My Partner for the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party

Yes, I know this has been a long time coming, I am sure my partner Janice is wondering if I dropped off planet Earth. I am still around and still beading, but oh so little... My time has been spent with taxes, and I did get them done on time; and dealing with shortages of personnel in the work place, very tiresome and very stressful.  I am pleased to announce that life is slowly getting back to normal. And then I realised that the 8th Bead Soup Party blog hop is only a week away!

Let me now introduce you to my bead soup partner Janice. Janice hails from Canada and seems to be a wiz with Copper! Check out some very creative clasp she has formed with lamp work beads and Copper, she includes a tutorial as well.  I particularly like the one that incorporates a skull.

Janice sent me Bead Soup ingredients from bead paradise, no this is not the name of the shop, just a place where great beads come from.  A copper rose made by her, just gorgeous!  Some hammered copper hearts, what's not to love? and a length of copper chain.

The Spectacular Focal!
An equally gorgeous brass clasp in the shape of a leaf, plenty of ornate copper spacer beads and a bunch of copper leaves, again made by Janice. She does some wonderful work with copper.

Lovely leaves!
And that is not all, some great blue and green turquoise beads, including two beautifully carved pill box beads.

Love the colors!

Now the pressure is not to do these great soup beads justice.  

See you next week at the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party blog hop.!

Regina you received wonderful copper components. You are right Janice's work is beautiful. Those carved turquoise pillbox beads are awesome. Looking forward to the reveal and seeing what you make.

Janice said...

I'm glad you like your mix Regina. The components I made were specifically done for you. I can't wait to see what you create!
