For those of you who don't know about the Bead Soup Party , the wonderfully talented Lori Anderson cooked up a great idea one New Years for a Blog hop, Bead Soup Party.
The rules state you exchange a focal, clasp and some coordinating beads, sight unseen, with another participant that Lori has carefully selected for you. You have a limited amount of time to create your piece(necklace or bracelet) then on the reveal date you post a photo of your creation and the blog hopping begins. This is an amazing undertaking by our host Lori - there were over 200 participants last time and this bead soup party has 300 participants, that's a lot of people to sort thru ,contact and matchup , tons of behind the scenes work needed to set up this event. We are all so appreciative to Lori for her commitment to share this fun gathering of creative beaders.
I am partnered in this 4th Bead Soup Party with Nancy Peterson, who does amazing ,intricate pieces using seed beads. Many of you may recognize Nancy's name and jewelry from well known magazines that have published her work.
