Bead Soup Blog Party # 8

Meet Flora Dora, off on yet another shopping expedition.  With hair quaffed and shoes polished, she's wearing a new hat and dress and sports the latest style in classy handbags.  Her hands and legs are moveable and she thinks she looks pretty hot.  I'm going to hate to tell her she's just a brooch :)

I loved the 'Iris' coloring on the 10mm black beads Tania including in my parcel.  They were my inspiration for the rest of the components I used in this pendant and beaded 'chain'.  Porcelain flowers and lots of Czech beads.  Wish I could capture of the AB finishes better for you, mostly Jet AB and Vitrail.

So both fun pieces to make and wear, thank you so much Lori and Tania for the opportunity

These are the beads I sent to Tania and the pieces she made with them

And it's that time of year again where the blog is dragged out again, (huffing and puffing) from the back cupboard under the stairs.  I have no idea why it hides in such an inaccessible place most of the  year, it's really very friendly once I dust the cobwebs off and talk to it a little.

And off course it's that time of the year again when Lori Anderson is hosting her annual Bead Soup Blog Party - this year it's the 8th to be run and my 2nd participating.  Last year I partnered Adlinah from Singapore, this year it's much closer to home with Tania Hagen from Pelima Designs in Gisborne, New Zealand.

Here is the soup I received from Tania :)

Looking forward to designing with these.  
Now how did Tania know my two favourite colours are red and black?
