The Bead Soup Blog Party 7
I tried my hand at The Bead Soup Blog Party through Facebook this year. The way it worked (and I'm still not totally sure of it) was I joined, got a partner who sent me beautiful beads, I sent her some also beautiful beads and the challenge was to see what we could make of it. Rules: I had to use the focal bead and the clasp in what I made and I could add my own beads to the piece or pieces. We had a certain amount of time and today was the reveal date for our group! I pondered and thought and came up with two totally different pieces. One is chained and wire wrapped and the other is micro Macrame! The first picture will show a good selection of the beads that she sent me. The other pics show different angles of what I made. My partner is Dana Fowler. She has been pretty under the weather since we swapped and I send her all my love and good wishes for a speedy recovery. The Bead Soup Blog Party is run by a generous and very well organized lady, Lori Anderson. Much thanks to her! I'll learn a little more each time I do this.
