Bead Soup Blog Party Begins

I have my hostess gift (for Lori at Pretty Things) and I have my wonderful bead soup from Cassi at Beads Rolling Downhill blog.  Now I just need to get my party hat, a drink and join in!

I am quite happy that this is a virtual party on the interweb as I am not a party person at all, I would be the one standing at the door smiling inanely all night until I see someone I know.

Thankfully the whole point of the Bead Soup Blog Party is to create jewelry from a selection of beads (the soup) sent to you by your allotted partner.  I like that we get random partners and that we are not paired with someone because of similar styles.

The beads we send our partner are supposed to be a little bit of a challenge, a little out of their comfort zone. I am sure most of us who take on the BSBP challenge are in agreement that any beads are good beads. I mean I don’t want broken beads or completely mismatched beads, but pretty much any selection is good by me. As Tim Gunn would say we just have to ‘Make it work’.

I was very happy to see my beads sent by Cassi, they have so many possibilities and I can add all sorts to them. I can’t wait to get mixing and matching and making! No problem with ‘making it work’ here.






This last photo is the soup I sent to Cassi, a mix of shell, freshwater pearls, stick pears, Botswana agate and metal charms amongst Czech glass, quartz crystal and glass pearls.  I love this summery mix and I can’t wait to see what Cassi creates with it.  I know it is in good hands!
