This party was inspired by the amazingly talented Lori Anderson's new book Bead Soup. And now it's time for the reveals.
I ended up making two pieces with the mix, separating out the clasp and the owl focal.
The pearls and bead caps seemed so formal, I decided to separate them out from the owl and include them with the gold triangular clasp.
Not too surprisingly, I found myself creating beaded beads to round out the necklace. I think the blue frosted glass adds a bright touch.
The solution came at Bead Fest, in the form of a tumbled glass ring by Kathy of Trinket Foundry. A freeform beaded branch and some 'sky' tie him into his environment. I think this will be a fun brooch to wear.
