My garden has not produced a lot of vegetables this year. The zucchini are small not many string beans. Just getting tomatoes. Had to take a picture of this basket full of goodies.
    I am doing a 4 day show on a farm this week-end. Hope you all have a safe and Happy Labor Day.

Boy these were fun to make. Wavy disk's with ridge's. I am making a necklace for a friend. I kinda got carried a way with different colors and enamels and made more then I needed. So the sets will be up for sale on my Etsy shop. Enjoy and be creative

My Bead Soup Goodies

I have my Bead Soup Goodies I guess we can share the loot before the reveal in September. I hit the jack pot with lots of Vintja Components. A very special metal flower made by Natasha, she adds patina's to the metal giving a very unique look. You can see her designs on FB and she just started a blog n'sWhims.

My Bead Soup Loot

Can we show our beautiful goodie's before the reveal in September?

Bead Partner

Lori Anderson is once again hosting the Bead Soup Swap. This is my first time so I am very excited to be part of the fun. My partner Natasha Lutes is new to the blog world but not the jewelry world. She has a following on FB. She makes the most amazing Vintage Soda Pop bracelets, Necklaces with Filigree and gem stones. I can't wait to get my goodies. I have to finish a few beads and waiting for my silver shipment to get here so I can make my clasp. Mailing everything out on Friday hand made clasp or not. It would be nice to have the clasp handmade.

I made this bracelet some time ago with Gaea's Ceramic mini beads and chain and clasp from Shannon LeVart (Missficklemedia). It was to small for my wrist and everyone else that tried it on. I ordered more chain and clasp to match and made a necklace that I love.
