Bead Soup Blog Party!

I am participating in The Bead Soup Blog Party hosted by Lori Anderson of Pretty Things. (yay!) My partner is Dot Dewallen of Speedie Beadie

Details on what I'm talking about later. Here are the SOUPS!

The beads and cabochons are awesome! I'm especially stoked about the raku focal made by Duane Collins and the orange striped seed beads.

I sent some of the polymer cabs I made! Along with a funky mix of seed beads. I couldn't decide on what to do for a clasp so I sent a few options, including a snap.

So, what am I talking about? I have been paired seemingly at random with another blogger of the jewelry making variety. We have exchanged bead soups. And then on a certain date, (March 30th for us) we will reveal our grand creations on our blogs. 

Oh wait! The coolest part I forgot to mention, five hundred other beady-bloggers are in on the action! Um, awesome!


  1. Awesome soups!!! Can't wait till March!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I can't wait for the big reveal either!

  3. Can't wait to see what you create with your soup.
