The Bead Soup Party Update

Cindy Beads

Beads from my Bead Soup Partner, Cindy Wimmer

Here are the beads from my Bead Soup Party partner, Cindy Wimmer. If you click on the photo you can go on over to her site and see the terrific jewelry she makes using her own wire work and other beads. She makes really fun jewelry, and she writes articles for several magazines. I was in the grocery store the other day, and wanted to treat myself to something, so I picked up a copy of “Easy Wire”, mainly because I really liked the bracelet on the cover. Guess what? The bracelet was Cindy’s!

I don’t usually do wire work – if any of that happens around here, it is done by Jim. And his style of work is entirely different than Cindy’s. So, I learned a lot from her articles in the magazine, and as a result have decided that my necklace for the Bead Soup party will have some wire work by me in addition to Cindy’s meticulous yet fun links. She has inspired me to step outside my own jewelry making box, and party! Stay tuned.

All of us in the bead party will be posting our results on February 10th. Read more here: The Bead Soup Party
