BSBP 2013 Reveal!!

You may be thinking I am a little late, but I’m not. My reveal date got pushed back a bit, which was entirely fine as I’m always accepting of more time.

So… today is the day! Yay!

If you don’t remember what I was working with, see this post.

I decided to use the Amazonite focal, Aquamarine rounds, Rose Quartz tubes, silver spacers and of course, the gorgeous clasp that was in my soup.

I added another Rose Quartz focal, some peachy Pink Biwa Pearls, chain, Pink waxed linen thread and Sterling Silver (used to be clasp) bail, from my own stash.

And voila!








I have always loved pale blue, pink and grey/silver together. It is such a calming and soothing colour combination. I was also really excited to use up that Silver spiral piece. It was half of a clasp, I don’t know what happened to the other half. HA! So, I just riveted it together and made a bail! I really like it.




I had a lot of fun working with this soup! I have to thank Andra again for sending me such lovely things to work with and of course, Mrs. Lori Anderson for putting this whole thing together. It is a huge undertaking organising this many people, I’m sure. She is amazing!

Now, be sure to stop by Lori’s blog for the full list of participants and show your support for all of the amazingly talented crafty folk taking part!

Thanks to you as well for stopping by to check out my reveal!
