Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!

Reveal day!  You can see what I received from my partner here!


This is the lovely focal that my partner, Kristi Brokaw made.....all dolled up with some fun fringe. 




And a shot of the entire necklace:




Matching earrings:)


I had to put the matching clasp on the side.  It is so lovely that I didn't want to hide it in the back!


I used the Amethyst and the gorgeous peals for the back and down the sides:








It's very photogenic, right?  


I don't usually love purple, I tend to go more towards the blues/greens.  But I really love the gold and purple combo I was sent.  This piece went together easily..it flowed without any second-guessing about what it wanted to be.



Now that you have seen my creation, please go check out some of the other participants!  Here's a link!

I love purple and gold together, you did wonderfully! It's so nice when the beads just sort of put themselves together isn't it? :)

I'm a very tactile person, and I want to touch that necklace! Texture, pattern, color, creative use of the beads you were given - I love it. I scrolled down to the previous post and saw the cuff bracelets too. You are one talented person! Lots of eye candy on your blog.

I love how you made sure that pretty clasp was on the side so it could be seen. It's a lovely necklace. Nice job!

What a lovely necklace, the clasp and the pendant are similar and different at the same time and the purple beads complimented the purple of the pearls

Susanm said...

Such a beautiful necklace. Love the colour and the embellishment is so intricate and unique.

stregajewellry said...

A very beautiful piece. Of course, the colors are my favs, LOL, but still, its so pretty and sort of old fashioned in a very classy way.

Dini Bruinsma said...

Tammy Adams said...

Beautiful designs. Love the beaded tassel!

Audrey Bélanger said...

Oh wow, this set is great ! Nice use of contrasting colors, and I would never have thought to use seed beads to make a tassel !

Jo-Ann said...

Wow, what a great colour palette. Love how the fringe echoes the gold on the focal. Beautiful!

Terri said...

Monique (A Half-Baked Notion) said...

Jodie, this is a brilliant and colourful design! So glad you are "converted" to purple LOL.

CraftyHope said...

There's something so. . .regal about this necklace and it's more than the purple. The chain of your necklace feels very expensive and jewel-like. It looks like it took a lot of work. Fabulous job!

Kepi said...

Beautiful, beautiful,very artistic!

Louise said...

Lavender and gold, oooh gorgeous! Love them all so much

Bev said...

Your pieces are very colorful. I like how your earrings compliment the necklace and how the focal stands out. Great job!

bairozan said...

Beautiful choice and such a complex arrangement of beads in the necklace! And the colors both complement the focal and make it stand out! But I really like the color of the beads in the earrings and how it goes with the pearls!
