Bead soup reveal!!!



had so much fun with my bead soup from Jodie Marshal http://www.marshalljodie.blogspot.com/

I was SO excited with the elephant clasp and the colors of the soup.

 I added some silver work to the focal and I wanted the necklace to be simple and elegant. I must've put it together what seems like a million times!   I'm working on a bracelet with some of the other soup :D

Here's the necklace

The amazing tin clasp that inspired my elephant addition to the focal. 


Here is the focal. It's an amazing large disc bead made by my partner Jodie! I made a silver elephant disc with tubing and another disc on the back with loops and riveted them together!  I love how it looks!



This is what I sent Jodie


Can't wait to see what she comes up with :)
