Bead Soup Arrived!!

My bead soup arrived safe and sound from Sweden, my partner Kristina Johansson was very generous, and definitely has challenged my creative spirit.  Kristina is a talented seed beader and sent some beautiful seed beads along.   The thing that has me thinking is the lovely hand dyed silk carrier rod, there are so many lovely colors and it compliments the beads that Kristina sent me so very nicely.  Also a lovely photo of Birgit Nilsson that you can see in the photo with my soup.

Here is what I sent my partner, Kristina.

The Bead Soup Blog Party reveal is March 3rd, please check out all the wonderful artists who will be participating on that day!!!  It is always so much fun to see the lovely designs and pure talent.

Have a wonderful day!

Take care,


  1. I love the warm feeling of the beads. Nice soup!


  2. I have never seen a silk carrier is beautiful! Love the colors of both bead soups! Have fun!

  3. both soups have a comforting and earthy feel. can't wait to see you work your magic and create something beautiful!

  4. I'm glad to hear that the soup arrived safely. Hope you like it and will find it inspirational as well as challenging. It'll be interesting to see what you can do with the silk rod. I've got several, but am embarrassed to say that I've never really got around to using them yet...

    Birgit and Bertil were our neighbours and we know Gitte, who is the musuem manager, so we try to spread the word about our newest neighbour the Birgit Nilsson museum when we can.

    Have a great weekend!


    PS! I haven't had time to send the missing piece yet so it'll perhaps not make it in time for the party date, but it will be on its way in the near future. ;-)

  5. looks like both of you will have some fun creating some beautiful. Both are so different and awesome

  6. The carrier rod is unique, I've not seen anything like that in fiber before. Beautiful, should be fun to work with.

  7. Fun stuff on both sides. I can't wait to see what y'all make!!
