Yeah, I got my Bead Soup!

My bead soup partner is Debbie Goering from Prairie Emporium. I love her jewelry and I just love the 
 beads she sent me,

Now I just hope she likes the beads I sent her :-). Here is another close up.

The mix in the first picture is handmade by her, Copper, Brass and Sterling Silver. Isn't that pendant just awesome? The second picture shows a Czeck glass bead mix, and the third some pearls. The fourth one is a copper chain and ring that she patinaed and sealed with wax, and a sterling silver toggle clasp. Here is some of her work.
This is how she sent me these great treats, wrapped in a hand painted fabric, makes me feel bad I just put my beads in a little plastic zipper bag.  It's my first party, I know more the second one. I wasn't sure what to expect. This is definitely something I would do again!


  1. Carola, we just got back from TX at 2:00 am today and I had a pkg from you, I love your beads!!! Will try to get pictures and post tomorrow. You are a great partner; it will be so much fun working with your beads.

  2. Thank You Debbie, I am glad you like them, I wasn't sure how many beads to send.
    I hope you had a good time :-)

  3. The soup looks delicious. I bet what you make with it will be gorgeous. I can't wait for our reveal!

  4. Very beautiful soup!! Her work is lovely. :3

    And, don't feel bad, I did the same thing you did. XD It's logical that one would be a bit pampering toward one's partner, but I just didn't think of it for this first bead swap. Next time will be better. :)

  5. Hi Carola - What a great and tasty bead mix! Especially love the metal Hope pendant. Looking forward to seeing what you whip up. :) Lisa
