First, Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Father's out there!  Hope some of you are brave enough to read these Bead Soup posts.

"Lori Anderson Bead Soup Exchange"


Come on in, sit down and enjoy some delicious Bead Soup with me. This is the second "Lori Anderson Bead Soup Exchange" and I am exchange partners with Katie Nelson.  These are the beads that I sent her, and I am anxiously awaiting to see her Designs.

This is the soup that I am serving up today.  I received these beads from Katie Nelson along with some extras 

AND, TA DA,  this is what I came up with. The clasp is a beautiful magnetic leaf, and to the ceramic pendant, I added some amazonite, grey pearls and some silver spacers. The five sided blue beads were from the extra stash she sent me.  See that group in an earlier post. Thanks, Katie for sharing your fun beads.

All participants will be posting their designs over a one week period.  I will add their websites and blogs as they are posted, and you can also enjoy seeing the designs on our Flickr Group.  Just click this link.

Yesterday's reveal Group are listed here.  Enjoy reviewing all the beautiful designs they have posted on their blogs.

Trish's Enamel Necklace

Every once in awhile I get a request to repair or redesign someone's necklace.  This request was to redesign a necklace using the enamel pieces.  I picked up the colors in the enamel and added amazonite, tiger eye and opal Swarovski crystals.  Here is my design.  Click on the picture to see more detail.
