The 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party! Party Time!!!

Annnd....its reveal time!!

First off...a HUGE thanks to Lori Anderson of Pretty Things for hosting this hop in spite of all the health issues she has been having in the past few months. Thanks, hugs, and lots of love, Lori!

This is the third time I am participating in this blog hop, and it keeps getting better every time!
For those of you new here...Lori pairs up partners, and we exchange bead soups. The soup must contain at least one focal and one clasp, and we need to use them both in our creations in some way or another.


My partner this time around is the super talented Miss Kari Asbury..
Here's a recap of what she sent me:




Kari sent me two clasps and whoolllllleeeeeeeeeeeeee lot of focals! I knew right away that I was going to use the peacock focal. And of course the wonderful key clasp.

I went to the bead cruise right after I got these beads, and took them along...to see the Bahamas, you know ;)

I worked on the pieces a bit over there...and used some of the door prizes and goodies I got on the cruise for my creations. Here's me in a mini pajama party in my cabin with Diana (Suburban Girl Beads), Erin (she's behind the camera) and Terri :-)



This is what I made at the pajama party...I used one of the ribbons Kari sent me. Paired it with a house bead by Heather Powers.
I know...this is too simple...hang on..it gets better ;-)


And then we had a costume contest, where I was runner up...I won a big bag of beads! And then we had door prizes...where I won some beads from Ema Kilroy :-) (EmaKDesigns) And I learned some hammering techniques...And I used them all to come up with this:

I used one of the clasps that Kari sent. And the little spacer beads are part of Ema's door prize.
(Hang on...it gets better...)



I hammered a bail for it...and used Ema's beads again in the rings that hold it all together.
The chocolate pearls (they are a dark brown..the color is not showing up right here :( ) are from my win from the costume party.



And here it is in all its glory :-)


Yeah, I know ya love it ;-) Am bummed about the chocolate pearls not showing up properly :(

Moving on...
The clasp had me stumped for a while. I had suggestions of making a bracelet out of it, but it looked too big on my wrist. And in my world, everyone is my size, and likes what I like. So..that idea didn't work.

I had taken a knotting class with Erin Siegel on the cruise, and not sure how, but I ended up deciding to make a knotted necklace with it. I used wood and metal beads (some of the metal ones are leftovers from her class) to maintain the rustic feel of the pendant (yes, we shall now call it a pendant, not a clasp)

So here it is:


I could not quite remember what Erin had said about how much length of cord I need to use (some formula based on what the end length is to be) and fell short of cord, so will have to rework this a bit. I will not say what's wrong with this, if you can find it...shhhh...don't tell ;-)

Here's a few more pictures of the necklace, I was just having fun with photos :)



Not sure why this is showing upside down, I tried fixing it, but it won't budge. Oh well





So that's what I have so far! Thanks so much Kari! I know I am going to have so much more fun with the rest of the things you sent me!

And now you (who are not Kari), go on over to her blog to see what she's been upto:
Kari Asbury of Hippie Chick Designs (blog / etsy)
In case you would like some of these tiles for yourself, here's the link to Kari's component store: Asbury Avenue Designs.

And here's who else is partying with me!

  3. I love everything! The peacock is gorgeous...the bail you made for it so unique. In my world a clasp can always be a focal too...so the key toggle design is wonderful! Thank you so much for being a fantastic soup partner and for taking your goodies cruising...nice to know they saw the Bahamas even if I couldn't! lol

  10. Look at you putting all your new found knowledge and beads to work, what a great example you are! I agree, your teeny wrist would be dwarfed by the pretty clasp/focal the knotting and lengthening was a great idea.

    1. Right? And it would not do any good to that gorgeous pendant to look so out of place there.
      I am glad I took the soup along..I would not have put all my new knowledge to use so effectively otherwise.

      Been thinking of you all day, Emma...because of the earrings I made today :)

    1. Thanks Becky.
      Well...I guess I should have reworded "simple" to "not used the best parts of the soup" :) I do love that little house necklace a lot :)

  32. I can't tell if my comment took or not so I'm commenting again:) Congratulations on your costume win! Both your designs really showcase the components you chose from your soup. My favorite is the necklace you made with the beautiful key clasp. Simple yet perfectly focused.

  33. Ahhh, you've been on the bead cruise - must be an amazing event! I've thought first you will play with both pieces (the peacock and the clasp) in one design - both of them are a treasure. Good decision, to make two seperate necklaces with the peacock and the clasp as an eyecatch. Lovely cooking, Kashmira!

    1. Thank you!
      Yes, the bead cruise was awesome fun!

      Hmmm...both pieces in one design might be too much for me to handle, lol, i usually work with smaller components :)

  39. That peacock necklace is amazing - the choice of beads and colors for the beaded links couldn't be more complementary to the fantastic focal! And you've found just the right design (and a different technique) to hang the key clasp from. And I think that the pendant on the ribbon necklace is just right, because it is the ribbon that stands out by itself.

    1. Thank you! I do love the links in the peacock necklace a lot :) I don't usually use pearls much...since the holes are always so small..but I got lucky with these ones.

  40. Beautiful pieces! I especially love the peacock piece! I'm a beginning wireworker so to see your bail is inspiring and gorgeous! Well done!

    1. Thanks Linda! I struggle a lot with wire wrapping, but I think working with thicker gauge and hammering it to will works well for me :)

  41. Wow, you chose the perfect beads to accompany those focals, and the perfect styles to show them off :) LOVE that bail you made for the peacock! So are you keeping either of these for yourself ;) ?

    1. Thank you, Sandra! I think I am going to make more of those bails...it does look pretty neat!
      Well...not keeping them for myself, but they will stay in the family. Am giving them to my nephew's fiancee :)

    1. Thanks Susan! The focal itself is so amazing, it needs to be seen to believe it! So I had to make sure it got a fitting design :)

  44. The bead cruise is on my bucket list :) Sounds like you had a blast, and I love how you incorporated the new techniques you learned into the blog party. The clasp is just right as a focal- nicely done!

    1. Thanks Lisa. This is the first time I have used a clasp as focal. Clasps are actually the step-children in my world since they are always hidden by hair ;-) But this one needed to be the center of attention..

  47. Ohhh, my goodness! Everything's beautiful, but I love the way you attached the peacock focal best of all.

  50. I would have gone nuts with that many focals... in a good way ! I love how you used the peacock, though. And you used the clasp in such a nifty way, I agree that it so deserves to be seen front and center !

    1. Thanks Audrey! Am still wondering what to do with the rest of the focals. Hopefully something will come about soon!

  51. I love what you made with your soup. Wow, that Bead Cruise really set you up! I love the peacock focal and the bail you made for it. It's perfect. My favorite is probably the key "focal" you made from the clasp. I love that knotted look!

  52. What awesome focals you got to work with. I love the way you put the toggle in the front as a pendant. I probably would have done the same thing.

  57. Those are both beautiful designs. That key clasp certainly deserved to be a focal, and the knotted cord is a great match to it.
