Bead Soups Everywhere!

I am so excited for this year's Bead Soup Blog Party!  Lori Anderson paired me with an extraordinarily talented lady from Florida named Carol Wilson!  Her jewelry is gorgeous!!

Life has been insane busy lately with my little guy, Spring Break, and a few other things that we haven't anticipated, but I wanted to give you all a sneak peek of the beautiful soup that Carol sent to me and the one that I sent to her.

Look at all the lovelies!!  Gold isn't a metal hue that I use a lot in my jewelry, but I am always open to new and exciting avenues.  I just love the glass pendant focal and the hand-made clasp.  Just gorgeous!  The color palette is delicious!! I can't get over the richness of the colors!  Carol sent me the most beautiful seed pearls in rose and peacock.  I am a pearl FREAK!  I love them! She also sent some gorgeous little pale rose pearl coins.  Beautiful amethyst and gorgeous Czech glass crystals, also two coordinating samples of size 6 seed beads.  I cannot wait to get to work!!!


Here is the bead soup that I sent to Carol.  My friends, Laura and Rachel, at Bead Bayou (beadbayou.net) helped me compile it.  Three heads are always better than one!  We included a gorgeous copper compass focal created by local jewelry artist, Glenn Levent!   His work is absolutely stunning!!  I also sent copper findings, a copper clasp, Swarovski crystals, green opal beads, gorgeous opal cup chain, large hole pearls, stringing materials, and so much I really have forgotten it all. I hope that Carol gets to have a lot of fun with the soup that I've sent her.
