Bead Soup Arrived From Across the Pond!

My bead soup has arrived!

My Bead Soup Blog Party partner is Stacy Alderson, and her bead soup package arrived in today's mail.  I made a quick visit to Stacy's blog, Iridal's Attic and discovered she likes beadweaving, knitting and is now making polymer clay beads.  She is a little nervous about participating in the party, but I don't think she has anything to worry about.  Her beaded hair combs are beautiful.  If I had more hair, I would definitely get one.

And a gorgeous lampwork focal with spacers and a sterling silver clasp.  The lampwork was done by Rob Johnson, Etsy.

Wow, this is great soup!  I already invision fringe of picasso and pearls, and possibly a rope chain.  The blue p/c beads might end up being used in the Art Bead Scene Challenge for this month!  Be sure to come back for the 28 July 2012 reveal!  Visit Pretty Things blog for participants.

2019 Bead Peeps Swap & Hop Reveal!

To my Peeps: I think as I get older, sickness lasts longer. Everyone is better now and down to sniffles.  On to the good stuff. My partner for this years' Swap & Hop was Dain Schlegel of Dainty Designs.  However, she is recovering from a surgery and wasn't able to get beads to me.  I hope she gets better soon.  So Linda Anderson set me up with an Angel.  Krafty Max sent me a whole lot of beads. Beads on strings, beads in tubes, stone cabochons, fused glass pendants, and Czech beads, rounds, and crystals. Although, I didn't use all of the beads, I did manage to put together a few pendants and UFOs. The pendant above is one of the stones I worked with. Here are the beads she sent: Here is a pendant made with a few blue and white stones from KM. It's finished, I just need to bead up a rope. This is supposed to be a Mini Mountain Girl bracelet (Regina Payne), and I used to small purple stone beads from KM. Thank you Krafty Max for the bea

Art Charm Exchange, Auction and Reveal!

Add caption The Art Charm Exchange hosted by Jennifer Cameron, Glass Addictions .  The purpose of the Art Charm Exchange, other than the opportunity to swap beautiful charms, was to make an extra charm to be auctioned off to... Beads of Courage !  The theme was laughter.  I agonized over this for several days before I buckled down and made the charms above.  I just used beautiful art beads from my collection, crystals, and a shrink art charm.  This was my first foray into art charms.  After I mailed them out to our wonderful hostess, I began to think about other things I could have done.  Oh well, maybe next time.  I cannot remember where all of the art beads came from, but I do know some came from Juli Cannon of Julsbeads , Carolyn Harmon, Miami Valley Lampwork Bead Association , Janel Goolsby/ JeraLunaDesigns , and a few artists with Ebay shops.  Thank you Jennifer for introducing me to a fun project and a wonderful charity. These are the charms I received: List of Parti
