Bead Soup Blog Party 8

I'm taking part in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party again this year. For the party, almost 500 people with blogs sign up to swap a bead soup and send it to their partner. The partner then makes something with what they have received. Then everyone posts a reveal picture of what they made on the same date in May. This year I was paired up with Liz whose blog is Bead Contagion. She does fabulous bead embroidery work. Last week I received the soup she sent. We both actually received what the other sent super fast to the credit of the USPS. We live on opposite sides of the country but received our stuff within a two days. She definitely sent me some great colors, but colors I never work with. It will be fun to design something to use with these beads! (Unfortunately both pictures below are sideways/upside down and I can't figure out how to fix them. Oh well!)
I have never used so much orange in one piece, but will love the challenge of it!

This is what I sent her.


  1. I can't wait to see what we both come up with :-)

  2. As I understand it, the "rules" are use the focal and clasp, not necessarily even in the same piece. In no way, shape or form should you feel compelled to use all the beads!
