The bead soup blog party has officially gotten underway! Lori Anderson has put together another bead soup blog party. You can take a look at http://www.prettythingsblog.com. She puts a ton of hard work into this, as there are over 300 of us doing it this time. We all sign up, she assigns partners, we send our partners a pendant, a pretty clasp and some coordinating beads. Once you get your package, you have about a week to make something fun with what you receive, adding beads and findings from your own personal stash. The idea is to get out of your own box and be stretched by using things you wouldn't normally choose. My partner is Pam Ferrari, who lives all the way out in California. She makes really beautiful beads with glass and a torch (boy would I love to take a trip to California and learn how :). You can take a peak at her blog, and see her gorgeous beads that she sells on etsy (going to have to buy a few special ones for myself, I think) http://ferrarioriginalsyahoocom.blogspot.com/. I can't wait to see what she sends me!!! Speaking of, I sent off her package yesterday. Want to see what goodies she is going to get?! Here is a sneak peek:
Sorry! Can't ruin the surprise! Hope you like your package, Pam!
