It's here; it's BEAD SOUP showtime. This is going to be one GIGANTIC PARTY
Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to lately.
Lori Anderson, our fearless leader (there are over 500 of us) assigned us partners in March; we then sent our bead soup mixes to each other and once received, we then spent the interim weeks planning, designing, creating and assembling.
The requirement was to use the focal bead, the clasp , and as many beads as we desired; adding if necessary supplies and beads from our stash (and we all have one), to create a piece of jewellery or art or whatever took our fancy. (or wherever our muse led us).
If this is your first time to my blog , WELCOME!
To save you from having to search through past posts here is a photo of what my partner
Heather d'Entremont sent me and then photos of the finished piece.
|Lots of polymer clay goodies; lava rock beads in three sizes; some crystals; two clasps; one large focal polymer clay pendant; some seashell strands; and a pair of pretty pink and copper earrings as a wee gift.|
Here is what I made with just some of what she sent me.
(to use it all would make for a very heavy and busy necklace.)

This is a short choker length necklace as I didn't want the pendant to be able to swing too freely and risk damaging it when it's being worn.
I'd love to hear what you think of the final outcome. It's quite a departure for me as Heather is a whiz at making millifiori polymer clay. (and I'm not).
I'd love it if you'd also pop over to Heathers blog to see what she made with the soup I sent her.
Here is a link to the other participants blogs.
Enjoy the tour, there are over 500 of us so I'm sure you won't be able to visit them, all especially in one day. The link post has a list of all the participants so you can choose who to visit and when.
