Today is the Bead Soup Blog Party reveal!! Today is also the letter "L" for the Blogging from A-Z challenge.
So for the letter L - I will say, L is for Lori - our delightful host of the Bead Soup Blog Party. Lori has been hosting this party for years, and it's been a wonderful success and so much fun for beaders around the world!
There were so many participants for this year's Bead Soup Blog Party (BSBP), that Lori put us in groups and today willk be the second reveal date for all our partners.
My partner was Kepi, of "A little of this, a little of that." I've actually known Kepi for a while now because we met through our blogs, so I was very excited to be her partner!
She sent me a wonderful soup!
I played with this soup like crazy. As you can see with the above photo I originally planned a peyote bail, however, when I proceeded to make a rope for it, I didn't like the direction I was going. I also made a peyote/herringbone teardrop, an embellished right-angle weave rope, a few purple discs and so on ..... but none of it was working for me! Finally I told myself to KISS....."keep it simple, stupid"! So I did.
I just did a simple seed bead bail, with some black silk cord. The clasp Kepi included was so darling.
So I worked up a multi strand with lots of brown beads, and made this necklace:
Many thanks to Kepi for the delightful soup! And many thanks to Lori for hosting this fun event!
