Today is the big reveal of the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party.
First I have to give a big thank you to Lori Anderson, the host and creator of this fantastic event.
Second, thank you to my awesome partner Kristin Oppold of Yay Jewelry. This is her 2nd hop. Her designs are amazing! I can not wait to see what she created!

|The soup I sent Kristen. I threw in some sheet aluminum I ran through an embossing machine and some recycled discs and gears for fun.|
|Lampwork beads and focal I made for the hop.|
|Fused glass bowl made with recycled float glass and enamel powders that I drew the design in with a stylus.|
|My soup from Kristen.|
|The cool focals she sent.|
|A close up of the clasp and earrings.|
Bracelet made with crackle agate from Kristin and copper that I cut, punched holes in, hammered, sanded with very coarse grit, and antiqued. I love the texture and it has sort of an ocean feel to it.
