Bead Soup Blast Off!

It's blast off time for the first of the three rounds of Bead Soup.
It's me, Marcy Lamberson, glass artist and teacher (StudioMarcy) and I am excited to show you my necklace made from gorgeous components by Perri Jackson.  See that beautiful focal and clasp?  She made that by intricate wire wrapping.  I was amazed.  I used some of her bead soup pieces to make up more of the necklace.  Accenting Perri's gorgeous crystal in the focal was important, so I included additional sparkly beads. Some of my own lampwork along with a bit more silver ties in the focal and clasp.

 Thanks to Lori for creating and organizing this humongous project.  And below are the rest of the merry jewelry makers for this Bead Soup Party Hop.
