Party Time! Welcome to the Bead Soup Extravaganza.

It’s Bead SoBSPB4up time. The lovely Lori Anderson is the coordinator of the Bead Soup party. Click here to find a list of all the participating blogs.

Basically it works like this: All participating artists are matched up with another artist and we send a focal, a clasp and some coordinating beads off to our partners. Then we each make a piece of jewelry and blog about it on party day.

Today is party day! My partner, B.R. Kuhlman (be sure to stop by her blog to see what I sent her and what she did with my beads), sent me this jam-packed box of goodies:

There were a lot of goodies in my package. I admit to being a little overwhelmed with what to do with it all, but she sure left me with a lot of choices.

So without further ado, here is what I created. It’s a little out of my norm, since there isn’t any lampwork in it at all. I thought about adding some, but she gave me so much to work with, I wanted to devote this piece to just her beads.

BR did the gorgeous wire-wrapping on the pendant, and I put everything else together.

So you tell me. How did I do?
