[Bead Soup] What's Cooking?

Hello friends!
It's time for another Bead Soup Blog Party over at Ms. Lori Anderson's BLOG.  There were over 400 participants and I'm thrilled to be part of the third reveal on August 25.  

This is my second BSBP and I have a new partner / friend. She is Sonya Stille of Dreamin' of Beads / SAS Jewelry.  Sonya makes beautiful beaded necklaces such as this piece with a focal made from
 polymer clay.  I love how she made the intricate beaded design using peyote stitch.  
How I wish I had the patience required in making such beautiful pieces of art in jewelry.  
Head over to Sonya's BLOG to see more of her designs.

Here's Sonya's Bead Soup ingredients ready to be mailed.  
Gave her one of my paper quilled flowers and a polymer clay heart.

The party required us to give a focal piece and a clasp.  I made the focal using polymer clay using a combination of stamping and mica techniques.  Her soup also included coordinating beads
 (stones, crystals and glass beads) and metal findings.

I am eager to see what she will cook with these.
See you soon!
 Michelle  ♥
