Lori Anderson has organized a fantastic HUGE wonderful party for us!

And I
am away
for my anniversary weekend
my our own


so I am ReVEALing my SOUP 

my stupendously fantastic generous partner
Linda Djokic of lutkaandco

She sent me all

isn't she wonderful - so many, many goodies!!
I created this these:

and because my mumma is a gifted energy worker:
a Pendulum.

Thank you Linda, for the wonderful 'goodie bag' of challenging inspiration.
 The best of ingredients makes the best soup!!

as if you're not going to see that line a lot this weekend! ;)
The rules were to use the focal and the clasp, but there were soooo many fantastic large focal beads,
I just
to use as many as time (and my old friend procrastination) would

And I'm so HAPPY I did!!!!
... join me next week, when I'll be returning you to your regularly scheduled meander
introducing you to the other great cooks
I've discovered!

Have a tasty weekend!

All are so cute. I can never figure out how people get those beads on the keys. :) And I love the way you encased that one bead in the silver wire. Very nice,. Enjoy your anniversary.

I love all your pieces, most of all I love how you suspended that purple (plum?) bead.

CraftyHope said...

All of your pieces are really beautiful. They are simple, but still stunning. My favorite has to be the one with the green hollow bead as the focal. The vibrancy of the green really catches my eye! Nice job!
