Bead Soup is Ready!



This is my first Bead Soup Blog Party and I'm so glad that I signed up to participate!  I have enjoyed meeting new people, reading everyone's blogs and seeing the wonderful beads that have been exchanged over the last month.  Thank you Lori Anderson for working so hard to make this blog hop fun and successful! 

My BSBP partner, Laura Sanger, sent me some beautiful beads in colors that are perfect for fall, which is fast approaching.  Be sure to visit Laura's blog to see what she created with the beads that I sent her.

Laura sent me so many beads that I was able to make several pieces and still have beads left over!

I used the carved bone focal and the floral clasp in this necklace.  The necklace also includes some large faux Amber beads, copper spacers and beautiful red fire-opal crystals beads, that Laura sent.


I made two pair of earrings, one pair with some Czech glass stars and multicolor crystal bicones.


The other pair are made with these lovely carved bone tube beads and crystal rondelle beads.


I used a mix of Goldstone rounds, tiger eye rounds, Carnelian chips and the seed beads and wire wrapped them over a wooden bangle that was wrapped in orange and red plaid silk ribbon.

These are the partner pairs.

  8. I am SO sorry for being late — today our internet provider decided to crash. My stress level is through the roof, to say the least! They’re still working on it, but it’s like dial-up.

    Oh but WOW I love that little face nestled in the star! You did such a good job with that piece. And everything else is wonderful as well. The bone beads are cool.

    I hope you’ll participate again!

    Love, Lori
