Only one Bead Soup this year but Lori has done a fantastic job of organizing and setting up partners. It's almost midnight here and I am in the first reveal for March 30 - so here is my piece ...
The beautiful beads are from my partner Rachel Stanley. I tend to wear more bracelets than necklaces and really wanted a two stand bracelet.
On this bracelet I did wire guards at both ends but only added split rings at one end. Next bracelet will have split rings on both ends and that makes it a lot easier to crimp the wire. I used the magical crimp pliers so my crimp beads are round.
The nice thing about bead soup is that it makes me look at how I have been making things and want to improve my designs for a more polished, finished look.
Hopefully I have the link working www.BeadSoupBlogParty.com so that you can go to other participants in Bead Soup VII.
And Lori - thanks again - I really enjoy these exchanges.
