this is my first bead soup blog party. i really am not a jewelry maker, i make earthy jewelry with my ceramics but I have never taken a jewelry class.
so you ask what is a Bead Soup Blog Party?
well you are hand matched with another person to swap out beads, which Lori Anderson at lorianderson-beadsoupblogparty.blogspot.com did, there is approximately 363 entrants! Can you believe each one was hand matched?
in this particular one we where instructed to send a clasp and a focal bead. you can send more accent beads if you wish but not required to. once you get your beads you have about a month to create! step out of your comfort zone and do something different. well for me that won't be too hard as like i said, i am not a jewelry artist.
then it's all about blogging about your experience and creations!
this is my soup that i received from my partner Rebecca Sirevaag. so many beautiful pieces here it's hopefully going to go easy for me! she sent so many pieces my head is spinning.
|here is my hand stamped focal pendent Rebecca sent. i love leaves so this is just perfect for me!|
|and finally here is my clasp that I have to use. hummm how can I make it different?|
stay in touch and keep checking back to see what we have created with our soup of beads, it should be a lot of fun to watch what is created.
