Received My Soup Today

I received my Bead Soup today!  So excited to get started. This is my fourth Bead Soup Bead Party participation.  You get teamed with a partner anywhere in the world and you exchange a "Bead Soup which you have to use the Focal and the Clasp.  Most bead partners send coordinating beads to go with those two items.  I normally send two soups but my partner didn't want lots of beads to be sent because she is new to jewelry making.  So I will be giving a Bead Soup away after the reveal.  The winner will be selected randomly from people who make comments on my reveal.  More on the contest later.

Back to my Bead Soup, Marti Conrad my partner went all out on her cute packaging!

So cute little tied up packages in blue denim!  I immediately thought of my friend Jeanie who makes just lovely quilts.

 Then on to whats in the packaging.  These beautiful candy colored beads go so well with the greens in the gemstones.  Kinda way out of my comfort zone using gemstones but I love these colors.  So Spring!  She also included these really cute vintage looking connectors on the left.  Not really connectors but I am blanking on what there called right now.

Finally look at this beautiful clasp that Marti made herself, out of clay. Just beautiful.  The clasp is handmade by Jean Wells.
Stay tuned for my reveal on May 3rd to see what I did with these beads.


  1. can't wait to see what you make

  2. Beautiful soups, both of you. I do hope you like the clasp. Marti asked me to make it just for you, which I was honored to do, and she made that pendant just for you. I do hope you enjoy designing with it.


Thank you for your comments. I would love to hear what you think of my desgns
