6th Bead Soup Blog Hop

Here is the collection of my beads that I sent to my bead partner Karyn Lewis Bonfiglio for the 6th Bead Soup Blog Hop.  I looked over her blog and didn't see anything quite like this:

The ceramic bird focal was to be used for a bracelet as it is slightly curved to fit the wrist, but can be used otherwise just as well!  There are matching ceramic beads.  Vintage black glass beads, hematite beads and the blue glass beads and a vintage button for a closure rounds out the set.

I don't have to tell you how excited I am to see what she does with it.  Hope you have fun Karyn!

Thanks for stopping by, take care!  


  1. Beautiful beads! I love the cool blues. Can't wait for the first reveal date to see what everyone makes.

  2. She's a lucky girl - I love your ceramic pieces. I can't wait to see what she makes with these!

  3. Oh what a lucky partner you have. This is beautiful soup - just yummy.

    1. Thanks Jean, you are such an encourager!

  4. I definitely look forward to seeing her finished product(s)--your beads & bird focal are lovely!

  5. What a stunning bead soup kit! I'm in love with your ceramic focals so I have no doubt your partner will love the one you sent her as well :)

  6. OKay, Marti, here's my problem. It is hard enough for me to pick out soup for my partner - especially since I don't make components. So, I spent 24 hours picking some out, took pictures of it and then looked at your soup again. Now, there is no way I can send what I had. Lordy, this is the hardest part - if I can just get through this part, the rest should be easy.

  7. Uh oh! But I didn't have much choice not being a beader...had to send her something I made!
