Look at what I received from my Bead Soup Blog Party partner, Jodie Marshall! Jodie is a lamp work bead creator and fabulous beader! I love the colors of the soup she sent me, don't you?!? 

I have to admit ~ I'm not overly comfortable working with lamp work beads ~ I'm afraid they will crack or chip while I'm working with them, and I tend to be a little more austere and rustic in my designs (with a Miriam Haskell twist, of course!). 

With that said, Jodie's bead soup has me excited about the possibilities of creating something she would be proud of! Above all ~ I don't want her to cringe when she sees my reveal on March 30th at the blog party!
