BSBP8 Finally!

First of all props and much love to Lori Anderson who, somehow, through illness and obstacles, shepherded this whole crazy thing.  Second, sorry I am a little late.  I have a few problems of my own.

Well, when I got my beads from Menka Gupta, I was thrilled!  She sent pearls, crystals, tiny silver stars, earring findings and an amazing hand focal.  I admit, it took me awhile to decide what to make, because I am basically a seed beader.

So I went through my stash (which is so very large, it lives in a room we call the warehouse).  I found some bright waxed linen, some scrap suede and some cute brads that had a place to hang something from.

An idea hit me to go tribal sort of, with a theme of sand and sea, or night and day.  So here it is laid out flat.



Here it is on the mannequin.  Sorry for the bad pics, I am having some issues with shaking and my eyes, so things come out a little sub-par.






I hope you all enjoy the blog hop, and that everyone had as much fun as I did!!

This is something that would be so fun to see in person - so many elements to examine. Great work with your soup!

Wow. That necklace really makes a statement. I am jealous that your stash has it's own room. And a large one at that. Very unique design.

Very artful statement piece! I don't know if this was an intended effect but the picture on the mannequin after the first two picture was astonishing! Such a complex design, so many textures & some recycling, I guess - very inspirational!
