Bead Soup Reveal!!!

Oh man, I meant to have this up few hours ago, but my camera has been giving me some problems, I might have faulty battery. So unfortunately I had to depend on my cell phone camera, which is not as good even on the best day as I would prefer.

How ever, here is my image of the necklace I made from the supplies provided by my partner Melissa Meman. She did provide more material than I was with my inexperienced jewelry designing able to use, but I am going to add on to my piece some ear rings, bracelet and maybe also ring, and will be using most of the supplies she provided. I wish I had time to get some of those pieces also done for this reveal, but due to being sick and working 13 hour days, time seemed to slip away too fast. I also did not want to add too much to the piece and distract from the beautiful pendant and clasp Melissa made herself.

That's so beautiful!
Upea, rauhallinen tunnelma, Pia!

Pia Kaven said...

Thank you PiPa, I was so afraid to do too much to it and take away from the gorgeous pendant.

Pia Kaven said...

Thanks Mags! Mielellani kuulen moisen kommentin, rauhallinen oli tavoitteenani, joten nyt hieman rauhoittaa mielta etta se on myos valittynyt muille. :)

Pia - I am so sorry to be late in commenting on the absolutely gorgeous necklace you created! I love the cluster of pearls above the flower! It was so fun working with your gorgeous beads! Many of the comments I got were how wonderful your beads were!

Thanks for being a patient and gracious partner! Don't disparage your jewelry making skills!!


Rachel said...

Very pretty necklace! I would wear it in a heartbeat!

Jean A. Wells said...

Love all that bronzy goodiness. Beautiful necklace. Great job!

Pia Kaven said...

Wow, what an avalanche of the comments! Thank you everyone so much, I do not even know what to say. This warms my heart and gives me a bit more trust in myself. :o) Now I can't wait for the next soup to start, I have learned so much by just hopping on the blogs. <3

Libellula Jewelry said...

I really like the necklace you designed around her pendant. Not every necklace has to have a zillion details going on and this one proves that restraint can, indeed, be the way to go.

Kepi said...

Just beautiful! Love the necklace so versatile.

A Polymer Penchant said...

Oh that is stunning! I love the colours and texture you added with the pearls to compliment the focal Just lovely - and just right

ACBeads said...

I love your simple necklace. I'm a beginner too. This is my first Bead Soup Party.

CraftyHope said...

You did a lovely job with this. Your dangle additions draw your eye to the focal without taking away from it. Excellent job!!

Patricia Johnson said...

Beautiful job! Stunning necklace! Enjoy the hop!

Bobbie said...

The cluster of pearls is such a lovely touch for the focal -- very pretty necklace!

Nan Smith said...

Beautiful, Pia.
