Bead Soup Reveal

My partner for the 6th Bead Soup Blog Party was Linda of Must-Haves Jewelry. 
The pieces she created from my bead soup ingredients are amazing. 

Here's the soup she sent me. 

I used the special closure and blue rounds Linda sent with 
reclaimed wood, rose quartz and green stone beads.

I used the blue coral beads with a wooden bird pendant,
 its matching beads, and a clay leaf .

The blue pearls Linda sent looked great with these yellow beads 
I had just picked up.

Finally, I used two of the lampwork beads with reclaimed metal tags.
I kept the earrings pretty simple to accentuate the beads themselves. 

Here's the other participants for the first reveal.
