I interrupt our own "CHALLENGE: Designing Jewelry for Special Audiences" ...
...to make sure no one misses the "BEAD SOUP Blog Party" results that were announced today! I've been hearing about this on jewelry blogs for weeks now, but until looking at the swaps of beads and the amazing results, I truly had no idea what a marvelous event this is!
Here are the guidelines. A package for swapping might look something like what I've put together in these photos, although all I saw were significantly more elaborate and each must include a nice clasp.
I've only made it through 10 or so swaps today (that's 20 people's jewelry), so still have a lot to go, but some are SPLENDID and all are interesting, and there's something to be learned by looking at each of them!
- You probably want to start with Lori Anderson's page. She organizes the event. Lori Anderson's "Pretty Things"-- 4th Bead Soup Blog Party!
- Along with Lori's creations, one of the most lovely I've seen so far comes from "Silver Parrot!"
