7th Annual Bead Soup Blog Hop - 2nd Reveal
Once a year Lori Anderson hosts an international blogging and jewelry making event she calls the Bead Soup Blog Party! Go to her site for a complete list of the 2nd group.
This year Lori paired up over 500 people, WOW! Partners exchange beads, which we call BEAD SOUP. From our soup mix we must use the focal bead and the clasp, the rest is optional.
My partner Kelli Jacobson is from Texas. OMG she sent me the most awesome package of beads. Kelli has good taste and a generous heart. Thank you Kelli! Kelli is an awesome jewelry maker, a caring wife and great mom. She is one busy lady who manages to make time for her creative business; Creative Moon Jewelry & Things while juggling the demands of life. Do stop by her shop to see what she made from the bead mix I sent her!
I encourage you to also check out the Pinterest board that we’ve all added to during the bead soup reveals (there’s one more reveal next week). You will find beautiful and interesting beaded items. Some ready for purchase. And remember while you are hopping around the blogs please leave a message.
