bead soup 2014

Bead Soup Blog Party ~ The brain child of Lori Anderson of Pretty Things. A bunch of creative types (with a blog) sign-up, get paired-up and send each other a bead soup.

Bead Soup ~ Has to include one focal and one clasp along with some coordinating beads.  (You can send more if you want but this is the bare minimum.) The soup should be something you would send your best friend ~ in other words ~ no cast-offs.

What happens next ~ You create something with what you were sent, and it doesn’t have to be jewelry. Rules state you have to use the focal and clasp but you don’t have to use them in the same piece.

Finally ~ The reveal date: May 3rd, 2014. You post a blog with a picture of your creation, and go blog-hopping to see what everyone else has created.

Why? ~ Because it’s FUN!!! to stretch your creativity and challenge yourself in new and creative ways. You get to meet new people and it’s also good advertising. 😉

For more detailed information please visit Lori’s BSBP info page.

My partner ~ Nicole DeMore from Beading for Healing. She is currently living on the west coast in Oregon, (One of my favorite states!!!) She mainly works with seed beads so the soup I sent her might be a bit of a challenge. Go on over and check out her blog! She’s posted some great tutorials!

Now for the wonderful soupy goodness that Nicole sent me. I love all of the sea glass, and beads, it will be fun to make something out of these! ~

Bead Soup 2014 for me

And here is what I sent her. The luna moth pendant is one of two that I made and that’s the only reason I was able to part with it. ~

  1. I’m excited to see what you’ll make of the soup I sent!! Also am really glad that you received it without any major mishaps or anything (would be just my luck too).

  2. Love both of the soups. What a challenge this would be for me because I never know where to start. I also am slow to commit since once the beautiful material is used it has seemingly lost its potential. Michelle, you will have so much fun!
