Letting the Soup Settle

    The Bead Soup Blog Party reveal #3 has been postponed for another week. Saturday April 27th will be the final reveal date. Please come back then for Part 2 of my reveal.
    Our gracious hostess Lori Anderson    http://www.prettythingsblog.com/     is out of commission again. She has sure been through a lot. I know that we are all hoping and praying that she'll make a speedy recovery.
    To hold us over, I'd like to share a little bit of my partner, Kayla Potega's reveal. As well as some of my favorites.
    I have realized that in my state of delirium as I posted in the wee hours last week that I completely forgot to post anything about the soup I sent to Kayla. So, long over due, here's what Kayla had to work with.
                  The Focal -

 I usually stamp my copper work with PS, but I couldn't resist using our initials, since we share the same, for our collaborative project. 

Sari silk ribbon, Turquoise pillows, glass leaves, Mykonos ceramic beads,  bronze caged lanterns, Czech glass flowers, skeleton key, green glass vintage buttons, chevron glass beads, copper balled head pins, flower shaped fresh water pearls, Czech glass trumpet flowers, Venetian glass, handmade swirly copper S links, Millefiori glass, beaded copper paisley connector, cloisonne, iridescent glass tubes, the recipe book, earth swirl lampwork glass beads made by my mother, hand made jump rings, faceted citrus glass cubes, Swarovski crystal bi-cones, and handmade bejeweled flourish clasp. All the copper work was done by me (with the exception of the balled head pins and key).

    Kayla  made some amazing things from her soup. First up is my favorite, because she named it in my honor. How tickled am I! "Pyxee's Dance"  features Sari silk ribbon, copper swirl  links handmade by me, and lampwork glass beads made by my mother. A 3 artist collaboration. How cool is that.
    If you haven't yet, go check it out.   http://www.teejewelry.blogspot.com/

Then check out my "BeDazzled" board on Pinterest for some of my favorite reveals from the 1st and 2nd rounds.    http://pinterest.com/pyxeestyx/bedazzled/

Don't forget to stop back next Saturday, April 27, for the new final reveal date, to check out my Part 2. I'm really excited to show off all my handmade components!!!

............and if you haven't already, stop by and buy Lori a slice of pie (or some painkillers or something). She deserves so much for all she endures to pull off this awesome blog party.  http://www.prettythingsblog.com/

  1. I'm trying to tame my Yahoo inbox and came across this post you wrote for the last BSBP and I can't believe I didn't comment on it! Talk about being WAY behind o.O

    I just wanted to tell you again how much I adored the soup you sent me! Especially that incredible focal-I hadn't even thought about it but we DO share the same initials don't we?! :D
