Well, Bead Soup Blog Party – 7 is finally here! I eagerly wait for it each year ~ I love being a part of this creative process with such talented artists! It’s so much fun to see what everyone does with the bead soup they receive from their partners. Pretty much, no one knows each other, and the ingredients are not often something that the recipient usually works with. Lori Anderson, the creator of the event, challenges us to think outside the proverbial box and design pieces that we wouldn’t normally find in our design comfort zone.
My partner for this bead soup is the very talented Jodie Marshall. She loves beads ~ expecially beautiful lampwork beads! You can see (and buy!) her work here. Aren't her beads awesome?!? She's had a love affair for beads since she was a little girl and shared her passion with her grandma!
|Here are some of Jodie's lovelies that she makes!|
Here's what she sent me ~ such a fabulous colors ~ blues, greens, turquoises ~ all sparkly and waiting to be made into unique necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc.
This is what I did with the clasp Jodie sent me!
Thanks Jodie, for letting me play with your beautiful beads! I had so much fun creating this one-of-a-kind necklace with your fantastic glass beads! You're a very creative artist!
You can visit the websites for the other participants in the first reveal! Such an inspirational group of artists! Just click on the website to the right of the participant's name. It will take you to their blog where you can see what they designed with their partner's ingredients!
