Our third reveal, as you can see, has been postponed a bit due to some real life issues for Lori Anderson. But the big day has finally arrived! Without further ado, here is a reminder first about what I sent my partner Leah Tees
And what she sent me:
(We were apparently on the same wave length about the purple LOL)
And here is what I have concocted from Leah's beautiful soup:

And the earrings:
This set I will wear a LOT, as my wardrobe tends to consist of shades of black, especially when I'm travelling...which I do quite a lot. It's just so easy.
At the same time, I was working away on this bracelet:
I've recently fallen in love with freeform peyote, thanks to Karen Williams of Skunk Hill Studio and Mandi Ainsworth of Bead Circle. I had such fun with this piece! I added a flash of teal to Leah's black, silver, and purple colour scheme and just went cray-cray. I've added some of my own seed beads, but the majority of the piece is the soup that Leah sent.
I also made earrings to go with the bracelet:
Here they are together:
Please be sure to visit my friend Leah's post HERE....(I can't WAIT to see what she's created!) and also see what the other participants have come up with from their soups. Please visit Lori's blog at Pretty Things for the link list of participants for this reveal.
Thanks Leah, for a particularly inspiring soup! I have many in-progress photos for the freeform bracelet, which I will post separately after the mayhem is over. :-)
