Cooking Some Bead Soup

It is that wonderful time of year again when, having signed up for Bead Soup Blog Party 8 and getting matched with a partner, I get to serve up some bead soup.

This year my partner is Jennifer Van Horn from Jennifers Jewels And Junk. I read through her blog to learn more about her and her style and I found these lovelies:

I asked her to tell me a little bit about her style. She wrote back:

The earrings are very me. I love pastels but also black & brights but usually don't work in primary colors. I like earth tones if i can slip some pink or aqua in there. I use wire, silk, cords, leather, no gold. I haven't found my niche but am working on it.

Jennifer sweetly assured me that she'd love the soup I sent. Cross your fingers with me because I definitely sent some challenging materials ... not completely on purpose. I made everything before I knew who I would get. Do you think no really means no? Hopefully it's not wrong to hope there's some wiggle room there!

Want to see what I'm sending? Here's a taste ...

Those aren't actually *quite* as primary as they might look ...

Packed Up

All packed up ... and heading to Arizona!

Ready To Ship

I'm certainly excited to hear what she thinks of her soup and to see what I get to work with in exchange! Are you excited to see what we'll make? I hope so! I know I am! :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm sure she'll love it! I still haven't heard from my partner yet.....

    1. Oh Lori, how frustrating! Have you e-mailed Lori A about it yet? Hopefully there's nothing terribly wrong ... but also hopefully they have a very good reason! I wish you the best of luck with that! This is supposed to be exciting and fun! If you don't get it sorted out, I'll send you a soup! :)
