This is the finished bracelet that I made using the beads from my partner Christa Murphy. I just love how it turned out! It is free form peyote. This is my second free form piece. The colors are the best. I have named it Citrus Blast as it reminds me of orange juice, and lemon aide and limeaide. It is a blast to wear!!!! I can only thanks Crista for sending me wonderful beads to choose from. I also got a couple cabs from her that I plan to use to try my hand at beadembroidery with. I have never done that before and am looking forward to the challenge. I also am looking forward to making a longer necklace with some nuggets and waxed cord and knotting. I will post those when I get them done.
Christa has been kind enough to send me 200 crosses to use on my mission project that is due very soon. I will get thoses pics up on line as soon as I can and tell you more about our new venture doing this. It has been very exciting as well. Chris and I have made a friend for life- each other and both are very greatful for this chance to be a part of this "Party".

Ok so I have not been so good at the blogging end of this- but I have to tell you that I am having a great time with my new friend and partner in the Bead Soup Blog Party that is now in High gear!!! I hope you are getting a chance to check some other sights out- I am having some technical problems and hope to get my pics up tomorrow- but I absolutely LOVE what I have created with my new stash of beads. Not only have I made a new bracelet but my partner Christa Murphy, has inspired me to try bead embroidery. I have that glued down and need to get going on that. I have gotten side tracked because Chris and I are doing a venture together. I will tell you more about it later but a hint is- we are working on a project to send 200 necklaces to Peru. This bead soup exchange and my new friendship is by far the most fun I have had with something in a long time. I am so glad I joined. I hope to see you at the party tomorrow. Until then...................................
