BSBP Reveal!

Here, at long last, is what I made from the soup that Crystal sent me! I was a little stressed this week and I've got another project with the glass mix she sent me on deck, but I whipped this up using one of the toggles and the focal since that was the important part for the reveal!Be sure to check out my partner's blog as well (linked to her name), and happy blog hopping!

I used some coral ovals with peridot chips and green crackle glass rounds and strung it all up together..I was going to add a little extra sparkle with some of the clear glass faceted rounds Crystal sent me, but I just couldn't get it arranged right...
 And of course I didn't have nearly enough peridot chips to go with the coral, but luckily the crackle glass matched it well enough...
Only had four pieces of the coral, so I added the chain after I ran out to finish it off and put the clasp on the side--really liking that style right now...

I've got a bracelet in the works with the other pinkish purple mix Crystal sent me, but I just didn't have time to do both. Maybe I'll post picture in the next reveal date? Or sooner ;) Check out Bead Soup Blog Party for the complete list!

  6. How fun to see colors together that I'd probally never choose, but now I think they are so unusual and a surprise. I'm going to make a bead with these colors and play with the combination. Very nice job.

    1. Thanks! I loved all the beads! I wish I could have thought of something to do with all the holes in the focal, but my brain wasn't working. :/

  8. Very cute! The toggle on the side is a nice touch, and the crackle glass worked really well with the peridot.

  10. Very pretty! I love using chain at the back of my necklaces, too, because I tend to like them long and don't want so much on my neck. Well done!

  11. Great colour palette! The green really makes the red pop.
