Bead Soup...Ready to Serve Up!

It that time of year again when beads are  gathered, wrapped and posted all over the world....My partner this year is Laurie Hanna.   This focal was handcrafted by Laurie and I feel so fortunate to have had the pleasure in working with it.
SO.......
here's the soup!















A very special thanks to Lori for making this huge 3 part blog hop for all of us.
She rocks!!!

Now sit back and start hopping!

  46. Your work is so BEAUTIFUL and creative....we just got in from a HUGE garage sale at our local fairgrounds & my hubby is getting geared up to start making wind chimes & I want him to have the right tools to do this....would you mind recommending what he should use so he doesn't hurt himself or get frustrated? He WILL wear goggles, we don't want him to get metal in his eyes....but to cut the silverware & drill it & other metals what do you use? And for flattening silverware- just a regular hammer? Thanks for your advice, I added your blog to my favorites on my blog....want to follow you!
