7th bead soup blog party with Lori :)

Once again I have put my name forward for another bead soup organised by Lori Anderson.  BIG Thank YOU for putting this together again.

My partner is Caron Reid her blog is

she sent me this beautiful collection of Moukaite Jasper Beads that are mined in Australia'

So I have made these ...

Necklace - Using one of the larger pieces I double sided bead stitched around securing the pendant before adding to smaller bead then did a stitch which required beading each bead on twice before hanging with the ribbon for an adjustable length. 
Bracelet is a chunky style bracelet using all of Caron's beads. 
With matching earrings.

Thank you Caron for the beautiful beads and Lori for organising a great event.  Please follow the link below to see more.  There is so much talent out there :)
