BEAD SOUP BLOG HOP-HOP-HOPPING AWAY!! and giveaway....

I’m not going to clog this post with a lot of chitter-chatter. I'm sure everyone is trying to get to as many blogs as they can. I hope you enjoy my pieces!! This is what I started with...


After some trial and error, here are my final pieces!!



This is a multi-use piece.The bead embroidery piece can be hung as a wallhanging. The necklace can be worn alone or when a show piece is wanted, the necklace can be attached to the bead enbroidery and worn. This places the star fish at the back of your neck for an interesting look. My piece also includes a matching necklace.











Don't forget to go checkout my partner Deci's piece at Gem Trails.

As a thank you for stopping by I am going to give away this pendant to someone who comments on this post. I will draw a name from the comments on Monday evening. Thanks for stopping by and scrolling down to make a comment.

I love the the colors you pulled into the under sea theme. I'm a beadweaver also and I admire the seahorses and starfish you made. Bravo!

Deci said...

Yes! Wonderful! I love the bead embroidery, it's just like home. Great, Margee! Oh yes, enter me for the cab.

Cathryn said...

Now THAT'S talent---I love the bead embroidery! Very creative! I can see this wonderful work of art in some swanky little boutique that sells only exquisite one of a kind art work. The cab is gorgeous too!

Emakaye said...

Fantastic multi use piece you have created. The under the sea pendant is just gorgeous. And how kind of you to offer a giveaway too.

Good HEAVENS that's a lot of work! I'm impressed. I can't imagine how in the world seed beading is done -- I've tried square stitch once and that's IT.

It's very creative how you made this multi-use, and it's just so interesting to look at. I keep finding new things!

Well done!
