Bead Soup Ingredients...

Lori Anderson of the Pretty Things blog started an online event called the Bead Soup Party. It's a more than just a bead swap, but a creative challenge started to inspire and encourage designers to step out of their comfort zone. My partner for the challenge is the mixed media artist and jeweler, Brenda Salzano. Brenda hails from the Northwest and has a very earthy aesthetic. CLICK HERE to check out her blog.

Above is a picture of the "ingredients" for my Bead Soup: a handmade ceramic focal pendant from Brenda, vintage shell bird fetishes, copper Indian bell dangles, a bluejay feather, polished agate, a vintage German button, bone tube beads, twine and an assortment of vintage glass beads. What a selection! I am excited to participate and am dreaming up all kinds of ideas of how to use these unique components. CLICK HERE to see what I sent Brenda.
