Soup's On! And Blog Party Is Here!!

Happy September 17th - Blog Hop Party Day and time for the big 'Reveal'!!

Lori Anderson organizes this wonderful event a few times a year and I was so happy to participate for this one.  Over 300 people (oh my, the organization task this must have been for Lori!!!) are partying today and want you to join us by blog hopping to see all the lovely creations we've made with our partner's goodies they sent us.  Here is the link all the partners....

Lori Anderson's  Blog Soup Party Partners!  Click HERE!

There are so many of us this time around it will take some time to see what everyone was up too.  Luckily the party will last all month.  Several people will be having give aways and other fun things.  I have some ideas swimming around in my head too so you might want to check back in a few days.  Have fun!!

So....wanna see my goodies from Carrie Tahquechi?????  She makes the prettiest lampwork beads and sent me 5 gorgeous ones; one large and 4 descending size beads in blues and white along with all sorts of fun and pretty beads to go with....even some pretty white ribbon!  I always admire the pretty ribbons in some artist's  jewelry but have never tried it myself.  Perfect time to try new things, right?  Tried lots of new things with my necklace!  I used everything Carrie sent!  Wanted to see if I could incorporate everything in one piece.  I love what I made--Mahalo Nui Loa Carrie!!

Well, I talk to much!  You've been waiting so patiently to see what Carrie sent :)  Here you go....


Aren't they just beautiful?!!  Okay... I won't make you wait any more.... Here is my necklace...



I really like my necklace!  I especially liked trying new things!  Thanks Carrie and a BIG thank you to Lori for hosting our party!!  The only things I added were the dark blue hands and the little blue heart.  They are some pretty beads I have been saving in my stash for quite awhile--they had been waiting just for this I'm sure.

Oh...and be sure and check out Carrie's Blog for her party favors!!  And the other blogs of party goers!

Cris its fantastic! I love it! I might have to make something similar for myself, I like the dangles you added, they bring out the deep blue in the beads even more.

Mylene said...

Cris, it's a beautiful piece... I especially like how well it drapes when you hang it vertically. Doesn't the blue play off really well against the white cats eyes? Love it!

Christine Hansen said...

Cris - I love love LOVE what you did with your Bead Soup! Congrats on working the ribbon into your design - it's kind of fun to work outside of one's comfort zone, isn't it? The blue and white palette is sooo refreshing, and I agree - I think the little blue hands and heart were patiently waiting for this project to come along. Well done, my dear! xoxo, c
