Bead Soup Blog Party 7 : Reveal #2

This is the seventh "Bead Soup Blog Party" however my first to participate in.  Lori Anderson is the superstar behind the reveals - there are three in this series of blog parties consisting of over 541 participants in total. 

My bead soup partner is Tania Hagan from Pelima Designs.  She sent me an absolute divine focal and some gorgeous seed beads. I have been wanting to try a new design on the loom for ages so this was an opportunity to show case this gorgeous lampwork focal.

Thank you Loir and Tania ~ this has been so much fun!

  15. That bead is beautiful. I really like your bead weaving and the clasp is a focal point all of its own. Great job and hope to see more of your work.

  20. I did not know that you could do loom work like that where it is all one and then splits into several strands. The clasp is so pretty with the focal as well

  21. What an absolutely incredible creation!! Beautiful!

  22. You've made a beautiful bracelet. The idea of making a band with separate threads in the loom is interesting and new to me. Great work. (Please remove the Captcha functionality just for a few days)

  27. very nice pattern in this one! and how DO you get the crimp to stay on the beads without breaking them?! I always seem to snap them in the process!

  28. Very pretty bracelet, and nice way to feature the focal. I haven't seen much use of lampwork focals in a loomed piece, so this was very creative.
