Bead Soup Blog Party #7 Reveal

Time for the first reveal at the Bead Soup Blog Party # 7.

First off, I was thrilled with all the beads, charms and bits that my partner Debra Behrends (Hopeful Journeys) shared with me.

So much good stuff that I could not fit everything into my limited design time.

Next up, I’d like to thank Lori Anderson (Pretty Things) for hosting this event and at the same time, to thank all the party goers who make this such a blog blast. Reserve some time for blog hopping. It’s a treat. Participants links are here.

A few words about my design process. Mostly I just sit down and make stuff. Not much for sketching, or grand design planning. I trust that the piece will come into being and to be what it needs to be. And, that it will appeal to someone, somewhere.

Bead Soup September 2011 Served Piping Hot!

The fabulous Bead Soup Blog Party reveal day has arrived. Many, many participants from around the globe this year, so get ready for a full day of blog hopping. Once again, thanks out to the gracious host, Lori Anderson (Pretty Things); as well as to all the amazing artists who are participating this year.

As a appetizer, the beads sent to me by my wonderfully talented partner, Carol Bradley (Carol Bradley Designs.) I was so enamored with her enameled beads that she inspired me to order some enamels from Painting With Fire.
