It's that time -- time to say goodbye to a last helping of Bead Soup from Miss Molly's Designs. Today I'm showing you a bracelet and a necklace I made with the purple and green enameled beads she sent.
I knew these would be my favorites -- they're SO in my color palette.
First the necklace. I decided to make a very simple necklace from the get-go. The question this month was, what sort of beads would I decide to use as accents?
I left the pendant on my beading table (along with ten million friends) and hoped the right beads would roll along and snug up next to this pretty thing. Lo and behold, they did, in the form of a bead swap package I received at some point along the way. Green pearls. Awesome! I added purple Czech glass I bought at Bead & Button and here you go.
The last piece I made incorporated the large enameled beads in purple and green with tiny lampwork beads from yet another bead swap. I strung the enamel beads with five or six tiny daisy spacers in between each bead. Next, I made a bunch of dangles with little lampwork beads (these are truly tiny, only about 8mm in size). I added two dangles to a jump ring that's large enough to slide back and forth over the daisy spacers, and there you go -- charm bracelet without chain.
I hope you enjoyed this month's Cup of Bead Soup with Miss Molly's Designs! Stay tuned for next month's featured designer, and be sure to continue to visit Molly:
