Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal - Cue Fireworks!!!

Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!

A Bead Soup Blog Party is a large collaboration project, brainchild of Lori Anderson, for lovers of beads in which each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending the following: a focal, a special clasp (not just a lobster claw) and some coordinating spacers or beads.

Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest and choose to use the coordinating beads or not.

Here's what I made!

Mistress Boleyn's Necklace


Found object focal, center made with lampwork ruffle bead and headpin by Lyn Foley, stacked on a polymer clay disk and wirework by Stories They Tell


Antique lion drawer pull clasp with hook from old coveralls

My partner was the talented and generous Lyn Foley, who sent me a fabulous selection of items. It was a real challenge to make the flirty, sparkling lampwork ruffle beads work with the steampunk-flavored focal and clasp!

In my blog on Monday, I'll share my inspiration for this piece and break down the construction, and show other photos of the details, as well as the photo of the components I started with. Thanks for visiting!

  1. Christine, This is so beautiful! I love what you did with Lyn's focal ... adding it to one of your to make it truly the focus of your piece. So much detail shows great design and craftsmanship. xo

    ReplyDelete
  2. Christine, What a fabulous piece. I love how you worked with the focal and the wonderful lion and how in the end it all went together so well. I will look for your construction post. But right now I am feeling so warm and inspired by that beautiful necklace you made.

    ReplyDelete
  3. WOW! That necklace is wonderful. I Love, Love (have to repeat) what you did with the ruffles, etc. That focal is stupendous. The entire necklace is really a showpiece. I am looking forward to your Monday post where you'll talk about the process. The round beads you made so perfectly complement everything else. It looks like you patinaed the lion - and how inventive to use the coveralls hook as the rest of the clasp. Bravo on the entire piece. Please be sure to send the photos to Lori,your work deserves to be seen and shared in print.
    Thank you for being my partner in the party.

  4. oh WOW Christine, you made something truly amazing here. i love that beautiful wire flower and it sets off the focal beads beautifully. this may be my favorite reveal so far!

    ReplyDelete
  5. This is perfection! I am sitting here and am feeling so small. But in a good way.
    Wow!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Very beautiful work putting those amazing pieces together! Nice detail. Thanks for sharing the close up of the main pieces - they're incredible.

    ReplyDelete
  7. What a fabulous combination of opposites. I love how the bright colors in the focal and bead strand or toned down by the deep red/burgundy bead on the focal and the strand of pearls. What a fabulous creation!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Amazing focal! Those colors setting off the beads are just delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  9. What a cool piece! I love the wire wrapping on the flower pendant! Very creative piece!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Christine, I'm really looking forward to your discussion of process. I've been staying up late to read "The Magician Templar" which takes place quite awhile before Ms. Boleyn, so this clever and beautifully done piece speaks to me of misty, mystical England, treasure chests of gold and gems from Outremer, and perhaps a whiff of incense and spice.

    ReplyDelete
  11. absolutely stunning focal!! I love the colors of this pieces and the finished design..cool dish!

    ReplyDelete
  12. This is def. a gallery piece! Stunning in design and function!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Very cool, fabulous and original piece - I love it! The focal is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Such a unique piece. I love the added detail with the lion drawer pull. So unexpected!

    ReplyDelete
  15. The talent of this Bead Soup Party has totally blown me away and made me thank Lori for bringing such talent into my life! However, this work of art that you call a necklace is awesome and breathtaking! I'm in total awe of your talent, creative design, and artistic nature! Congratulations on a stunning piece!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Christine, I think my jaw dropped when I first saw your stunning necklace. I am really in awe of how you developed such a complex and beautiful design. Your focal piece is out of this world, especially your wirework! You are just brilliant, my friend!
    And what a great idea to show pictures front, then go in to more discussion about the compostion and construction later. I'm looking forward to learning more about how you created your necklace, fit for Mistress Boleyn!

    ReplyDelete
  17. WOW! I had no idea how you were going to work things together, but I must say, you hit this out of the park. I didn't have an idea of scale on the lion, either, and I really, really like how it fits in this piece. The focal -- stunning. And polymer clay and glass DO go together! I just sat and stared at this for a while before commenting.

    Simply stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  18. OMG! I actually gasped when I saw this Christine, and a tear of joy may or may not have trickled down my cheek ;-)
    That lion is outstanding. A buckle from overalls? Brilliant! (Just be sure your husband's pants aren't falling down when he works in the garden ;-)
    But that focal... SWOON! You amaze me every single time I come here.
    Thank you for the inspiration.
    Enjoy the day!
    Erin

  19. I have several lamp worked ruffle beads that I've never quite known what to do with. Your solution was brilliant.

    Such a fun mix of media and styles that absolutely works!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow, I'm speachless...I hate to use this word because it is so overly used...awesome!! But this necklace is awesome!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  22. Fantastic -- everything works together beautifully because of what you've added! Pieces like this are why I love this event so much; I'm so inspired!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's bright and pretty! Make sure you send a post out on the yahoo group when you put up your construction post so we know its here :) Don't want it to get lost in the insanity of the blog hop!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Christine, I decided to start at the bottom of the list (I'm in the middle at #95). I hope you get a really good response from the swap/hop -- So much fun!

    I have to say I am bowled over by your gorgeous piece. I see the Tudor Rose in your pendant -- faublous!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Still working my way through all the blogs. You did an awesome job in designing this necklace. And I enjoyed your comments in a later post regarding your thought process.
