The August 11 reveal date for group 2 of Lori Anderson’s 6th Bead Soup Blog Party has passed. I was blown away by all of the outstanding work I saw as I hopped from blog to blog. Lori put together the map below to show where all 400 blog party participants live. There are more detailed breakdowns on her blog.
Look at what my partner Kristen Latimer made with the beads I sent to her
I don’t think my beads and clasp were the easiest to work with. Kristen’s jewelry seems more delicate than a lot of mine and the clasp I sent was pretty big. And I could never figure out what to do with those minty vintage curved bugle beads. Kristen found a way to integrate her crystals and smaller beads with mine and made a a very attractive set of earrings and a bracelet that anyone would be pleased to wear.
On another topic, the Philadelphia Polymer Clay Guild (of which I am a member) has started a YouTube channel and we intend to fill it with playlists of high quality tutorials with videos we make ourselves.
So, here is the interview with Jana Roberts Benzon.
And finally, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. That’s right: It’s Beadfest Philadelphia time. Don’t miss it.
