The Reveal - Happy in Sofia!


If you like, you can scroll down to the end of this post and play the "Happy: We are from Sofia" video, based on Pharrell Williams's "Happy". 'Cause I am from Sofia, Bulgaria, I am happy to have taken the 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party® challenge and made it to the reveal, today, May 10, 2014. I blogged about my partner Silvia Sernicola and the soups we exchanged here and here. I think I didn't mention in my previous posts that we were supposed to take our partner out of his comfort zone. It turned out that both Silvia and I felt uncomfortable about the color blue. Silvia is a designer & beadweaver but has tried her hand at a number of other techniques. I'd never beaded before. I hope to have challenged her a bit :). I felt challenged (challenge = inspiration) and tried to make the best of it. Ta-dam!
Днес, 10.05.2014, е денят, в който всички участници в 8-мата размяна на мъниста трябва да публикуват творенията си. Разказах накратко за партньора си Силвия Серникола и "супите", които си разменихме, тук и тук. Можете да си пуснете клипчето "Happy: We are from Sofia" по Happy на Pharrell Williams, защото съм хем от София, хем съм щастлива, че съм на финала :). Май не съм споменавала, че идеята е да предизвикаш партньора си с материали или техники, които не е опитвал или не са му по сърце. Оказа се, че и двете със Силвия не предпочитаме синия цвят. Тя е дизайнер и се занимава основно с плетене с мъниста, но е опитвала и доста други техники. Аз никога не бях опитвала плетене с мъниста. Надявам се да съм я предизвикала поне малко :). Аз определено се почувствах предизвикана (предизвикателство = вдъхновение) и дадох много от себе си, за да се справя. И така:

1. Out of the Blue bracelet and earrings set / Комплект гривна и обици "Неочаквано синьо"

The bracelet was the first thing I made - it shows one of the beautiful beaded beads made by Silvia, some wired blue striped 10-mm agate beads, a Peruvian ceramic bird from TumiFairtradebeads (Etsy) and a ceramic donut  from NoName (Sofia, Bulgaria), one lava bead, wire and leather. The wire was soft and these tips came very handy. I also made a pair of earrings with two wired agate beads and the other two mismatched (Like!) beads of Silvia's. "Out of the blue" - because I made it unexpectedly, one day I decided not to worry about having no inspiration at all and take a break, then suddenly went to my working table and started making the wired beads and that was it! And because I feel challenged by the color blue.
Първо направих тази гривна с едно от невероятните мъниста на Силвия, 10-мм син ивичест ахат, увит с тел, керамично птиче, ръчно изработено в Перу, от TumiFairtradebeads (Etsy) и кръгло керамично мънисто от NoName (София), вулканичен камък; тел и кожа. Телта беше много мека и тези съвети ми бяха много полезни. Направих и обици с две оплетени мъниста син ивичест ахат и другите две мъниста на Силвия в същата гама с разменени шарки като позитив / негатив. Защо "Неочаквано синьо" ли? Много просто - един ден реших да не се притеснявам от липсата на вдъхновение и да си почина, но внезапно седнах и направих този комплект! А и синият цвят за мен е предизвикателство.

2. Kissed by the Sun necklace  / Колие "Слънчева целувка"





For the necklace, I used the metal focal piece and "sunny" beads from Silvia's soup - red acai, orange glass lentils and yellow sanded beads. I finished the necklace with two curtain ropes in red and yellow and a chain of bead links, all interchangeable, hence the two different clasps in front. I added a burgundy red lampwork bead link to one of them to balance this area. For the bead links I used ceramic, acai, lampwork, agate, yellow sanded and small cloisonne beads. I made the links symmetrical in terms of length but used different colors and shapes of beads as well as different bead caps. This and the colors were meant  to enhance the ethnic look I wanted to achieve.
За това колие използвах металната висулка от "супата" на Силвия и "слънчевите" мъниста - палмовите, стъклените и жълтите. Завърших с два шнура за пердета в жълто и червено и "синджир", сглобен от различни мъниста, всичките взаимозаменяеми, затова и сложих две закопчалки отпред. Към едната закопчалка добавих червено стъклено мънисто лампуърк за да балансирам дължината. За синджира използвах керамични, палмови и стъклени (лампуърк) мъниста плюс жълтите от Силвия и дребни емайлирани такива. Отделните брънки на синджира са с еднаква дължина, но с различни по цвят и форма мъниста, а също и различни капачета. Това, както и цветовете, подсилва етно излъчването, към което се стремях.

3. Bead weaving? Oh, no! / Оплитане с мъниста? "Не, не мога да правя такива неща!"



I'm not even sure it's fair to show this because it is not well done. Here is what I mean. Silvia sent me two focals. I suspect she wanted to challenge me a bit more with this one - a large round blue agate bead that called for bead weaving. I googled a couple of tutorials, made a couple of pitiful trials but, finally, found this and thought: "What the hack, let's try it!". I hope no experienced beader dies of laughter if I admit that I used white Nymo size D and a long needle with a single eye :). And the seed beads were more on the cheap side. So, four days and three thousand mistakes later I realized I grossly underestimated the situation. But I stubbornly persisted and finished it. If it wasn't for the postponement, I would've dumped this one. No close-ups, no pictures of the reverse side, it's all uneven, there are a couple of visible holes, I pulled it on the back side by crossing several beaded threads that somehow ended up loose (???) - but I couldn't resist the desire to see it in a finished design like this necklace with 12 mm faceted blue agate and aquamarine beads plus easy crystal beaded beads. I also made a pair of long chain earrings with blue crystals. One day I will have to remake this pendant.
Голямото кръгло мънисто от син ахат направо си търсеше оплетка. Подозирам, че Силвия ми го беше изпратила, за да ме предизвика да опитам нещо ново, което е и една от целите на събитието. Никога не бях правила такова нещо. Намерих няколко урочета в мрежата, последвани от аналогичен брой неуспешни опити, но накрая попаднах на това и реших, че ще ми свърши работа. Надявам се никой с опит в плетенето с мъниста да не умре от смях като си призная, че използвах нишка Nymo размер D и дълга игла за низане с голямо ухо. Е, и мънистата бяха от по-евтинките. Четири дни по-късно и след около три хиляди грешки разбрах, че фатално съм подценила ситуацията. Но се заинатих и го завърших. Ако не беше отложена датата на публикуване, щях да се откажа. Няма да показвам снимки в едър план или на обратната страна - тук-там има някоя и друга дупчица, оплетката е неравна, опитах се да я стегна от обратната страна с няколко пресечени нишки с мъниста, но накрая и те увиснаха и така и не разбрах защо. Някой ден трябва да го преправя. Обаче, не устоях на изкушението да го видя в готово колие. Комбинирах го с фасетирани мъниста ахат и аквамарин плюс такива, оплетени от по-дребни кристали, но по лесния начин. Направих и дълги висящи обици с ахат и мъниста от сини кристалчета.


4. A three-strand bead & button necklace and button earrings / Триредно колие с мъниста и копчета и обици с копчета



For this necklace, I only used the clasp from the bead soup, everything else came from my stash. I made three strands using TigerTail: (1) shades of yellow agate beads and carnelian chips with pewter rondelle spacers (2) watermelon quartz and red aventurine beads with pewter spacers and (3) seashell buttons with a beautiful cherry blossom print, linked with jump rings. Then I made some beaded links with the watermelon quartz beads and dispersed them among short lengths of chain to finish all three strands and attached them to the clasp. I made a pair of mismatched earrings with three buttons each, hanging from a burgundy red lampwork bead on one of them and a reddish agate bead. They could be worn with the ethnic necklace, too.
В това колие само закопчалката е от "супата" на Силвия, а тя е от елементите, които трябва да се използват задължително. Останалите материали са от моите запаси. Направих три наниза, като използвах нишка за низане TigerTail: един с мъниста ахат в жълти нюанси и чипс от карнеол с метални разделители цвят сребро, втори с мъниста от динен кварц и червен авантюрин с друг вид метални разделители и трети със седефени копчета, свързани помежду си с халки. После нанизах няколко мъниста динен кварц на игли с две ушета и ги разпръснах между синджири с различни дължини, които пък закачих към закопчалката. Направих и чифт обици с копчетата и, забележете, различни мъниста в основата - лампуърк и ахат.


5. Blue&Orange bracelet / Синьо-оранжевата гривна




I couldn't come up with a name for this bracelet. I have to admit that I fell in love with ceramic beads quite recently and have absolutely no stash of the required materials and findings but I wanted to make something with the ceramic beads from Silvia. That's why I used just one of them and two acai beads in this design.
Ми, не можах да й измисля име. Увлечението по керамичните мъниста ми е отскоро, та нямам кой-знае какви материали, а много исках да направя нещо с керамичните мъниста от Силвия. И т.к. не можах да измисля нищо по-така, скръндзаво използвах само едно от тях в тази гривна и две от палмовите мъниста.


Whew! I used Silvia's beads too sparingly so I have more inspiration ahead :). I am so anxious to check the other participants! The reveal list is here. Thank you, Lori, for challenging, guiding and reassuring us. And here is what my super partner Silvia did with the soup I sent her.
Уфф! Останаха ми неизползвани мъниста и ме очакват още моменти на вдъхновение :). Умирам от желание да видя какво са направили и останалите участници. Тук можете да видите техен списък. А тук - какво е сътворила Силвия с мънистата, които й изпратих.

  3. Bravo, you met the challenge and delivered several exceptionally beautiful pieces. I think for your first attempt at creating a beadwork bezel around a cabochon, you did a marvelous job. I can't begin to count how many times I've had to take apart a beaded bezel - they are NOT easy to do.
    The last bracelet reminds me of Earth and Sky - especially with that focal bead, it looks like mountains against a blue sky. Personally I'd call that bracelet "Heaven and Earth". :)

  67. I absolutely adore each of your pieces. Touched by the Sun and Out of the Blue are probably my favorites. Your work is gorgeous....this was my first time also and it really helped me to step out of my comfort zone also...See you next time.
