Bead Soup - Revealed At Last




Well I will have to say this has to be the hardest challenge I have ever had. It was totally out of my comfort zone. But, I guess that was what a challenge is all about. I LOVE color and the pallet was black, white with a touch of brown.

Before:
I added some dyed red coral to give it a pop of color, along with a copper ring that I enameled.

I hope you all enjoy and I cannot wait to see the rest of the soups! My bead soup partner Patti reveals her piece on June 23rd. Here is the complete list of reveals:

Great color combo. This is a great everyday piece (at least for me since I wear black most days--LOL).
Bead Happy!
Michelle

very nice!its kind of funny when I first looked at the first pic, I thought the focal was a rabbits foot, I thought it was rather odd.....I do like the colors, and your addition of the red really set it off nicely

Cathryn said...

I have to add my admiration to the others in your creative talents! The colors are really smooth before it POPS like you wanted! This is a great piece of art and I would wear this proudly!

Spirited Earth said...

this is a lovely necklace..good work on the challenge

Kella said...

I love how you added colour to make it more to your style, it really completed it well. I wish I could wire wrap a focal like you did mine never comes out righth but yours looks gorgeous.

Keeping the clasp up front is a nice touch too.

Nancy said...

That touch of red just pulls it all together!! Fabulous necklace.

Pearl and Pebble said...

I love the enameled ring and coral you added-this is a great color combination! Your design is great:)

Pretty Things said...

I love what you did! Yes, working outside your comfort zone IS what this party was all about. If you saw my reveal, I had the same issue -- I'm a color freak, and I was working with darker colors, but am tickled with what I came up with.

I hope you ended up enjoying yourself, and do another party with me!
