Welcome to the Party!!

Bead Soup Blog Hop Party that is!  Well, I'm fashionably late for the party :)  It started at midnight East Coast time and here I am, almost 2 am your time...8 pm here in Hawaii. Are any of you really up and hopping now? I bet there are some of you!  After you've looked through my photos, check my last post for the list of participants for this 'First Reveal' and see what amazing things party goers have created.  I am always so impressed with the talented people that join in.

And a BIG Thank You to Lori Anderson for once again putting together another wonderful party for us all--what an undertaking!!

Here's what I've been stirring up with my luscious soup fixings...


I just love the little lampwork glass Earth Mother focal bead Niky sent.  Isn't she perfect?  And those little white polka dot black beads are just the cutest ever. I used most everything Niky sent.  Just a few treasures left for some special additions to other pieces.  Necklace, Bracelet, and Earrings -- A perfect set for me!

Here are some close ups....



And my bracelet...



I'm very happy with the Necklace and Earrings.... but not so sure about the Bracelet.  I felted rushed to finish and post photos tonight so it may change a bit. I'll let you know :)

So....Get yourself a little something to drink and maybe a little snack, sit back and go visiting!  Thanks for stopping by!
