Bead Soup is Boiling, part 2

I volunteered to have two partners in the Bead Soup Blog Party in an effort to make myself have fun with this instead of feeling so stressed about it (as I did with my first partner). My second partner is Candice and she has a blog that's even newer than mine. It's here. Her original partner disappeared (so sad) so we made our swaps.

First of all, let me just say that I had so much fun picking out beads for Candice. Because her blog is so new, I had not a single clue about what she's into or what she likes. So I just picked out things I like. That was fun. And a lesson learned.

What I got was a very special package, with a really nice note from Candice. The beads, she said are old & new. Some are from her mom's broken jewelry (dating to the 1970s and 1980s). Her 3-yo son picked out the square beads. So cute!

I don't know what stone the focal is but it has such depth with great color. I hope the photo lets you see it well enough.



Lori said that because I have two partners, I can either make two items OR make one thing using the beads from both partners. I haven't made that decision yet. I guess you'll see on the Big Reveal Day!

Sally, that is great - TWO Bead Soups! You lucky lady. I think it will be fun to design either way - two separate pieces, or combining them both. Looks like you have a fun challenge in the weeks ahead. :-)
