rustic links from Susan Lenart Kazmer's Industrial Chic line! They had been waiting for just the right treasures to call to them, and here they are!

My Bead Soup Partner, Maria Rosa Sharrow, made this wonderful butterfly wing pendant. She picked beads that were a perfect match and the complete package truly inspired me! I look forward to the next Bead Soup!!

Here are some photos for you to enjoy!

Here is the complete list for you to follow, please take your time and go through each post. Leave a little note and give someone new a follow. It means so much to each and every one of us!!

Thanks Lori for the fun gathering, hope to get to do it again soon!

Lovely, and the darker wire is spot on for this piece -- brighter silver, I think, wouldn't quite do it. You did a great job!
