As you may already know, I have decided that this is the year that I take the plunge with my beads and jewelry and really put myself out there. To do this, I have signed up for several shows in the MI area and I have decided to join the Bead Soup Blog Party created by Lori Anderson. If you are not familiar with the Bead Soup Blog Party here is a link:
In a nut shell, Lori pairs up bloggers, artists and jewelry designers. You send a "soup" of beads including a focal bead and a clasp to your partner and they design something with those items. There will be 3 reveal dates where you reveal what you have designed. The fun of this is to meet new people and see their work and their blogs.
I have been paired up with another blogger and jewelry designer Karen Vincent. Her designs can be found here at Swallowtail Jewellery. http://www.swallowtailjewellery.blogspot.com/
Her and her daughter design the most delightful jewelry, I hope you will check out her blog page, Facebook and Etsy pages as well.
I shipped out my soup ingredients today, and Karen will have them in 2 days. Our reveal date is April 6th, so stay tuned to see what we make.
