5th Bead Soup Blog Party Participant

This year I decided to stretch, nurture, and focus more on my creative endeavors.

A friend of mine sent me the link to Lori Anderson's Pretty Things Blog  as there was an opportunity to participate in a blog hop and stretch my creative skills!  I entered my name along with several hundred people and am been blessed to have been selected to participate in the 5th Bead Soup Blog Party!

Each participate is paired up with a partner, my partner is Helen Kemp of Helen's Adornments and Helens Adornments Blog.  As you can see from the bead soup ingredients,  Helen makes beautiful glass beads!

Helen and I have exchanged beads and it's now up to each of us to create a focal, use a clasp and incorporate the beads sent  into 1 to 3 beautiful design!

The purpose of Bead Soup is to work outside one's normal comfort zone using new materials and pushing our creative styles in a new direction.

Helen, myself and several other designers will be revealing our creations on March 3 when the blog hop begins!  

I have decided that I will give away one of my designs made from Helen's beads!
I will randomly pick a winner from those whom comment on my posts regarding the Bead Soup Blog Party!

Leave a comment to be included in this contest!   

Best of luck and happy creating to all the 5th Bead Soup Blog Party Participants!
