Bead Soup Blog Party #4

Bead Soup headquarters: Lori's blog http://lorianderson-beadsoupblogparty.blogspot.com/





My bead partner Christine Hendrickson of The Clay Chick, sent me a fun assortment of beads.
The dark brown ceramic ones Christine made herself.

I added very few beads to what she sent. I did add some brass beads for a mix of silver and brass and a silk ribbon of recycled silk. I made a brass hook for the necklace and used the silver toggle Christina sent in the bracelet. I didn't use the coin shaped shell beads from my soup but have a few ideas of what I am going to do with them.
Please stop by The Clay Chick to see what Christine made with the mix I sent her.

You are also invited to stop by my jewelry blog, it was being moved to a new host at the time of the sign up so was down for a while.http://www.prairieemporium.com/ My farm and family blog is glad you are here and have a great weekend of blog hopping.

  9. I am SO sorry for being late — today our internet provider decided to crash. My stress level is through the roof, to say the least! They’re still working on it, but it’s like dial-up.

    Love, love, love anything in red, and you really worked it well!

    I hope you’ll participate again!

    Love, Lori
