Welcome to the most exciting Blog Party in the jewelry/artist designer’s industry…. The 8th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal Date!!!

Today approximately 490 artist and designers enjoy a virtual party when every participant presents their creativity making wonderful jewelry pieces.  And everything is possible thanks to the wonderful lady Lori Anderson.

This is my first Party and it was so remarkable.  For this occasion I have been honor to participate to this Blog Party with my lovely partner Judy Riggs.   We swap beads and want to show you what I sent to her…..

What I sent BSBP
The Soup that I sent to my partner Judy Riggs

And Judy sent me these fabulous beads ……

This is the soup that I received from Judy.

The first thing that I see in these beads was the colors.  So rich and bright that inspire me, not only to make the BSBP final pieces, but also inspired to play with other colors combination for my own designs, like this flower that I made.

Torch Fired Enameled Wire
I create this enameled wire pendant flower, inspired by the colors of the soup.

The other thing is my first time to make pieces with lampwork beads.  I’ve been hoarding some lampwork bead for a while.  I love them but I found that I was having problems to incorporate them to my pieces.  But now I have the wonderful time and opportunity to play with some of them. And what better to do with the beads that Judy sent me!! 🙂

This is what I finally create!! 🙂
