Bead Soup Ingredients

If you frequent my shop you know this color combination is exactly me. Turquoise and amber colored glass paired with brass and copper chain.

Wonderful toggle clasp and bead from Green Girl Studios, another favorite of mine. Best of all, Lisa made the domed cooper disks, she etched them and applied a patina to bring out the design. Check out her etsy shop for some wonderful jewelry choices.

I love these!!!

Lori Anderson of Pretty Things is running her second Bead Soup Blog Party, and she knew what she was doing when she paired me with Lisa of Lucid Moon Studio. Lisa was one of my first customers last year, and has been so supportive of my shop. Lisa is a sweetheart who just got married last year, loves the beach, and has a sweet dog named Cooper. Lisa loves to run and compete, in fact she just participated in her first triathlon and was first in her class.

Lisa sent me my bead soup ingredients a while ago, and I have been tardy about showing them off. She sent me some wonderful pieces and I have so many choices I am going to make more than one piece of jewelry. Check out the captions under the photos for more details.

The big Bead Soup Party reveal is the week of June 19th, there will be a lot of wonderful work to look at, I will keep you posted. Thank you for the wonderful ingredients Lisa, and thank you Lori for hosting this event.

Tomorrow is Wednesday beads, I have been going through my glass bead inventory and have put together some spacer collections that are great deals. I also have plenty of enamel choices, I seem to have acquired another addiction.

Thanks for such a nice post, Anne! Your photography skills are amazing...I didn't even recognize my stuff at first, lol. I'm glad you took nice photos because I forgot (again) to take any before I sent my bead soup to you! I can't wait to see what beautiful jewelry you make! Also can't wait to see your shop update :)

Awww, you both just gave me such a warm fuzzy feeling. I can feel the friendship and love you two have. How wonderful to be able to spread the word and help each other out.

Personally, I LOVE this collection you received Anne. I can't wait for the reveal!

Thanks for sharing a bit about Lisa. I can't wait to hear more!
