Is It Soup Yet?

I'm working on my jewelry designs using the bead soup I received from Dana James.  The big blog hop hosted by Lori Anderson starts at 12am EDT Friday night/Saturday morning.  Thank goodness that's 9pm for me.  Here are the goodies I got from Dana to use in my designs.

Included in the package of beady goodness was a pendant created from a piece of her original art and soldered between glass.  It's beautiful!  Another handmade item is a lovely hand forged copper clasp.  The beads include some black coral from Dana's trip to Columbia, pearls and Swarovski crystals.  She also sent along some sari silk which I LOVE, some chain, some sparkles and lots of different metal beads and focals.  

I've already made several pieces and still have enough for more jewelry.  So check back Friday July 27 at 9PM for the big reveal...


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! What great designs!! :)

  2. I love what you made with your soup. It is hard to pick a favorite but I really like the hand soldered pendant in the first necklace. The one below it is beautiful also.
