Bead Soup Blog Party 7 and Giveaway News

Happy Bead Soup 7 Blog Party! 
This is my yummy soup I received from my partner
I loved every last bead she sent!

 So  I set off to beating, sawing ,hammering, torching, aging, soldering, and 
beating some more!
I darkened up the cool toggle clasp just a wee bit. 
I absolutely loved the blown glass bead on the antique key focal Jennifer sent me in
her soup, and
wanted try to do it justice.
I started out attempting to use whole soup,as I loved it all . But, then pulled back
some and used some of the yummy green beads, toggle, my fav blown key bead, and
parted reluctantly with 2 of the gorgeous blown glass head pins she sent :)
I just loved the beautiful blown glass headpins that she made, and used them
for the drops. (I am hoarding the rest of these cool head pins right now , as I really do  love 
just looking at and admiring them  them in my studio)
This piece started out as part of a  36" LONG, brass sheet metal I just received from Indian Jewelers Supply. Not Rio Grande I know . I do adore Rio, but I was grinning ear to ear when that HUGE LONG box of metal goodness showed up at my door let me tell ya! If I only had a camera to show you it took me 20 full minutes to brake into that box! They had it sealed up tighter than Fort Knox!
Rio has much more toys to play with  though, they will always be my fav supplier :)
 I have  ideas in the wings for the rest of the gorgeous goodies in my soup .
They are projects still to come.

 4 new patterns to play with just posted on my Etsy!

Hope you enjoyed my Soup. I will be having fun visiting all my fellow soupers :)
