I received the following soup from my partner, Mary Howell Govaars. I loved what I received. I dug into it right away and by combining the soup with additions from my collection I was able to make quite a few pieces – Thank you Mary Govaars.
These are the clasp and focal Mary sent me.
Mary sent me some “bonus” beads, which I did utilize in my projects.
I had one white pearl and one blue pearl remaining from the BEAD SOUP Mary sent. I am pondering a ring?? But cannot include in my reveal because I have not made it yet and definitely was not done by the deadline. I was a busy girl and had a blast. The soup I received was perfect for my taste and abilities.
Thank you Mary Govaars for making this so fun and worthwhile.
Additionally I want to thank Lori Anderson for the opportunity to participate. I am heart broken that I was not able to participate by the deadline. I was so pleased with my soup, I dug into it and did not stop until I had nothing left.
My computer will not stay on. Luckily I had updated my external harddrive where I was able to locate most of my pictures. As best I can tell there are 2 – 3 pictures of projects I cannot locate. I will edit my reveal when I retake those pictures. I have not mastered photography yet and I do not have any editing software on my son’s old laptop (the computer I am now using).
My next post will be my reveal. I will be posting multiple pictures of most projects because I have not mastered photography skills, nor have I learned the best method of showing the best features of a project. I do quite well when I can edit and crop.
