Soup's Ready!! ...finally

Thank you (again) so much to everyone for the kind words and the patience while I "got it together" and "got on with it"  lol.

Here is what my bead soup turned into.  It isn't the stunning masterpiece that I had envisioned but, I think it's pretty darn good.  I've never worked with chain before.  I've only ever beaded.  This chain was actually another necklace until shortly before it turned into this one.  I didn't like the way the other one worked when I got it (mail order) so, I had planned on changing it anyway...just not this way.  lol

So, now for my soup pics.  There were other stones but, I'm just not sure what it wants to be yet. I've realized that a medication I was put on by my doctor has been part of my issue...going to have THAT fixed really soon.  Nothing like having something given to you and making the issue worse rather than better.

Anyway, ... on with the show ...

Here's both the earrings and the necklace.  The coils on the necklace are pink not copper, hard to believe in these pics I know but, it's true.


the necklace all by itself


close up #1 - the top of the focal and the toggle - I really like the milky blue colour of the round agate beads


close up of the focal - such a pretty stone - I like the way these colours came together.


the earrings - I used the pink wire  because of the pink focal, truly it matches better than the pics show


and a close up



I hope you like it!  I'm off to start to look at what all of you posted now.  I didn't think it was fair of me to see what you had before I posted mine so I haven't even looked yet.  All except at my partner Bella's.  ...and what a beautiful job she did!   Here's the link to her soup  --->  Bella @ Wirelicious
aaaannnnd here's the link to the list of Bead Soup's, just in case I'm not the last one in the world to look at them!  (you'll have to scroll down a little, there are 362 of us!!)  ---> Bead Soup Fall 2011

That's all for tonight everyone.  There is more to come.  I'm going to work on some Chain Maille next! I'm so excited...Christmas presents!!  Have a spectacular week and happy creating!
