I’m taking in part in Lori Anderson’s Bead Soup Blog Party! What is a bead soup blog party? Well, you can click that link to find out more of the details, but basically… a whole LOT of people sign up, get a partner, send each other beads that are out of their partners usual style and then you create something using the beads you receive.
It is challenging because it forces you to use materials you wouldn’t normally work with or be drawn to and it’s a lot of fun!
She makes beautiful, feminine, colourful jewellery and sent me some of the most beautiful handmade lampwork beads, along with some gorgeous glass, some Swarovski and a cute little Sterling heart toggle!
Now I just have to make something with them. Using all of them or some of them, but I must incorporate the focal (not a problem!) and the clasp. I have a while to get it together and I don’t want to rush it.
I can’t wait to play with them, though. Don’t they look good enough to eat?! Like, candy?
I hope she enjoys what I sent her, too.
I’ll be posting the completed piece here on the day of the party, which is Saturday, February 26th.
Thank you, Virginie!!
