BSBP Reveal Day is Here!!!

Edit: This was scheduled to post at midnight~
Blogger hates me:(
But still not technically late;~)

And I am TOTALLY ready.
(Thanks to a 1 week postponement☺)

HUGE Thanks to Lori Anderson for hosting such a fun party!
This is my third party and I have seriously enjoyed every one.
You can check out my first go round here and the second one here

Ok, let's get right to it, I know you have a lot of other stops to make☺

My partner this time around is Rachel Baron of

Just to refresh your memory,
here is the beautiful bead soup my
wonderful partner, Rachel sent to me.

And here is what I did with my soup.....

The first thing I made☺
I used some of the cultured sea glass,
 added some amethyst agate beads from my stash and used 
sterling silver wire to make some "rosette" wraps and clasp.

When I was a little girl my favorite colors were pink and purple.
My favorite color is red now.
Aren't you glad you know that about me? ☺

Next, I knew exactly how I wanted to use the clasp.
I love using toggles on bracelets,

I just feel like they get so much more exposure☺
For this bracelet I used some of the purty purple beads and the opalite nuggets
 from my soup and added some flowery ceramic beads
and some turquoise dyed howlite,

then I threw in some metal spacers and some dangly bits.
They're leafy.
See what I did there?☺

These kinda made themselves right there on the bead tray.
I saw them laying there patiently waiting for eye pins.

And for the sweet summery focal, I wanted to "frame" it,
so I did a  wire weave bezel

I wanted the pendant to shine so I kept the rest
 of the necklace simple☺
Now you need to skidaddle over to my partner's blog
and see what she made with this☺
And, if I did it right, the list below shows all of the participants names
 and a link to each of their blogs.


I always "hop around" because I have a hard time getting
to every blog (in a timely manner) and I know if I start at the
top and work my way down I will always miss the "last" few on the list
and it just doesn't seem right to let them feel left out.☺

Lori Anderson, Hostess

  1. Pat, my jaw literally dropped when I saw what you did with the focal! It is absolutely stunning!! And I love the bracelet you used the toggle in--it is so perfect! I'm so humbled to have been paired with such a talented designer!

  2. Love the bracelets! Great job

  3. That focal is amazing!! I like it that you kept the chain so unfussy as it makes the focal stand out! It is my favourite from the pieces you made.

  4. Just love all the designs. That second bracelet really caught my eye.

  5. The focal with the wire wrapped bezel is fabulous!! OH WOW!! love all that you did!

  6. That bracelet is so sweet! Great job!

  7. That's what I always wanted to give a try too: wire weave a lampworkbead. Well done, Pat! It looks amazing!

  8. I love bracelets, yours too, of course!

  9. Great bracelets and that wire wrap around the cabochon - cool!

  10. Great designs. I totally agree about using pretty toggles on bracelets, where they can be seen and admired.

  11. Great collection of designs from your soup! Looks like you had a lot of fun!!

  12. Love what you did for the focal pendant, the framing of the bead! I love how you kept it simple to showcase it! Gorgeous designs!!!

  13. That wire bezel is beautiful,

  14. Beautiful work and the wire bezel is amazing!

  15. I really like what you have done, very nice bracelets!

  16. your "wigglebutt" dragon is adorable! Back to the BSBP - I love the wire work around the focal! Too much could have taken away from it, but your frame just made it shine!

  17. this is my first visit to your blog and I have to tell you I LOVE the name wigglebutt. and your wee dragon is gorgeous , can he come live with me??
    your wire bezel on that pendant is beautiful and i love that it is asymmetrical. I bet no matter how you look at it it appears different each time. so glad I stopped by.

  18. Your wire work amazes me! I haven't tried it yet as I focus mainly on seed bead weaving but I am starting to step out of my comfort zone and ready to give it a try. Beautiful work

  19. I like all of your designs but the bracelets are my favorite. You did a GREAT job with your soup!!!

  20. Ahhh, you had my fave colour combination, the turquoises and purples...I LOVE the bracelet with the dangly leafy bits :-) and the one with the rosette wraps (wonder if I'll ever get good enough for that?). Lovely work!

  21. Love these, Pat! I'm a bracelet nut, and I finally figured out it's because, unlike earrings and necklaces, when I wear my bracelets I can enjoy LOOKING at them (ooooh, shiny!)

  22. I just visited another blog that had a purple and green soup to work with and I commented that it was probably my all time favorite color combination. The shades were different, but there are so many variations of the theme. Your reveal is gorgeous as well. I love the beach glass and I really love love love the wire wrapped focal in that last necklace. It is gorgeous. Great job!

  23. Beautiful pieces, love the bracelet and color combination.

  24. I love your wirework, especially in th first creation!

  25. I love the wire weave bezel. Great job.

  26. Such beautiful jewelry you've made! I love how you made the roses from wire, really romantic look (when I was little purple and rose was my favorite combination also! Now it's purple and green and sometimes blue! :P). Love the dangling bracelet also, but the framed focal bead is amazing, i really adore how you played with wire color to enhance the beauty of the bead! Great work!

  27. Such beautiful pieces of jewelry you made! i love the roses made with wire (and you know something? My favorite color combo when I was little was also pink and purple! Now it's purple and green and sometimes some blue! :P ) I love both the dangling bracelet and earring, but mostly I love the framed pendant, I adore how you played with the wire's color to enhance the beauty of the bead! great work!

  28. Beautiful work! I think the first bracelet you made is my favorite just because I love those little wire rosettes. The clasp is adorable!

  29. The bracelet with blues and purples ia so great! I love the combination of opaline and opaque beads. The ceramic beads are a wonderful addition. That rocks!

  30. Love the wire work around your focal and the earrings too! Great job!

  31. Love the wire work you did for your bracelet! Good job with your soup !

  32. thought I was going to choose one of the bracelets for my fav but then I saw that wire weave for the focal and it became the one.

  33. I love what you did wrapping that focal. The whole necklace looks great. I agree, you were smart to keep the rest of it pretty simple. Nice bracelets and earrings too!

  34. You indeed made that focal shine. Nicely done! Oh, and I adore the rosettes you created on the sea glass. Cool touch!

  35. I like the rosettes and I like the second bracelet with the toggle as it is full of color, beads and dangles. Good for you followed the call of the earrings :) Beautiful wire woven focal on the necklace!
