Bead Soup Party--Here's what I Made!


Sandra Neights of Marabella Jewelry Designs on Etsy was my Bead Soup partner. Be sure to visit her store. She has some beautiful pieces of handcrafted PMC pieces in her store. Gorgeous!

I was the lucky recipient of one of her pieces in my bead kit! Look at that focal! Because of that beautiful focal, I decided that it deserved to be the center of attention in my design.
As per the rules, I used the focal bead and the clasp in my design. Oh, my, it is beautiful! I can hardly wait to wear this bracelet!

Thank you, Lori, for such a wonderful match!
