Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party, Part 1

I am taking part in Lori Anderson’s 7th Bead Soup Blog Party.

Briefly, jewelry maker’s exchange beads and make jewelry for themselves from what their partner sent. The soup consists of: a nice/fancy clasp, a focal bead, some spacer or accent beads, etc.

I just shipped my beads to my wonderful partner Molly Alexander. Here’s a teaser photo of what I sent:

When Molly receives them, I will show you the actual photo. And when I receive her beads, I will show you that soup mix as well.

If it isn’t obvious, I will also show you what each of us makes with the beads sent.

I think Molly will get the skimpiest soup mix out of everyone. I sent super diet soup mix. I’ve already warned her and she’s being SO gracious. I think I got the best bead soup partner ever.

Molly is helping me a lot with my first bead soup. Here, have a look at her blog and her Etsy store.

Gorgeous, inventive creations.

BTW, I’d like to thank everyone who has commented here and/or emailed me to say nice things about my recent blog posts. I’m glad to hear my info on the new shipping rates is helpful.

Went to Santa Rosa yesterday for a hockey game so today I hope to catch up on photographing and listing.

I have two more window pieces in the works; hopefully they’ll be ready later this week.


  1. Oh my gosh Laura - I just got my soup mix from you and I am SOOOOOO excited! Thank you for sending such beautiful beads - I can't wait to get started!
