Bead Soup Partners

Hello!  I am very happy to be involved in another Bead Soup Blog Hop.  My lovely partner is Kiersten Kern of Red Opal Designs.  She makes the most beautiful lampwork glass beads.  Kiersten lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  You can check out her gorgeous jewellery at Red Opal Designs.  Stop by Kiersten's Facebook page and say "hello".  Our reveal date is April 6th and we have both sent and received each others beads.  Here are the beautiful beads I received from Kiersten.

The complete Soup

I can't wait to get cooking with this gorgeous soup!  The lampwork focal bead is gorgeous - love it!  I dabble in a bit of glass bead making myself and would love to be able to create beads like Kiersten's. I already have a few ideas of what I am going to make so stay tuned!  As always a huge "thank you" to Lori Anderson for organizing this wonderful Bead Soup Blog Hop.  Check out her blog and click on the  Bead Soup link to see who else is participating. 
Have a wonderful week!!
