6th Bead Soup Party!

This will be my second time participating in this swap and for this round Lori Anderson of Pretty Things has paired me up with Dee Elgie of Cherry Obsidia!  Dee lives in England and is primarily a lampworker.  You can see some of her creations here on her facebook page.  I went completely nuts with the like button!   She's got a fanciful dark side that I LOVE  - take a peek at her lampwork doll!  I also love her sense of whimsy and her use of color!

Speaking of color, I asked Dee to tell me what colors she likes and she told me to think of the rainbow.  I should have guessed that would have been her answer after viewing her work!

I went out to the store thinking rainbows, rainbows and got drawn in a completely different direction, I saw these sparkly vintage "things" (that's a tease for you Dee!) and then they started speaking to me and jumped right in my hand!   When I got home I looked at my purchases and thought, there's no rainbow.  I hopped on Etsy to try and find some more pieces to add to her soup to make a rainbow and, squirrel.......

Well, I adore everything I have sent for, but I'm once again not seeing a rainbow!  I will continue to go through my personal stash to pull fun bits and bobs until all the other packages arrive in the mail, hopefully today!  I'll take some pictures and then get the soup on it's way.

Did I mention that at the store and on Etsy I purchased one for me and one for Dee?    Let the creative juices flow, happy beading y'all!
