BEAD SOUP #2 (FOR ME) HOPE I DID EMA'S BEADS JUSTICE....

View one of the necklace.  I thought the boros screamed for pearls.
View two of the necklace with more detail to include the charm.

I'm loving making wire wrapped rings right now and these Tree of Life ring is an example of what I'm making.  It is huge, by ring standards, and I'm loving it.  My wire wrapping leaves a lot to be desired, but I love MY new ring.  It is surprisingly comfortable to wear.  And wear it I will.

I'm off to Bead Soup Blog hop.  Enjoy everyone!!

Love and peace to all my fellow bead heads

THANK YOU SO MUCH EMA.  YOU ARE THE BEST!  IT WAS SO EASY TO WORK WITH SUCH AMAZING BEADS.

Beautiful work, Elizabeth! I love the way you combined so many elements and still made it look lightweight and delicate. And that ring is awesome! Will you teach me out to make wire-wrapped rings and things? Take care, Cherin

You are so right! The boro beads scream for pearls! Perfect compliment! I love how you worked the links together. Beautiful necklace for a beautiful woman! Love the ring--it's big but you can wear it well! :)

Oh, coolness! Nice combination of elements and textures for a very kinetic experience. :) Such a nice artsy look they all have! Kudos on making two pieces with your soup. :D I'm really loving that ring, too. Nice work!

Pretty Things said...

I'm in love with huge rings, too! I've ordered several sterling ones from Etsy and adore them!

Love the boro -- take a shot against white and see how it makes the color change. That's what I love about boro, how it changes color depending upon what it's next to.

Great job!

The cord interlaced in the chain is a fabulous idea. I'll definitely keep that in mind for future pieces, Thanks for sharing ^_^ Virginie ViviBijoux.com

Hi Elizabeth. Fabulous! I can't believe you made a ring with that focal, that is really awesome. I used soda lime glass in the making of the lampwork beads.
What a wonderful experience Bead Soup has been. Thank you for sharing the journey with me.

The ring is wild!! I don't know much about Boro beads but they are pretty with the pearls. Would love to see them with less color around them so they woudl stand out. Nice work.

I am not good at wire wrapping. Kudos to you for even doing it.
The necklace reminds me of the beach. Either it is me or lots of other people want Spring!!
