BSBP #8, Reveal!!

BSBP #8, Reveal!!

Whew! Looking back at my last blog post, I am literally stunned at how fast time goes by-whether you’re having fun or not! Luckily, I HAVE been having fun! But that is all for another blog post. Today, we are *virtually* gathered around to visit each other for this year’s 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party, hosted by the wonderful and amazing Lori Anderson of Pretty Things Blog!! In case you missed my post about the Soup sent to me by my partner in beady crime, Heather Richter of Desert Jewelry Designs, you can find it here. So without further ado, I present to you my creations with Heather’s soup!

Here is a wind chime I made using the focal agate slice and two of the bone beads Heather sent. I Originally wanted to make a necklace, but it told me that it wasn’t meant for a necklace, and well, who am I to argue with a stone! The agate slice is large, measuring nearly four inches long, so I *guess* the stone is right…. ;)
The chiming part of the wind chime are clay pipes from over the water, sent to me in a swap with Leah Curtis of Beady Eyed Bunny! I’ve had those SO long, waiting for the right inspiration! She’s a great polymer clay artist-creating hands down the neatest looking faces I’ve seen, ever! But I digress….. nothing new there, eh?
Untitled-2closeup
I love making wind chimes, especially for other people, but this is the first time I made one just for me. The clay pipes add a sweet clinking sound, and the little beads give it little dashes of extra color to keep the eye interested.

Next, I made a bracelet to go with the shiny brass toggle clasp Heather sent. I defaulted to my favorite-double Viking Knit, but this time in 24 gauge brass. Yikes!! My hands were NOT happy by time I was done, but it was well worth it!! I added a few cloisonne beads I had leftover from a redesign for my wonderful cousin, Wonder Woman and my handmade end caps. A bit of chain to make sure the toggle had the slack it needed to pull through and Voila! I love how it turned out. A nice polishing with the ol’ Sunshine cloth, and the brass shined just as bright as the clasp!

I decided I would save the rest for a rainy day-I love leftovers!!
I hope you enjoyed visiting my Reveal-please stop by Heather’s blog and see what she did with the soup I sent her!
Lori has been hosting the Bead Soup Blog Party through good days and bad. A true inspiration and role model! Please take a few moments to send her a healing thought, prayer, and general warm fuzzies. If anyone can use them, I know Lori can! If they are pink warm fuzzies, that would be even better. Til next time, my friends, keep calm and BLOG HOP!! =^..^=

  1. I love the wind chimes! Great design and very creative! I am in awe of the bracelet!!! It is such an intricate design and I really love how it was all finished! Great Job! Have a Blessed Day!!!

  2. Heather, I make chainmaille with brass (my own rings) and so I know how intense working with that metal can be — and how completely beautiful! Your Viking knit (I don’t know “double” VK.. intriguing!) bracelet is exquisite! Elegant, professional, breath-taking. As are your wind chimes for yourself! I love Leah’s work, and how perfect her tubes & the agate slice came together to become such a wonderful, magical onject d’art! You rocked BSBP8! Bravo! Happy Hopping! ♥ Rita

  3. I love that wind chime! I can almost hear the lovely clinking. The bracelet is amazing. I can’t believe how perfect the viking knit and handmade end caps are. Really great work!

  4. Very original (-: that ♥wind chime, I love♥it! And the Viking Knit bracelet, wow, it must have taken you hououours to make it… But is’s so gorgeous!

  5. I bet it was a good idea not arguing with the stone ;) wind chime is such a great idea – I almost can hear it…

  6. Wow, both pieces are stunning!! What a great idea, a wind chime. And viking knit….Always wanted to try that, but I is way to complicated for me.

  7. Now that’s thinking out of the box! The Wind Chime is so inventive! And the Viking knit bracelet is so so cool! You are one talented lady. You did a Soup-er job! (if I have repeated my commenting ..sorry about that.)

  8. People are making the most amazing assortmrnt of different things. I’ve been noting firsts and you are the first and only windchimes,but you would need those special little clay pipes to make them, wouldn’t you

  9. I believe your agate was correct. It makes a wonderful wind chime! And that bracelet is just gorgeous.

  10. I’m always interested in folks who come up with a design that is a break from making jewelry with their soup. I wouldn’t have thought to make what you did, and that is the fun in using our creativity in our own unique way. It’s great to see how beads can be put to other uses. I can imagine this hanging outside.

  11. That bracelet with the viking knit is spectacular! And I love how you made wind chimes with part of your soup. You are one clever designer!

  12. Unique and beautiful wind chime and the bracelet is gorgeous, I love viking knit and your finishing is perfect.

  13. Oh I love how original are your pieces: the windchime is such a gorgeous idea, and love the viking knit as well, I dream about giving it a try and I can see now it is really awesome

  14. I am in awe of your viking knit abilities o.o that is a beautiful bracelet. and I LOVE the windchime! the stone was right :D

  15. The windchime? Such a cool idea! And your Viking knit is amazing – it made a beautiful, beautiful bracelet!

  16. HA ! I love the wind chime ! So clever ! And the bracelet is so elegant, I could see it worn with a fancy dress, don’t you think ? I love it all !

  17. Such a great soup! A wind chime – what a beautiful and unique idea! It’s absolutely charming, Heather. As well as your viking knit bracelet. So much work you put into that – fabulous, simply fabulous!

  18. The wind chime is amazing and I personally have several of @Leah Curtis’s bead and I totally understand!! You did AMAZING…the metal work….WOW!! ~KM

  19. How creative…this is the first wind chime I’ve seen in the hop and it’s so imaginative a use of the materials. Wonderful. You’re Viking knit is great and I love it.

  20. I adore windchimes. You did a great job!

    I also love viking knit- it’s on my list of things to learn how to do.

    Have a wonderful, beautiful day!
    <3,
    Andrea

  21. Oh, that wind chime is brilliant! I would be so thrilled seeing that hang on my porch! And I just love Viking Knit, and yours is stunning! Totally worth the sore hands. Awesome work!!!

  22. Having the opportunity to see what Heather Richter was sending to Heather Otto, was like being the cat that swallowed the canary. Wondering what you would do with the Agate slice. I’m in awe with the windchime. Everytime the wind blows at your home, you will be reminded of your adventures of the 8th BSBP. So cool.

  23. Oh my gosh – I love your wind chime!!! I would have never thought of doing a piece like that for the blog hop – ingenious! Also, you created something you like to have and make beautiful music for you – I might have to do something like that because I can’t find wind chimes I like!
    Love your Viking Knit – it is gorgeous!!!

  24. The wind chimes are such a beautiful, creative idea. I love wind chimes but my husband can’t stand them so sadly we don’t have any.

  25. WIND CHIMES! Now that’s creative! I love them, too. We have some “tuned” ones from a local artist in town. I love them. And I’m thrilled that you were able to use other beads from your stash that you’ve had for a long time.

    Viking Knit — something I want to do, have the tools for, but have never done. But double Viking Knit? I’ve never heard of that! You’ll have to email me and tell me the what’s up. That turned out just gorgeous.

    Thanks for participating and doing such unique things with your soup!

  26. I love the windchime! A great use for that beautiful agate focal. And your beautiful viking knit bracelet is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Stunning wirework!

  27. I love the wind chime. Just listening to them on a windy day calms me soo much. Great job.

  28. how awesome!!!!
    I really love what you did there, so different, I would never have thought of that!
    And to me you seriously ARE the queen of VK….brass, double knit…my stomach goes in a knot just thinking of it, hahahaaaaa
    It looks stunningly regular! Awesome job!

  29. Beautiful!! I love what you did with the focal and the clasp :) glad you had fun!! I love your pieces :)
