Bead Soup

Elaine Ray had written a great post on the ABS about Bead Soup and that reminded me that I had a heaping helping of Bead Soup to share with you from May!

For Bead Week, I had a few friends over for a Bead Soup Party. I told everyone to bring a strand of beads for the soup in teal, bronze or copper. They also brought focal beads, a clasp, spacers and beading materials to put together their bracelets.

We poured all the beads into a tray and took turns scooping out a spoonful until it was divided up. It was so much fun to see how each person handled the same beads.

I'm looking forward to the next bead party, now to just stop making beads long enough to schedule that!
