Soup, anybody?

Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!

What is a Bead Soup Blog Party?

Each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending the following:

~ A focal
~ A special clasp (not just a lobster claw)
~ Some coordinating spacers or beads

Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest, and choose to use the coordinating beads or not.

Do you remember the amazing soup ingredients my partner Nicki sent to me?
By the way: don't miss to visit her blog to see the incredible necklaces and earrings she made from the bead soup I sent to her!!!

And here's what I made:

Here comes the main bead soup necklace with the beautiful pendant Nicki made especially for me and the matching clasp that was in my soup:

I have layered the flower pendant with a mother of pearl flower.

Awesome bead soup!
