LET THE BEAD SOUP PARTY BEGIN!!
Be sure that you check out the entire party list by going to Lori's Blog. I am anxious to be able to see what everyone did with their soup!
This has been a lot of fun, visiting everyone's blogs and being challenged with materials that were chosen for me. Thank you so much Lori for this PARTY!!
I didn't remember to take a picture of what I sent ahead of time to Beth or to take a picture of what she sent me before I started working. Fortunately Beth did!! You can see the original materials that she sent me and that I sent her in this post on her blog.
As I said in an earlier post, the materials that Beth chose for me really challenged me. I like beadweaving and it is where I am most comfortable. For the life of me though an idea didn't present itself to me to incorporate beadweaving with the great focal. What it did do is make me drag out some of the beads that I have been hoarding for awhile and put them to good us. It was a process of laying out the beads, stringing the beads, taking them all apart and looking for more beads or different beads. It was a really good exercise in balance. I love the little touches of labrodite that I added. I found some at my local bead store that just had some great fire within. Well enough of my rambling, here is my bead soup challenge piece!!
