What kind of soup do I enjoy in even the hottest weather?
Why, bead soup, of course! This summer I'm participating in my second Bead Soup Blog Party, hosted by Lori Anderson.
My partner, the very talented Mary Ellen Parker, sent me a beautiful soup mix. The beads on the spoon are faceted agate. There are also some lovely silver oval beads, some fantastic fiber beads, some ribbon, and a beautiful handmade leaf toggle clasp.
I've named him Norbert, and I can't wait to make him a necklace to nest in. I've already picked out the seed beads I'm going to use, and now it's a matter of making something that does him justice.
(And that he'll feel at home in, of course!)
I didn't take photos of the soup I sent to M.E., but I can tell you that there were sparkly beads, assorted sequins, a handmade copper wire pendant, and a matching clasp. Keep an eye on her blog! Maybe she'll post some pictures. And if not, our reveal date is on August 11th.
Thanks for checking out my soup, and have a sequintastic day!
Also, a special announcement: tomorrow I'm doing the Nicole's Beadbacking giveaway that I mentioned in this post. So watch this space, and tell your beady friends.
