It's Reveal Day for the Creative Chaos Challenge....

Great day for the net to be acting up...  It's reveal day for the

What we received...picture borrowed from 
Skye sent out the challenge and asked for participants that were willing to try their hand making jewelry pieces out of whatever was sent their way.  I'm a baby in the jewelry design world but thought "Why not sign up; you won't get it anyway."  Guess what....I was so shocked to learn that I was the chosen as a participant. A few weeks later I received my package with a great mix of things I had no idea what to do with.

 How would I ever get this challenge completed.  I do lots of beading and have dabbled with wire wrapping.  I did research once I received my package and did my best.  Let me know what you think.



Thanks to my Katie Beth for being my model.  Here is a link to photos in another forum...If you can't see the pics well here take a peak at my FB page....under mobile uploads...

Now go check out everyone else creation. Thanks! Sandra McGriffShawn Marie Myke-MillsMarge BeebeTammie Tusher EverlySarah GoodePaula Winchester Hisel

6th Annual Bead Soup Reveal number reveal date....

Pretty Things - Bead Soup Blog Party

It's finally reveal day for me and my Partner Terry Carter for the 6th Bead Soup blog Party.  Check out all of the 3rd reveal participants on Lori Anderson's blog: borrowed your picture Lori....

My partner, Terry Carter, sent me this great Bead Soup mix to help me get creative.  I pondered and pondered and kept thinking beach.....don't ask me why.

I wanted to do so much more with my soup but my husband became ill half way through the reveals.  I still got to do a bit of a beachy theme

and I just loved how the hand made beads came out in the earrings....


Some of the great pearls and pink crystals I placed on some memory wire for a quick and classy bracelet.

I needed some pink for my wardrobe...
I'm so excited.Photo

I really had fun with the Bead Soup and I hope to participate again.  Take a peak at my partner Terry Carters blog.....

She made so many fantastic pieces from the soup I sent to her.  Here are a few sneak peaks....borrowing your pics Terry....

Thank you so much Terry for being my partner...I made a new friend.  Lori, thanks so much for doing the Bead Soup blog Party and allowing all of us to participate.  I had fun and learned so much from every one.
