Mini Bead Soup Swap

Lori Anderson at Pretty Things Blog is hosting her 5th Bead Soup Blog Hop with the reveal date of March 3rd.  Lori's Bead Soup Blog Hops are so popular that there were over 350 people that signed up to do the hop this time.  Because of the time that it takes to hop to that many blogs, Lori decided to limited the number of participants to 200, and these participants were selected via random selector.  I unfortunately was not one of the lucky participants for this go round, but no worries since everyone that is interested will be included in the next hop.

In the meantime, Keri Sereika of Pink Lemonade put together a mini hop with 13 people with a reveal date of April 1.  I was paired up with Bryna Lumb of Brynas Beadbox.  Oh so exciting!  Here is the soup that Bryna sent me.  She is a talented lampwork artist and I was fortunate enough to get from Bryna a beautiful lampwork focal bead, two additional lamp work beads, and complimentary accent beads to complete the piece(s). 

Our reveal date will be April 1.  While I can wait to get started on my taxes, I can't wait to get started on my jewelry pieces.  Please come back on April 1 (and that no fooling) to see what I did with these beautiful beads. Also check out 
Bryna's blog to see what I sent her.  Check out these other participant's blogs and be sure to come back April 1 for the big reveal.
