Lori Anderson's July Cup of Bead Soup!

Lori Anderson ~ artist, blogger, and jewelry designer of  Pretty Things hosts a Cup of Bead Soup each month.  What's a Cup of Bead Soup?  Every month a different bead artist sends Lori a batch of beads, and Lori takes the ingredients she receives, creates fabulous finished jewelry pieces ~ and blogs about her techniques, thought processes, and obstacles she meets along the way.
For the month of July, I'm excited to say Lori will be using some of my clay pendants and beads in her creations!  To celebrate summer, I sent Lori some of my new stoneware beach theme elements featuring starfish, waves and Atlantic auger shells.
I've also included a blue earthenware floral pendant with matching beads in Lori's soup mix ~
 I can't wait to see what Lori creates with my clay components! Please join me in observing Lori's creative process with some help from her son Zack, as she will be posting periodically throughout the month on her blog:


  1. Those are gorgeous beads, focals and pendants. I love your work. And I know Lori will do them justice. She never ceases to amaze me at what she comes up with.

  2. Thanks so much ~ and I agree, I'm always amazed by Lori's talent as well. Really looking forward to seeing what she does! :)

  3. The pendants are great, just got back from Outer Banks. Love the colors.
