Bead Soup Blog Party #6 Reveal 2

Well it's time for the 2nd reveal of the 6th bead soup blog party. This is my day to show what I've made with my bead soup that I got from my partner Debbie. Don't forget to visit her page to see what she cooked up. This was the yummy soup ingredients that she sent me. 

I made several pieces from this soup. It took me a few attempts, before I came up with these pieces. I just loved the stone she sent me.

Thanks to my partner Debbie and to Lori Anderson who hosted this wonderful opportunity to have so many creative talented artists in one place.
The 3rd and final reveal will be hosted August 25th.
