The Seventh Beacd Soup Exchange

I am so excited to be participating in another of Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Exchange.  This is the seventh, and I have participated in six of them.

A Bead Soup Exchange, for those of you that don't know, is a group of artists or crafters getting together and exchanging beads, and then creating something beautiful with these beads.  Lori sends the invitation and usually has over 500 people all over the world who will respond. She then gets busy matching all these people so that everyone has a partner.  A very exhausting job.

This year I was lucky enough to be matched with my partner, Dyanne Cantrell, who lives in Arkansas.  Check out her blog at www.deelitefuljewelrycreations.blogspot.com

Here is what Dyanne sent me to work with and the cute box it came in.

The clasp is handmade polymer clay by Tori Sophia.  The focal and green, red and white beads are lampwork made by Dyanne.  Aren't they beautiful?  The soup mix includes little green beads by Ion Beads and some clear spacers and gold spacers.  I have a yummy recipe in mind for this soup.
