Bead soup party!

Sorry I am a day late with my reveal :)) To be late is not in my habits, I just blame my day job for being very busy lately :))) My swap partner, lovely Kella, who made an outstanding necklace out of my beads, have sent me gorgeous beads in sky blue colours, a fantastic dragonfly and a lovely blue pendant with a lot of possibilities :)

Although dragonfly was made into a clasp, I have decided to make it a central piece in a necklace. And also to place it into its "natural habitat" :))), i.e. to give it some flowers. The pendant had very convenient holes in it, through which I managed to attach my handmade polymer clay flowers, and make a sort of a basket with flowers :)) And here is my result:





Taking part in bead soup party was a great fun for me, I hope we'll do it again some time! :)))
