Bead Soup Blog Hop`

WOW  I can not believe its time to share, seems like I just got my soup! Seems like life just fills the days to the brim! That is obvious by my posts, or lack of!  I have so enjoyed the swaps but I am beginning to wonder if I am really a blogger. I really want to try,  but   well  no excuses,  if there is a program where i can just talk and my posts get typed  well  That I can do!!  :)   Now on to my soup. I have been in a cord/fiber craze lately,  so I decided to keep going and do it with my soup!  First a picture of my soup from my fabulous partner  Christine Stonefield  of

With 2 great choices as focal I used the polymer as my focal, measured what I thought would be enough cord and took off.  With no real plan I knew 3 things,  the focal was the center, the clasp off set,  and the silk would make its own bead (mixed with wire). The bracelet was a little more planned,  I did plan on using the cool wood beads in that one,  but they just did not lay the way I wanted them to!  Blue has not been  one of my favorite colors, but Its a strong color I have received in lots of swaps so I guess there is a force getting me to use it. I have given most of my finished blue pieces to my daughter in law,  but this one.. Its mine, even  bought a shirt to go with it,  and have already worn it! (sorry Krystal!) so thanks for reading this far and enjoy the hop!!
