Bead Soup Party Teaser

by Lyn Foley on June 8, 2010

Remember the first Bead Soup Party a few months back? Lori Anderson organized it all, and what fun it was. So much fun, that  Lori has organized a second “Party.” My partner this time is Rebecca Sirevaag. She sent me beads, I sent her  beads, and on June 22nd we will post what we made with the “bead soup.” So exciting, a real challenge, and here are the teaser pictures.

I’ve already made a really terrific piece with the beads she sent me. Here’s two hints: I altered the wonderful copper focal she made by removing the gemstone that was hiding the nice etching she did on the copper. AND – ta-da – someone already know what the necklace looks like, and agrees it is wonderful, because she bought it at the Texas Arts and Crafts Festival! It was my first sale of the show, and good thing I had already taken photos of it, yes? Sorry, you’ll just have to wait for the party reveal date later in June to see the finished necklace. I’ll keep you posted.
