Bead Soup Reveal

I'm so excited to be able to post my bead soup reveal. I will preface this that this post will not be the best post as I'm in a Tim Horton's coffee shop using their Internet connection as I've just moved from my apartment of 20 years... yikes!! Will have to post about that later..

My Partner Cynthia at Created Treasures ~~Created Treasures Blog~~  sent me some lovely soup ingredients.....

Soup Ingredients

Tasty eh?!
My Main Piece with my focal-- had some wrapping and chain work...

Here's a close up of the pretty silver closure my partner sent me..

The neat thing is I sent my Partner a similar focal bead and we never talked about what we were sending... and we were on the same page of ingredients.
One small pair of simple earrings!

My First attempt at working with memory wire..

Loved the pretty Blue Beads and added more from my blue ingredients....

THANKS to my partner Cynthia and Lori Anderson at
I will add a list of participants as soon as I get my computer working at home.. Cant Wait to check out all the lovely creations!!
