Bead Soup Blog Party is HERE!!!

Welcome Bead Soupers!
I'm Erin :)
This is my second ( and defiantly not my last) bead soup party.

First I want yo introduce you to my beady partner Jean A. Wells. Her etsy shop is full of amazing goodies. Jean's jewelry is colorful and unique. I am so glad we were pair up!

Here are the beads Jean sent me...


I had the beads for a month and I started and finished making the pieces on the 28th of Feb. lol When I looked at the beads I had no idea what to make with them. I didn't think any of my beads would look good with the ones Jean sent me. Thank the bead God I was wrong :)

I made a necklace, a bracelet and a pair of earrings....

the chain came from the leftovers I had from the last 
bead soup. 




Those green stone beads came from my stash.

I love how the BRACELET came out.


Now check out everyone else.... I will be :)

New Feature Coming Soon...

I have made so much jewelry in the past few years that hasn't sold that I thought about re vamping it . I guess I am the only one who likes the jewelry I make..:( although some pieces I can't believe I actually put up for sale. They are just so bad..lol
The other day I had this amazing idea! lol Instead of just taking the jewelry apart and re using the beads to make something else, I thought I would redesign the pieces I like so other people will like ( and buy ) them... that is the reason why I became a jewelry designer :)  

First up is this bracelet....
 This is before.. after will be coming soon !

Any ideas on what i should do to it? 

Its almost here!!!

The Bead Soup Blog party begins at midnight EST. So come on back to check out the 3 , yup 3, pieces I made.
Then check out everyone else:) We all worked hard and had a ton of fun. I cant wait til the next one!!
