Welcome to the Bead Soup Blog Party!


Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!

What is a Bead Soup Blog Party?


Each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending the following:


~ A focal
~ A special clasp (not just a lobster claw)
~ Some coordinating spacers or beads


Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest, and choose to use the coordinating beads or not.


Here's what I made!

  4. I really enjoyed both pieces--but I know what you mean when something doesn't work out well. Or it's not what you had in mind! You did an incredible, delightful job on both pieces so I'm hard pressed to say which one I enjoyed the most!

  8. I like both of them, but I think you have a hit with the second one. And, since I'm a beadweaver, you could officially call me a newbie with bead stringing! I love seeing all the different ideas and designs thru this blog hop. You are definitely headed in the right direction with your designs. Great job!

  9. I think they are both beautiful and you could have left the 1st one alone and it would be gorgeous! I wish I could see a larger photo of the 2nd one. It looks pretty from what I can tell.
