Bead Soup and the fabulous Lisa Liddy

I hope that you have been staying cool this summer.  We are at the tail end (I hope) of the heat wave hitting the East Coast.  I am looking forward to some cooler temperatures this week.

I am again participating in Lori Anderson's fun Bead Soup Party.  I love the challenge that participating gives me.  As someone who works primarily with seed beads and crystals, I like the challenge of using mediums that I wouldn't necessarily choose for myself.

My partner this time is the fabulous metal work artist, Lisa Liddy of Metal Me This.  She sent me a fun batch of beads including one of her beautiful clasps. I think it is my favorite!  She also included some lamp work beads and pendant by Koregon Beads and a lovely polymer pendant by C. Friesen.  I love that she was so thoughtful and sent me a bunch of seed beads and extra cabacons to use in the future along with some lovely green pearls.

I have so many fun ideas percolating in my head for these beads.  I wish that I did wirewrapping because I have a great idea for these for a bracelet.  I am looking forward as always to seeing the vast array of talent on Bead Soup reveal day.  Stay tuned for a sneak pek along the way.  In the meantime check out Lisa's website with her beautiful metalwork.

Looking at the other pieces on your blog I am so sad you didn't have time to make everything you had in mind - I just know they ALL would have been gorgeous :) But you did manage to finish one very pretty piece and I for one am happy you did!
