SOUPS ON!

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"

SOUPS ON!

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.
