Hip Hip Horray! Today is the day ! Yay. 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party.

Image
I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I know there are a lot of blogs to view.
 This event is BIG!  It's time to reveal my Bead Soup First a big Thank You to Lori Anderson who has made this possible. I've participated in the past and have always enjoyed this event. So much inspiration. So much talent. It's wonderful to make new friends too! My partner this year is Asri Wahyuningsih.  Asri is an amazing polymer clay artist. Her detail is breathtaking.
This is what she sent to me.

At first I thought of adding my lampwork glass beads to this blog soup bead project. Then I thought, her work is so beautiful, I don't want anything distracting the eye when looking at it. My design needed to be sleek and simple.  Sometimes, less is more.  Here are my finished pieces.I hope you enjoy and kindly leave a quick comment below.                                             Thank you.

I love the way these beads turned out. Yellow, sky blue and cobalt blue. Plus I've etched them for that frosted matte look.
