Earlier this month I learned that Lori Anderson was hosting a Bead Soup Blog Party. I have always wanted to be apart of one of these, but have never had the guts to actually join.I knew there were so many reasons I had to this time. I thought, 'what a great opportunity to push myself through some of the anxiety and self-doubt; A way to be more social and make new friends'. So, before I could stop myself, I submitted my information. There was no turning back now!
I received an email from Lori revealing who my partner would be...
*drum roll* ...Teri from Born to be Worn by S & T Creations!
This is a little sneak peek of what I sent to Teri:
On Saturday, I got the package from Teri:
I opened it as fast as humanly possible and pulled out the bubble wrapped bundle. It felt a little heavy, but I couldn't get a good look through all that plastic! As soon as I peeled back those bubbles, I started to laugh out loud at the contents. Teri had sent me the most beautiful, large Amazonite beads. Some of the very same gemstone I had sent to her! Great minds think alike!
These beads are stunning! The toggle is gorgeous! Gold findings are something I never work with and these gemstones are much larger than I typically use. It's just the right amount of unfamiliarity to make me work outside my comfort zone. Exactly what I was hoping for.
Thank you, Teri, for the perfect bead soup!
Finished jewelry will be revealed on Sept 17th.
