7th Bead Soup Blog Party!

Well, well, well....it's that time again!  Time for the much anticipated:

7th Bead Soup Blog Party hosted by the one and only:

Lori Anderson, blogger, author and hostess extraordinaire!

There are over 500 participants (including yours truly) this time around - a new record.  I'm stoked to put together a beautiful soup for my partner and cannot wait to see what everybody creates with their soup!  This is an exciting time for bead participants from all around the globe!  Stay tuned for updates!

I've made a few things lately and seeing as how I'm writing a blog today I will include pics for you!


 Everybody seems to love these clear cracked glass beads!  I've paired them up with class black onyx for a style you will reach for every day because it goes with everything!
This gold tone bracelet features plasticized turquoise and glass beads for a rather beautiful look.  It's chunky, lightweight and just plain ole pretty!
 I've ignored some of my glass beads for long enough.  Here are some really cool blue spotted glass beads paired with clear crystal bicones.  Think summer......the beach.....the sun.......you know!
Big, chunky yellow lampwork beads and clear gobs of crystal - such a pretty springy look!
 I just love how the natural pearls pop with these painted lime green glass beads.
 More green glass beads paired with a very subtle shade of pink crystal make for a very pretty, simple bracelet that will take you through spring and summer!
I don't make a lot of gold tone jewelry but I had these long gold tubes that were calling me....the blue stone is called riverstone.  Haven't decided if I will keep this set for myself or not yet!  The necklace doubles as a bracelet - it wraps around my wrist 3 times - love that style.










Thanks so much for dropping by my blog today.  If you're interested in the weather, it's a balmy -24 in Northern Alberta this afternoon with light snow and a nasty wind!  Namaste!
