It’s here…it’s time for the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party!!!

The 7th Bead Soup Blog Party is here! Created & hosted by Lori Anderson of Lori Anderson Designs.
The hop has become so big it is now a once a year event.
Lori pairs up partners who will swap a mix of beads called bead soups. The soups have to consist of a focal, a special clasp and coordinating beads. Something you would be proud to give to your best friend. We then create something using both the focal and the clasp and mix in any of the beads sent and anything else you would like to add.
This time the party is even bigger than the last. Because of the size the reveal will be broken up into 3 different dates. We all will post pictures and a little blurb about our soups and finished piece. Then we visit each other’s blog and are treated to an incredible amount of eye candy!

My partner for this hop Is Stephanie Weiss. Stephanie loves metalworking and is an admitted hoarder of lampwork glass. I’m very excited to have her as a partner. We exchanged little bits about our families and ourselves. I was delighted that her story made me think of my own family and when my kids were her daughters age. She started learning wire wrapping just 2 years ago and now getting more into metalworking.
I just love her metalwork and am heading a bit in the same direction. Lori did another great job pairing people.
I have been having a major dilemma in deciding what to send. I have narrowed it down to 3 soups to pick from. I hope she really loves the soup I choose and enjoys the little fun extras I am sending.

Here are a few pictures of her work...

      Not sure why you had trouble finding my partner...I did add a least I think I did. Sorry I do struggle with all this computer stuff. :(

      Happy Soup!
