Bead Soup Blog Party 6, reveal 2

Sama postaus suomeksi -täällä-

OMG! Getting a Horn of Plenty of bead soups from my swap partner, Rita from Toltec Jewels / Jewel School Friends, I was just extatic making my pieces :-)

Yes, I got two Soups, tropical and fossil. Thanks to our hostess Lori Anderson/Pretty things for pairing us! Rita is such a wonderful, warm person!


I'm showing these necklaces first and then earrings and bracelets. I have still ideas for remaining soup, but I hope you enjoy these numerous pieces today! (You can click all the photos bigger and I'm sorry we did not have sun and bright on all of these days.)

'Tropical flight'


' Tropical Garden' 

Polymer hibiscus pendant from Tina Holden, you cant't see the half of it's beauty in the photo! I gave the small brass keys some vintaj patina to match them with the colours. This tunrned out even better than I thought.


Shamballah rounds with stamped sterling links on the left. I also got those lovely genuine rubies, not treated, a great plum colour in them!



I fell in love with the Iris-toggle by Jill MacKay the first moment I saw it! And because I made the necklaces without clasp, I paired this LovelyOne with a huge Lapis slab I had just waiting, add of the bold green silk - colours of Iris in this bangle don't you think? The bangle has not left my wrist since!



For the other one I had the blue coral links made with my own 12mm beads (I got small coral rounds from Rita and they will be a necklace! She did not know I fancy the blue coral, I was lucky!) I just added the most charming hill tribe flowers from Rita and the big sterling bead for a bracelet.

That was tropical, do you still have strength for Fossil? Please, do!

I got the sunstones and the most lovely 'painting with fire' - heart and the fabulous copper toggle (Lisa Liddy). Added some czech glass beads and a wooden bead from my stash.

Do you remember this fossil pendant ( Wrapped up in Magic by Audrey Allen) from the post when I first told you about my soups?! Amazing and one of a kind, rare and rough beauty!


I repeated the swirls of the copper frame with the vintaj wire swirls around the smooth sari silk and


this silk jus happened to have the embroidered paisley pattern with the same leaf motif which is highlighted in the fossil stone dating back 30 million years! This did not really need anything more but I added one sea urchin spike there.





Now, thank you for visiting, thank you if you had time for all the photos, and hop for another blog now!
Remember to visit my friend Rita to see what she made out of these, I tell you, she made wonders!

  7. No onpas monenlaista kaunista eikä katseltava lopu kesken! Punaisen hehku jää päälimmäiseksi mieleen. Tuo risareunainen silkkinauha näyttää ihanan ylellisen runsaalta (mutta lähteekö se purkautumaan lisää?). Rannekoru on mehukas, siitä en minäkään luopuisi. Kansainvälistä mutta persoonallista tyyliä, hyvä tyttö.

    Vähän putoan kärryiltä englannin kanssa... Kyse on siis jostakin Korukopla-tyylisestä haasteesta, mutta isossa mittakaavassa? Pikku tiivistelmä suomeksi meille maalaisille olisi kiva, jos jaksat vielä.

    1. Othel, kiitos :-) Jos katsot vaikka tuolta sivupalkista otsikon 'helmikeitoksen aineksia' niin löytyy suomeksikin asiata ;-) Sinun keramiikkaa muuten lähti tämän vaihdon parilleni, saas nähdä mitä syntyy!
      Ajattelin laittaa suomeksi tämän saman heti kun kerään voimia ;-D

  12. Hengästyttävän huikeita kaikki! Onpa sulla ollut töitä paiskittavana. Olet koputellut korukaupallisen katseltavaa. Kyllä nämä katsella jaksaa, kun joku on ne jaksanut tehdäkin, plus suunnitella, koota lisävärkit, sovittaa saamiinsa tarvikkeisiin... Osaat käyttää noita risareunasilkkejä uskomattoman taitavasti. Tuo fossiilikoru on kyllä huippu! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I couldn't say which is THE jewelry which I would like to take. These all is so beatiful.
    ♥♥♥

  16. Ihastuksen huokaus ja takaisin katsomaan....

  17. I love how you have wrapped the wire around the sari silk. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Upeita tuotoksi :)Varsinkin tuo fossiiliriipus koru ja tuo toinen punasävyinen kaulakoru, ihania :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ensimmäisenä ajattelin, että huisin paljon kaikkea. Sitten keskityin katselemaan, todella upeita koruja. Nauhallinen rannekoru on mahtava, ihastuttavat värit. Samoin tuo punainen koru, siinä on niin ihanaa lämpöä ja tunnelmaa. Pidän kovasti myös tuosta sinisestä rannekorusta. Ja korvikset jotka menevät "eri-tahtiin" ovat niin sinua, luovaa, kaunista ja uniikkia. Virtuaalihaluas mahtavasta suorituksesta ♥

    ReplyDelete
  59. Margareta,
    How wild is it that we both created 9 pieces without knowing we'd do so? Thank you for being my BSBP6 partner. You are wonderful and kind, a beautiful artist and friend, and I'm honored to be your partner! Everything you've created is so beautiful! I love how you have given each jewelry design your special "Mags" style -- that unique touch that is the art of Margareta! Your tropical jewelry is light, feminine and elegant; such uplifting art. Your fossil designs are rich and warm, thoughtful and compelling. I love it all!
    Tropical Flight: this necklace seems to tell a full, magnificent story. The dragonfly focal and the "appreciate" bead, the gorgeous Barbara Bechtel (Second Surf) watercolor clay components and bright silver create a lovely summer day, and flight across water or evening (the pearls) to tranquility.
    Tropical Garden: With the patina keys, your jewelry becomes "a secret garden" -- lovely and wild, magical. The cool little leaves between the hibiscus and the panda beads are my favorite part of the necklace! A true garden.
    The Austrian crystal Shamballa bead earrings are bright and playful; and the ruby earrings are so perfectly wrapped -- true wire art. The design is scrumptuous and cool!
    Your bracelets are both so modern and chic: the iris bracelet's beautiful fabric, pretty color wire, and lapis focal are stunning and soft, and your blue coral bracelet is luxurious. Simply lovely.
    Your copper heart necklace is so pretty -- with color, texture, and style galore! The pretty wooden charm and red czech beads compliment the soup ingrediants perfectly! As does the simple sari ribbon with incredible wire stations -- you created the most beautiful necklace for the pendant, and you complimented/ accented Audrey's wire wrap style perfectly!
    Gorgeous, gorgeous creations!
    I had a wonderful time, gracias!:) Rita
