Bead Soup Party!

This year I decided to join Lori Anderson's bead soup exchange!  I've been wanting to participate for some time.  (I'm a little late with this blog post but I'm also new to blogging!!). Everyone who signs up is paired with someone and they exchange a "bead soup". It must include a focal bead and a special clasp.  Then each person makes something with theis soup and the creations are posted all on the same day for everyone to see :) My partner was Jodie Marshall  She is also a glass lampworked but also does really cool seed beading!!! 

My box came and it was uber cool and decorated all bright and cheery!

Inside was little packages of beady goodness and some candies :)

Opening the packages revealed some awesome beads!  Some were enameled , some were her lampwork (a very awesome disk bead) and some were seed beaded!!  I love the fall type colors! 

And the clasp!  It was SO perfect!  She had no idea that elephants hold a special place in my heart because they are my daughters favorite :D

I absolutely LOVE everything and have started planning out my jewelry pieces :)
