The Soup is Done

No matter that I chose the last reveal date, it truly did arrive and with it the end of my procrastination time.  My partner Kathleen Lange Klik had to change her reveal date to the first choice which was July 28.  If you missed her post, you can see the fantastic things she did with the beads I sent her here.

Now I will show you what I came up with with the ingredients she sent to me.  I really do like what I came up with.

         First a necklace.  I don't often wear necklaces but I even took a picture of this one on.  The lighting wasn't very good near the only mirrors in our apartment but I'm going to post the pic anyway.  The necklace has both the pendant and the clasp, which are the 2 requirements of the hop.

And here it is on me.  I think it's very fun.  It includes the pendant, clasp, chain, paper beads, disc and on of the large dyed magnesite labeled "just for fun".  It happened to be dyed teal which is one of my absolutely favorite colors so I had to use it.

Then for the first time I managed to make a couple of extra things by the reveal date.  I know, hard to believe that the master procrastinator managed to do more than the requirement.  I'm working on it, maybe by the next reveal I'll be able to use as many of the beads as many of the other artists (including my partners).  I managed to come up with 2 pairs of earrings as well.  One I added wire lace to hold the ceramic large hole beads flanked by the crackle glass beads slipped inside.  The second was just a fun combination of the extras.  Thanks for stopping by to see what I've done.  Hopefully the links below will take you to the other soup reveals.  If not visit Lori, our awesome hostess and the artist who came up with the party.  She's even written a book:)
