7th Bead Soup Blog Party 3rd Reveal Time!

Welcome to Lisa's Clay Happenings! Today, over 200 people (out of a total of 541) will show you what happens when beaders swap their stash. We've been paired up for Lori Anderson's 7th Bead Soup Blog Party to swap a focal, clasp and beads, then blog about our creations made with the pieces received from our partners.

I immediately fell in love with the bead mix my partner Be ttysent me. She chose a fabulous pounded copper star toggle, and she crafted a really sweet whimsical lampwork fish focal just for me! The gorgeous bead variety Betty sent included leopard spotted barrels, tiger striped polymer tubes, some very cool wooden beads and Kazuri ceramic beads made in Africa, which Betty got during her last visit.  She also included some other tribal treasures and some silk cord which was perfect for stringing up this mix!
