The time for Lori Anderson’s Bead Soup Blog Party 7, second reveal is finally here. If you missed the first reveal, the list is here. Hopefully, you saw my previous post about my partner, the lovely Klaudete Koon, and what she sent me but here is a little reminder:
This hop has many participants so I did not write a play this time (I know you were wondering…) because we all have a lot of hopping to do. So…
This includes the first clasp I have ever made, so be kind to me!
This is where I had a little emergency…I broke one of the cord ends that Klaudete sent me to finish the Viking Knit and I already had the glue on the ends…setting. Eek! So I grabbed the only silver-tone end caps that would fit and did my best. I don’t usually work in silver a whole lot since I love brass, so I was lucky to have anything on hand.
All the pictures previous to this next one, are the extra pieces I made when I found out we had a little more time for our reveal. I spent most of my time beforehand painting this…
I do love the vintage copper stackable petals and copper plated flowers. I used Victorian glass buttons for the two side flowers and added the vintage crystals. I tried to match the colors of the beads Klaudete gave me with a blend of Vintaj patina paint, Adirondack Alcohol Inks and Lumiere paint.
Here’s the set together:
Please go visit my partner to see what she created with the Soup I sent her. The rest of the Blog Hop participants are here:
