Cup of Bead Soup Reveal Day!

YAY! It's finally here! The reveal day for the Cup of Bead Soup that the lovely Lori Anderson gave away on her blog. Here's the awesome fun things I made with the soup I won. I am so excited to be participating, and I thoroughly enjoyed working with these vintage lucite beads. It's definitely different from my normal fare.

Antique bronze wire, glass pearls, gold plated spacers, brass coins, and lucite.
Fancy hook clasp.

Lucite, glass, and seed beads.
Lucite and chandelier chain earrings.
Lucite, glass pearl, and copper.

And believe it or not, I still have a couple more things to finish up on. So stay tuned for a second helping of Soup! ♥

Much love,


  1. You did a marvelous job! The beads you used for earrings are some of the ones I saved aside to make earrings later (great minds, etc). I love the first necklace particularly and everything is very inventive. Thanks for participating!

  2. You did an amazing job! You made a smorgasbord out of a simple cup of soup. Beautiful, fun, elegant... it's all there, something for everyone's sense of style. I can tell you had fun!

  3. I love the variety of projects you were able to create.

  4. Wow that's a lot of jewelry from one soup. I like them all.

  5. Boy, did you make your soup go a long way! Everything is beautiful...I especially like your first necklace! Great job!

  6. Great job! Love everything you made with this soup!

  7. Amazing pieces! So different yet all beautiful.
