Drum Roll Please…..

Ta Daaaa! Here it is, my Sharon Palac necklace! I had so much fun making this necklace. The glass accent beads were custom made just for this piece. I have already worn it to work and all the ladies (and even some of the guys) were drooling over it. Hope you Enjoy!

This Bead Soup project has been so inspiring, insightful, profitable and downright fun! I hope we do another one real soon. Here is the list of extraordinary designers that participated. Please visit as many blogs as you can!

  1. Whitney, it is stunning! I love how you took the iridescent colors of Sharons focal and incorporated them into your beads, a stunning partnership! I can see why all were drooling!

  2. A partnership made in heaven! I can’t imagine a better turn out with a collaboration like yours. Wonderful!!!

  3. Hey Whitney, you really did a fabulous job with all the beads! I love how your lampwork beads accentuate the colors in the tree focal- love it! Come take a look at what I did with your beads!

  4. What a great design!!! Sharon’s focal is fantastic but you really treated it right with those awesome bits of glass!!!!

  5. I really love the warm and earthy color palette here! Very elegant!
    Thanks for sharing this heaping serving of great soup! Be sure to stop by and taste some of mine. Enjoy the day! Erin

  6. Whitney, I love everything about this necklace!! The colors, the stunning accent beads the design everything!! Truly a piece of art, the compliments you received do not surprise me it’s wonderful!!

  7. I loved this necklace at first glance, but I loved it even more when I saw what was in your party pack and how you combined it with items from your own stash. Very creative and colorful!

  8. Whitney, your necklace has something mystic. I think your accent beads match this pendant perfectly. I wish I would have the skills, equipment and capability to make my own lampwork beads. Wonderful.

  9. Wow! seeing your necklace and reading your blog reminds me of the tropical flowering tree known as the ‘Flame of the Forest’ or the ‘Flamboyant Tree’, just like the focal bead, and the other beads you have used. Gorgeous!
