Bead Soup Blog Party

I'm so excited, I get to participate in Bead Soup Blog Party! I got paired with Lara Lutrick, a lampwork artist and fellow Washingtonian. We get to exchange beads, make a piece of jewelry with the beads (plus whatever we want to add to the beads) then post the finished piece on our blogs. Fun!

Bead Star 2011

I would like to say a big congratulations to my Aunt Sheila, who placed third in the glass category in the 2011 Bead Star contest!  She is a talented lampwork artist and jewelry designer, and her bracelet, "Batik Sarong"  definitely deserved the honor!  Here is a photo of her bracelet, and if you'd like to check out her other awesome beads and jewelry, go to  Well, what are you waiting for? Go!

 I just found out about this cool Bead Soup Blog Party...It sounds really fun!  The participants are picked at random, and I hope I get picked!  It's a bead exchange, then you post what you make on your blog for everyone to see.  I want to play!
