Soups On!


Welcome to the first reveal for the Lori Anderson 7th Bead Soup Exchange.  I have participated in 6 of the 7 exchanges, and have enjoyed seeing the beautiful work that all these Artists create.  I know you will too.

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 she sent me.



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.  And this is what I created.





The bracelet is a "Ladder Wrap Bracelet" that wraps twice around the wrist,  and is made using Greek leather.  I stitched the green beads from Ion Beads on the leather and then added the beautiful polymer clay clasp from Tori Sophia's collection.  I get many compliments on this piece.



In this creation I used the lampwork beads created by Dyanne, which includes the green focal and the red,green and white beads.  I added some 14K gold curved tube beads, and some faux ivory beads to complete.  It is approximately 18" and I show it with a longer 14K gold chain that compliments the necklace.

I hope you enjoyed your soup, and you can continue your "culinary" tour by clicking this link to see all the other soup.  Thanks for stopping by.

I think that what you said was very logical. However, think about this,
what if you composed a catchier title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a post title to possibly grab a person's attention?
I mean Untitled is a little vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they create news headlines to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers excited about everything've written.
In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.

Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if
blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems
of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate it.
