Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!

Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party!
What is a Bead Soup Blog Party?

 Each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending the following:

~ A focal
~ A special clasp (not just a lobster claw)
~ Some coordinating spacers or beads

Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest, and choose to use the coordinating beads or not.

Here's what I made!


Thank you for stopping by Copper Penny Designs and seeing what I made for the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party, this was my first time participating and it has been so much fun.  I received some beautiful bead soup from my partner Maryse Thillen, of Glass Bead Art.  Maryse really souped me and I had many different options that I could choose from in order to make my soup.  I love Maryse's hearts and I couldn't resist using them in this recipe.  Maryse and I had a bit of a disappointment because of me, I didn't realize that Luxembourg is it's own country, I thought it was part of Germany so I included this in the mailing details and unfortunately Maryse has not received her bead soup from me.  I plan on still getting the soup to her so that she can still make something at a later time.  

When I was finishing up my design and going to put the adorable sterling silver butterfly clasp that Maryse sent me it broke so I needed to improvise with something I had, it still has butterflies on it in honor of the one that Maryse sent to me.


I am really looking forward to making my way through all of your blogs, I hope you like what you see today and find some great inspiration and new friends.  I know I will, I have made some new friends since this has all started, this is such a lovely community of people.  


I want to especially thank Lori Anderson of Pretty Things for all of her tireless work on the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party, we had 210 participates and Lori had to spend an great deal of time getting us all organized and setting up emails and accommodating such a large mailing list.  You are amazing Lori, thank you for being such a giving, caring person and letting us share in your world.

  4. Penny, you did a great job! I love copper anything! Thanks for letting us know about your partner. I will bookmark her site for a hopeful future reveal. Such is the risk in international mailings (my partner was in Germany so I was on pins and needles that we would each receive them)
    Enjoy the day!
