Bead Soup Blog Party - Reveal!

At last,
The Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal Day!!!!!!
Thank you, Lori, for organizing this and for all of your helpful tips along the way!
Time has really flown.
When this started,
I was down with the flu wondering if I would ever be able to get out of bed again!
I'm afraid I sent Cindy a rather skimpy parcel.
Sorry, Cindy,
but I was sick.
Cindy was very generous with me!
here's the final result.


Isn't that pendant gorgeous?

And I had enough left over to make this.

The sugar beads are beads that I made, and the red makes each piece POP!
I plan to wear these pieces tomorrow, if I go out.
Right now,
it's -2!
I'm not sure I'll go out tomorrow.

get to the blog hop.
Be sure to visit Cindy's blog and see what she did with my Bead Soup.

Oh I love what you did with my soup!! Before I read down your blog I was thinking, Those red beads really makes these pieces POP. I wonder if Mallory made them.

Julie Nordine | Credit River Art Glass said...

Great job, Mallory!! Both pieces are just sweet. Definitely love that focal!!

Pam @ The Blue Between said...

Ah! nice! I love the asymmetry!

jamberry_song said...

Cool, very eclectic and industrial at the same time. :) I like the bracelet you made to go with it. They look really nice together! I think they would be the perfect accompaniments to the little black dress look. ;)

Very pretty set and, as always, I really enjoy seeing creations using asymmetry when done well. Your necklace is a perfect example.
