I'm a totally lucky bead girl! I got paired up with Diane Hawkey, this time around for the Bead Soup Blog Party, and I'm so excited about my soup! Look at all this goodness...I didn't pose everything very well (note, the upside-down birdies), but you can see the greens and turquoises and purples in the mix. The pieces she made are the best!
Diane cracks me up. I wanted to get to know her better before sending her some my soup version, so I read back for a while on her blog. She has a great view of the world...and all the crap that seems to come along on a daily basis. :) My favorite post from her is back in July when she's talking about surviving a hot day at a show...complete with question upon question about how beads work. Yeah...that hole is for something, for sure. haaaaaaaaaaaaaa She also had to explain that her ceramic works of art are not painted rocks. Seriously?
On the painted rock/ceramic gorgeousness front: check out this focal bead that I get to work with:
and this awesome clasp:
I'm already well into the creative process, which is a good thing since the reveal for the party is on Saturday. I'm just thrilled that I didn't forget or wait until the complete last minute! There are over 300 folks involved in the Party this round, so it's going to be a heck of a creative blog adventure. Come back and see my finished products on Saturday and then go see what Diane did with the beads I sent her way.
