8th Bead Soup Blog Party

It’s that time again. Time to share the love of beading with new people and be challenged at the same time. The Bead Soup Blog Party is hosted by Lori Anderson. Her and her family have been wonderful in taking the time to organize this social event. To see what she’s up too and planning for the future check it out below.



On May 10th all participants did their blog reveals of their creations. I have been busy with work and honestly lazy with what down time I have had. Almost two weeks late and I feel horrible but I’m here now! My sincerest apologize to my partner and our host Lori Anderson.

What is a Bead Soup Blog Party you may ask. Well it is where strangers get paired to send each other a personal collection of beads that has at the very least; a clasp, focal and some beads. This is a great way to take on a beading challenge since you never know what will be received and to meet new fellow bead enthusiasts.  Check out what soups people have received at the groups 8th Bead Soup Blog Party Pinterest board, so many beautiful bead soups to be seen!

Here is what I sent my partner Shiraz.

Serpentine (tube on left), Carnelian, Tiger's eye and seed beads (tube on upper right), tree vessel metal focal, metal leaves, various wood beads, orange resin beads, leather scraps and gold wire mesh ribbon (lower right tube)

I got paired with Shiraz Biggie, she lives on the east coast, getting a PhD in Theater History and Theory and does beading as a hobby. Check out the awesome piece she made with this soup at http://secretsongdesigns.blogspot.com/

Here is what I created with it!

I made two pieces using only things from my soup besides the wire and cord.

Bead Soup Blog Party Challange #8: Piece 1

For my first piece I used the tear drop grey stones, glass pearls, pearl diamonds, and various crystals in shades of brown and teals. I wanted to make teardrops dangles but I didn’t have any head pin that matched the color I was after so I bulled out my 20g bronze wire and made swirled head pins. While the beads were laid out on my beading board they started reminding me of the ocean. Blues of the sky and water, browns like the sand and drift wood and grey like the stones that scatter across the beach.

BSBP#8 piece1

The bottom two strands I made into chains then attached them to the beading wire strand.

BSBP#8 ClaspOriginally I wanted the clasp to be off to the side so it would be shown off but with the triple layer it was not working out well. The tear drop beads are flowing in different directions to give the piece a little extra interest. I used blue beading wire to draw the theme together, even though it is very subtle I like the way it turned out. This pieces most challenging thing was getting the chain layers to hang properly. It took a lot of finessing but ended well.

My second piece I used the focal that my partner Shiraz handmade out of clay. I wanted to keep this piece very simple as to not take about from Shiraz’s piece.

BSBP#8 Piece2I used yellow, blue, purple and lavender hemp to tie all the color in the focal and the beads. Shiraz also made the beads to go with the pendent!

BSBP#8 clasp2For the clasp I just did a simple loop and knot.

BSBP#8 Piece2I randomly grabbed two strands and made overhand knots working my way to almost center and adding one of the beads. I continued on this way till the necklace length was even with the beads falling on opposite sides. Then I went back to attach the pendent with a separate jump ring so the pendent faced forward. I enjoy the lightheartedness of this piece.

Once again thank you so much to Shiraz Biggie and Lori Anderson.

  1. Both of your pieces are such unique designs. I like that you kept it simple with the butterfly pendant and love the colors you chose for it. Nicely done!

  2. Sierra, your designs are pretty and original… I love that you stayed true to your soup 🙂

  3. Even before you said so, the first necklace reminded me of a place with many beach finds – great concept and elaborate design! I like the many strands, mirroring the focal’s vivid colors and the two chunki beads you used to make it poo in the second necklace!
