I'd first like to thank Sue Hodgkinson from Hello Gorgeous for her friendship and generosity, this being the first Bead Soup Experience for the both of us ... and I'll say, I'm pretty stuffed from all those delicious beads ... and candy all the way from Wales!
And a round of applause for the bionic crafting woman that is Lori Anderson of Pretty Things! A lot of hard work went into organizing 210 people from around the world in an international blog party! Kudos to you, Lori, and I look forward to the next one in August!
|The ingredients: Bali silver heart toggle clasp, fancy jasper teardrop focal, pink rhodonite rounds, rainbow flourite polished nuggets, green amazonite faceted coins|
|The ingredients: lemon jade honey nuggets, polished flourite nuggets in burnt orange, white turquoise mosaic beads, dyed agate rings|
I could hardly contain myself, as soon as I received these babies in the mail, I opened up those Percy Pigs and got to work! Letting the beads themselves inspire me, I tore through my own stash of stuff and put together a few concoctions of my own from these beautiful ingredients. Here's what you've all been waiting for - let's start with the first 'soup'!
