Bead Soup Party Blog! My earlier posts explained what the party is about and who my partner is in this wonderful, exciting adventure into bead design. Again my partner is: Evie and Beth McCord. Please check out their blog. You will get such a treat! Their imagination along with their beautiful lampwork beads and enameled pieces give such a unique twist to their Soup pieces. What a thrill!my website. Catherine King (who revealed at Mid-night!) and Deborah Apodaca. Well I made it before mid-night! My daughter's wi-fi is back up and running!

Evie and Beth McCord! Aren't they so lovely! I haven't started working on my main piece but I've done a side piece and next week is reveal day! I'd better get off the computer and get working!

Have a blessed Easter, everyone!

I signed up for the 10 week cabochon cutting class at Saint Lucie Rock and Gem Club. They have all the cabbing machines that you could want and at the end of the 10 weeks I had about 10 finished cabochons and a wealth of knowledge. My friends, Catherine, Deborah and Sarah also took the class and thanks to our teacher Hannah we were really very productive! I haven't incorporated any of the cabs into jewelry, yet, but I' satisfied to just sit and look at them for now, so pretty!
I signed up to teach a 10 week beginner's course at Saint Lucie County Rock and Gem Club in Fort Pierce, FL! The first (Byzantine) week went off pretty nicely although it kind of surprised me having 8 students signed up! Luckily I made enough kits to go around and two of the students, having had previous chainmaille experience, opted to skip the Byzantine weave and go right for this coming week's project Open Roundmaille!

Many people have been admiring my micro macrame bracelet so I thought it only fair that I post the designer and where you can buy her pattern. Donna Littlewood is the designer and you can purchase the pattern "Waves" on her Etsy site Knot Gypsy Designs. Fun and easy and she has some free basic tuts! I made some adjustments to make it my own and to accommodate my soup beads!
