Today is Bead Soup Blog Party Day!

It's finally here!! I'm thrilled to take part in the biggest bead soup blog party ever. Over 300 bloggers have swapped beads, focals and clasps across the world to be involved in this amazing blog party organised by the incredibly talented Lori Anderson of Pretty Things blog.

My partner is Ann Rishell of My Critical Eye blog. Be sure to visit Ann's blog to see the bead parcel i sent to her. These are the gorgeous beads and components that she sent to me.

Ann sent me so many beautiful items I couldn't use them all! I am especially loving the turqouise beads and the coral sari ribbon and focal - turquoise and coral are my favourites right now. I added some coral czech glass beads from my own bead collection to complement the soup, Here are the two necklaces that I made:
