Ambra and the BSBP

I'm loving the juicy greens Ambra used in this necklace!
This is my first BSBP, and I’m thrilled to be part of the fun. My partner, Ambra Gostoli, is an accomplished and creative jewelry designer. I love her fresh take on wirework, her inventive style, and the delightful way in which she plays with color. (Ambra took all the photos in this post.)

Ambra's creative wirework paired with sunshiney colors make this a playful summer bracelet.
You can see more of Ambra's work at her DaWanda shop, Chic and Frog.

"Jaw dropping and drooling on my keyboard" is how I describe this pair of red-hot earrings by Ambra.

What in the world is a BSBP???

The BSBP is the Bead Soup Blog Party, the brainchild of Lori Anderson. Lori dreamed up the BSBP as a way for jewelry artists to connect with each other and make new friends, while providing each of us with a fresh opportunity to stretch our creative wings. Once signups are complete, Lori pairs up participants and the pairs swap Bead Soup (main ingredients are a focal bead, a nice clasp, and coordinating spacer beads).

Once each participant receives her or his portion of Bead Soup, the creating begins. Each participant posts to her or his blog pictures of Bead Soup, progress, and finished Bead Soup projects, and on September 17, 2011, a virtual party takes place, with everyone visiting and commenting on each others’ blogs.
