~~~~~~~7th BEAD SOUP BLOG PARTY....The First Reveal!!!


So today is the day that we all reveal what we made with the awesome bead soups we received from our partners. I want to take a few minutes to thank Lori Anderson for all of hard work she put into these Blog Parties. She is a true inspiration and so deserves more than just a piece of pie.....BIG HUGS LORI.....You are so AWESOME!!! 

My partner is the AMAZING Lori Schneider and she sent me some beautiful lampwork beads, one of which was an amber and silver hollow focal bead, crystal studded black beads, many Czech crystal beads and gold tone findings. I usually don not work with a lot of gold or gold tone metals so this was a great change for me. 

I love to make mixed media jewelry so I thought mixing silks, chain, dangles and a bit of macrame would make it really fun.....and lot of fun I had. Thank you Lori for sending such awesome beads and goodies..

So here they are..........I hope you all like them
