Bead Soup Reveal and giveaway

 Yay today is the big Bead Soup Blog reveal, and to celabrate my upcoming bundle of joy I have decided to give away three of the items I have made, so for a chance to win one of the following, just leave a comment!

A massive thanks to my bead partner Cris for sending me such lovely things and to the Lovely Lori for all the hard work she puts into making the Bead Soup happen. So straight to the point here is what I made......

 With the lampwork beads and one of the shells Cris sent I made up a copper bracelet

The clasp, focal and a fair few of the beads went into this piece....

Along with some copper barrel chain mail and a few swarovski crystals

And here is the girl modeling it....

 I used the copper head pins, shells and some of the ribbon on these earrings....

And at the last minuite (hence the bad photo) I used up the lovely piece of coral, beautiful colored ribbon and one of my new Moogin beads on this little cutie.....

Which I think I will have to keep to wear with my fave summer dress (if ever I fit into it again)
I hope you liked what I made, I'm soon off to either watch the Olympic cycling or give birth (which ever comes soonest) Have a great day!

To see what the others came up with.....
