When I missed signing up for the September 2011 Bead Soup Blog Party organized by extremely talented and creative jewelry artist Lori Anderson, I was very disappointment with myself to have forgotten to put a reminder. I wrote to Lori to include me to future parties and guess what she replied with...a package in the mail.
I couldn't believe my luck when I opened the package. Inside was a bead soup beautifully packed in a Lori Anderson Designs jewelry box with a personalized note from Lori...what else I could wish for after missing the sign up!
The bead soup included a handmade Chinook pendant, gold filled clasp and beads, purple pearls, Czech glass beads and oval wooden beads.
Thanks a ton Lori for the wonderful gift. Now my challenge is to come up with a beautiful design with the lovely beads I got.
