Kalmbach Bead Soup Party

Ok, so here is for the last minute crunch!  Some time back I entered my name in hopes of getting to play with unknown beads as part of the Kalmbach Bead Soup Party.  Kalmbach Publishing was hosting this party in conjunction with the Bead Soup Party book being released.  They asked bead stores across the county to put together a little bead soup to share with random participants.  I was surprised when I received the bag of beads from them.  My beads came from the Beads by Powder Horn Trading Co. located in Kalispell, Montana.

Here are my beads:




Here are my finished pieces:
 A simple necklace - 

And a bracelet -





So what do you think?  I liked working with the beads, and they are not beads I would normally choose.

So in my house we cheer for Oklahoma(OU) and Oklahoma State(OSU) unless they play each other, then it is OU all the way :).  So I made these earrings to wear to work.  Which I have sold both of these!

Earrings Red & Purple

I really need to learn how to name pieces!  I love these earrings.  They are lightweight and yet have sound and movement!  I have done a similar pair in red and white for the OU Sooners colors, however I sold them the day I wore them and a second pair also.  When I get the second pair completed will upload new pictures.

Monster Buddies

I was given the chance to test out some decoupage mediums with out knowing what brands they were.  I made 5 Halloween  pendents.  One sample for each of the decoupage type, and one with Mod Podge.
