Bead Soup Blog Party ; 3rd Reveal

Finally my turn has come :) 
To refresh your memory, Lori had partnered me with Tanya Boden of Fusion Muse.
This is the soup I received from her.. [I especially love the round ceramic pendant & the toggle clasp which she made by herself ;)].

And here are the result of my cooking ;)

1. A short necklace using the orange resin beads, the silver spacers, the purple husk beads, and the double faced glass bead focal. I used some of my wooden beads with similar colors for the rope.

2. A pair of earrings to match the short necklace using the orange resin beads, the orange stones [I don't know what the stones' name, are they howlite?], with some purple wooden beads from my stash.

3. A long necklace using the round ceramic pendant & the brass toggle clasp. I added some glass beads & a dragonfly charm from my stash.

4. The last piece I made. At first I was quite confused of what to do with the colorful tiny glass beads. And I decided not to use them when suddenly the idea hit me.
Here it is, a simple bracelet :)

And that's a wrap. 

Thank you very much especially to my friend & lovely supplier, Mba Lili Krist of Manik Jawa, for letting me know about this event. And of course to  Lori Anderson, the host of this superb blog hop party. You guys rawk! ;)

Now hop to the other participants, and enjoy the beautiful pieces they made.
