Here are the pictures of the soups that Laura times 2 have sent each other.
I received many of Laura's lamp work beads.
I already have some projects that have popped into my head. Now, to see if I can create what I see in my imagination, will be the challenge. Another challenge for me, will be working with large beads. Laura's beads are bigger than the beads I normally work with. So, this is perfect, because this is what the Bead Soup Blog Party is all about. Creating and challenging yourself! I am thrilled to work with these beads! The colors and the designs are fabulous. Laura was very generous in what she sent me. Besides the handmade beads, she sent a beautiful clasp, some wonderful leaf beads, and some sparkly glass beads. The soup is simmering!

Focal Beads by Laura Blanck
Clasp and extra beads that Laura sent to me.
The pictures below are the Bead Soup I sent Laura.
I created the enamel beads and pendant with the text "Sing" and "Dance"
because Laura is a performer.
I also created the enamel art quote pendant.
I made the silver solder clasp and wing of which
I was happy with how they
turned out. I wanted to give Laura a choice with the focal.
Here is the picture of the entire soup together. I chose bright colors, because Laura is bright and cheerful. I cant wait to see which focal Laura uses! Stay tuned for our pieces in the May 3rd reveal.
