Would you believe I got my friend Mary Harding as a partner for the Bead Soup Blog Party!?!
At first I was like, "Yay!" And then I thought, "How unfair that I get to receive such awesomeness when someone else hasn't even gotten to hold her work in their hand, much less create with something?"
Mary and I have worked together on a few projects and every piece I receive from her is classy, well made, ethereal and soooooooooooooo enjoyable to make jewelry with.
Mary created my set specifically for me which is way too sweet and kinda funny because the set I sent her, I have had set aside to create a necklace with that featured one of her pendants.
So I am extra excited to see her take on what she received from me.
(Mary, the shell charms were included to challenge you, Meadow Child!)
Here is the bead soup I received;
Flowing over with teal, orange and purple shades; these handmade earthenware clay pieces include a huge pendant that makes you think of a field full of flowers blowing in the wind, complimenting coin beads, connectors and a toggle clasp.
I had so much fun with this set, the pieces just fell together in an evening.
Mary is one of the most generous people I know, she also included lovely pastel colored beads in shades of sage green and buttery yellow.....
And vivid blue porcelain beads that I am excited to put with some African glass;
Mary, thank you for all you included in your package, this made for such a great time opening and discovering new beads I could create with!
If you would like to see what I sent Mary for her to create with, please visit her blog post here;
Now don't forget to come back for the big reveal date of everyone's Bead Soup on March 3rd.
My own reveal will include a give-away for an earring kit that includes patina-ted circles and Mary's heart charms.
