Cup of Bead Soup - Reveal

It is finally reveal day for the Cup of Bead Soup Vintage Lucite Beads. It was organized by the bead soup guru, Lori Anderson,with beads provided by Crystal of Bead Happily Ever After. I was one of the 4 beaders selected.
Here are the beads as they arrived
Original ideas that I layed out
Final design with removable pendant
With pendant removed
Necklace only
I added some metallic beads, Swarovski crystals, jump rings and large lobsters claws.

It was interesting to work with a colour palette that is not my norm, especially the use of gold accents.

Take some time to check out the amazing work of the other beaders. 
Big thanks to Lori and Crystal!!!

Happy Beading!!
