Kalmbach Bead Soup Party!

In honor of Lori Anderson's new book.........

Bead Soup: 32 Projects Show What Happens When 26 Beaders Swap Their Stash


Kalmbach Publishing is hosting a bead soup party. Bead and Jewelry stores all over the US sent in bead soups for participants to receive and create a beautiful necklace with the soup ingredients they received. 

Those of us that filled out the application, anxiously waited for the postal service, In hopes that one of these lovely yellow envelopes would find their way into our mailboxes.

 I was sure I was not one of those lucky participants as I waited and waited.........

But much to surprise and delight, one of those glorious yellow envelopes found it way to me. Yeah! I get to participate! 


My bead soup comes from Facets of Isis

I am so excited! Oh the possibilities....... This soup is simmering!
