Bead Soup Blog Hop!

Lori Anderson's 6th annual Bead Soup Blog Hop!  Lori outdid her self this year with 400 bead hopper's Thank-you for this great opportunity again to meet new designers.
    My bead partner Miranda Ackerley sent me a lot of beads and goodies. I made four designs and didn't put a dent in all the beads Miranda sent. They will speak to me at another  time. Miranda has a fun blog you can visit.

 The vintage button is so pretty in this piece.
 My lampwork bead and clasp matched so nicely with the turquoise sticks.

Miranda made the beautiful enamel pendant. It's pretty on both sides. 
Green blue tab beads, copper accents and my lampwork beads.

Thank-you Miranda for my soup!
