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. 😉

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! ~
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. ~
