Get your soup bowls ready

For this year's 7th Bead Soup Blog Hop I have been paired with the amazing Leah Curtis, a fellow Brit and tribal warrior: check out her blog
She is a polymer clay artisan has her own etsy shop

This is the soup I sent, there was I admit much nashing of teeth and wailing as I waved goodbye to a couple of beads by Numinosity ,a ScorchedEarthonEtsy pendant, an Angel Whisperer owl pendant and a craft bead ceramic feather, but I knew they're were going to eager hands and you've got to spread the love....sniff...sob..

Also I made some etched copper charms with guilder's paste ( I'll be eating this next!), button headpins, try these they're great fun to make and bead wrapped hook clasps.

But here's the best bit, this is what I got in return..

I'm nuts about the rich colours, can you see that adorable little bird, and these goldstone flowers, plus tiger eye.
Warning next photo might lead to feelings of envy....check this major cute bunny

And 18th century clay pipes, vintage lucite, mop, pendant and...lampwork from Tan Grey

So I will be busy thinking up my creations and  I will also be busy with writing a little article about a couple of my pieces for Belle Armoire Jewellery Magazine...beyond thrilled to have that opportunity. Also best wishes to Kim who is also writing up her article too.

Have a great weekend everyone x
