Feather Bead Soup 2014 to Crystal

Bead Soup Blog Party # 8 Partner Intro


I think Lori Anderson a.k.a. Pretty Things goes to a load of work to match up partners.

Thank you Lori and helpers for making this a really fun blog party.

My partner this round is the talented Crystal Rector a.k.a. Autumn Sky Adornments.

Do check out her beautiful on line site and her etsy store.

She happens to be an amazing henna artist, seed beader, hula hooper, mixed material artist, and all out lover of living a fun life.

I know she received her bead soup yesterday, so it’s safe to post the soup ingredients that I sent her way.

Feather Bead Soup 2014 to Crystal

Lots of stuff to play with. Ceramic focal pieces from Birgitta Lejonklou (AngelWhisperer on Etsy), lampwork glass focal mermaid bead by my friend Jessica (Wild About Beads in Tiverton, Rhode Island), some odd lampwork beads, macrame piece and a serged silk kimono ribbon by me, and tons of fun findings, some cord, twin beads  in the blue and purple color palette. Can’t wait to see what Crystal creates with this soup.
