Bead Soup Blog Party and My Latest Creation

I took the plunge today and signed up for the Bead Soup Blog Party. You get to pair up with another jewelry designer and trade beads and create a piece of jewelry. You can add your own stuff too. I hope I can keep up with this fascinating group of people. I'll be sharing the beads I'm sent with you. I'll also show you the beads I send to my partner. Then I'll show you the two finished products in the big reveal.

I finally decided to create a necklace for myself. It's all sterling, diamonds, rosaries and shell.  The small pendant on the first chain is made with small diamonds. My husband, Tony, bought it for me. the second chain is actually part of a rosary that was my fathers. the large broach on the third necklace is an antique broach that I've had in my collection for many years. The spoon dog pin on the right side reminds me of the dogs I've owned and loved through the years. I found the large flower pin on the bottom while vacationing with a dear friend. What do you think?

Here are some details of the necklace.  I found this pendant below on a vacation with a dear friend.
