Bead Soup Blog Party

It's time for another fabulous Bead Soup Blog Party hosted by the lovely, Lori Anderson. I ended up with TWO Bead Soup Party partners, this time around. Yay! A double serving of soup for me, but as it turns out, I only had time to make one batch of bead soup jewelry. I will be doing a separate post with the bead soup from my second partner, Nan Emmett of Spirited Earth at a later date, so stay tuned for that.
 Bead soup from Anna of Total Escape Clay Studio

My first partner is Anna Sabina of Total Escape Clay Studio. She is a polymer clay bead artist and she sent me the bead soup shown above. I don't usually work much with polymer beads. So, that was a little different for me. The style of Anna's beads are definitely my aesthetic, though. I crave materials that have a natural, earthy feel to them and I love creating designs with an ethnic appeal. So, of course, I really dug these faux carved-bone tribal beads and pendant. Below is the jewelry I made with Anna's polymer clay beads:

Tribal Necklace and Bracelet Set
The beads from Anna's soup are the carved "bone" beads and pendant, the fuchsia/orange swirl oval beads and a brass toggle clasp. I added copper and dark brown seed beads, copper and brass tribe nugget beads, and red and orange coco shell beads strung onto my favorite Irish waxed linen cord.
Here is a close-up of the necklace being worn. I love it and it looks totally chic with this top, if I do say so myself.

For another style option, the pendant can be removed from the necklace. Then, the necklace can be worn wrapped around the wrist as a beaded wrap bracelet. Below, I layered it with the tribal bracelet I made with Anna's beads. I love the look.
Thank you for stopping by my little blog today!
