Bead Soup Blog Part - Reveal 2

My Bead Soup from Ann Rishell of My Critical Eye.        

Earrings, I LOVE these shell beads she sent. I strung them on an extra large copper jump ring and then connected them together to make reeeeaaaaallly long statement earrings! I think they are about 6" long!



And  a necklace. I utilized more of the shell and copper pieces as well as this beautiful ceramic focal and yellow stone bead.
