Bead Soup Reveal

It's Reveal Day!  I received a very pretty bead soup from my partner Roxanne Blanc at 

She sent two focals and I chose to use the round pendant with attached bail.  It matched the chain she sent perfectly.  I added several of the large turquoise colored jasper beads, two of the round filigree beads and some hematite beads from my collection.

I also made a bracelet using the lampwork glass beads Roxanne provided.  I wire wrapped them and added a second strand of mixed glass beads, and a coordinating ribbon.  The magnetic clasp makes putting this bracelet on a breeze.  I also added some green leaf dangles which are hard to see in this picture.

I also made some colorful earrings using the fancy rivoli beads as the dangles on these earrings.  I love the colors together.

I had fun designing these items with the beads from  Roxanne.  Thanks Lori Anderson for once again putting together this Bead Soup Blog Hop Challenge!  Head on over to Roxanne's blog to see what she made with the beads I sent her at
