Bead Soup #5 & New Beads...

Happy February all...life here has been good, lots of unseasonable sunshine to play in...I have made lots of beads that I will be listing for you in the next few days, some have already been listed in my etsy shop... photo teaser below...if you see something you want let me know I will send you a paypal invoice...

Lets talk Bead Soup: as many of you know the fabulous Lori Anderson of Pretty Things puts together the best blog hop bead soup party ever...this is the 5th one. I got lucky & got paired up with the very talented Jeanette Blix. I have to say I am both excited & a bit worried, Jeanette's work is well known & featured in many great publications, excited to see what she makes with the bead soup I sent her, mystery photo below. Worried I wont do justice to the soup she is sending me, I got the focal today & it is so gorgeous, a handmade pewter goddess from Mamacita Beadworks... the big blog hop will be on March 3rd, make sure you stop by & check out 200 blogs...sorry you can not see what I sent her until later...

Bead Giveaway: The first bead of 2012 goes to the lovely Melissa Meman... for this (week/month what ever it will end up being) giveaway I have the yummy red murrini bead above in Turquoise & Black dots enter to win it by making a comment on this blog...maybe you can tell me what your favorite colors are to work with this season...

Thanks so much for stopping by...life is good...

Love the new beads you have up now! They remind me that the cold is going away soon. I love the blues, they so remind me of beautiful ocean waters and of course the reds and greens. As I think about it there aren't too many colors that you use that I don't like. Have fun with Bead Soup.
Peace

I like the new beads-the shape, the designs, the colors. I always enjoy visiting your blog and looking at your lovely beads.
