Bead Soup is Simmering

Bead Soup Bead Party is upon us and I have sent my bead soup package to my lovely partner Laura Guenther.  You met Laura in my last post.  Here is what I sent for Laura to work with. 

I sent Laura two different soups and two different color options.  Laura's work is usually on a smaller scale than mine so I wasn't totally sure about the pendant in the first soup. I wasn't sure if it would be out of her comfort zone, but I loved the colors in the pendant and thought that it would possibly give her a challenge, one that I am sure she is up to.  I also included some leather cording in that soup as well.  The second soup I felt was Laura.  It included a Unicorne glass heart with shades of red and blue. This soup consists of  silver pearls, red and blue Czech glass beads that I picked up on a trip to York Beads in New York City, the colors mimic colors in the heart, some blue quartz beads and some red glass beads.  I also included some Sari ribbon for Laura to work with.  I can't wait to see what Laura does with these.  Her work is always awesome.  Laura and I are in the second reveal date, April 6, so please come back then and  see what we cooked up with our soups.


  1. OMG these ingredients are the hearts desire! I am challenged but in a perfect way. The braided leather is calling but I don't know what to do with leather, its a thing that I have wanted to add to my work but never know quite what to do. I love this leather, oh the brown, the smell, the goodness! Ok, the big focal, I absolutely love it and I will be using it, be ready for some mixing of ingredients!!! I like everything you picked Linda! Whoohoo! I am off now to go stare at it again. xo Laura

  2. Let's see if this post will actually work!? Loving these colors! the iridescence of the beads with the fiber will make an amazing combo!
