8th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal

Hi all my fellow Jewelry/Artisan Bloggers. Well to start with I would like to talk about my amazing partner. Her name is Jelveh Jaferian. Jelveh is an amazing Lampwork bead Artist and Jewelry designer. She is just brilliant. Her beads are beautiful and I hope you will all visit her blog http://jelvehdesigns.blogspot.com/ Jelveh sent me a beautiful soup as you can see in the following pic. I have to admit I failed to take pics of the soup I sent Jelveh. I boxed it all up then realized oops I forgot to take the pics. So I am hoping that Jelveh got some pics of it. If not no prob...Well it took me forever to find the time and the inspiration and motivation to come up with a few designs which were not what I wanted to create but I was down to the wire and had to get with the program and find my muse and design something. I hope you see something that you like. I do however have to apologize I am not a photographer as you will notice. So I guess I will stop stalling and post the pics of the jewelry that came out of my soup. Oh and by the way I have two other pieces that are almost done so I will post them also sometime today. Here is the url to my partners blog site: www.jelvehdesigns.com/

Here is the link to the list of blogs participating in this hop... http://www.prettythingsblog.com/2014/05/welcome-to-8th-bead-soup-blog-party.html/ Okay I added the last three ...I tried to show all the beautiful Lampwork beads Jelveh made and sent me...I also made The unakite earrings using components Jelveh sent me...In the little charm bracelet I left room for addition of charms from the travels or events in the owners life. In each design you will see pieces my partner sent me joined with some of my own stash...Okay well I hope you all enjoy and hope you have time to leave comments. Well it is bed time now after 3:00 a.m. here ... My pillow is calling my name ...Night all I will check back later today and spend the day hopping through all your blogs and leaving comments for you all...

  32. Jelveh is one of the very first lampwork artists I learned about early in my career, and she made me see the difference between factory lampwork and the good stuff. You did some great things, a LOT of great things! The rings are really well done -- mine don't come out that nice, especially with all those nice neat wraps at the back. I'm in LOVE with her hearts, and the coils made that special. Adore the bead focal in the first bracelet, and the earrings with all those Swarovskis -- I know how much work that takes!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to add the extra pictures, too! And if you want any photo tips, email me or message me in a couple of weeks!
