6th Bead Soup 2nd Reveal

This is it!  Our day has come.  I listed the other participants of the second reveal on the entry below this one for your blog hopping pleasure.

I threaded the accent beads onto 24g steel wire and twisted them on to a strip of braided silk.  I used the glass heart focal, silver colored hook and the accent beads received from my partner, Iveth Caruso.

  28. What a great way to use that silk. I wish I had seen this before my reveal as it would have been a great way to use some of the silk that was in my own piece. :) The colors and everything go together nicely. Beautifully done.
