Taa daaa! Soup is ready and just in time for breakfast . In other words its 2 AM on reveal day & I am finished.
I didn't think I was going to get done at all. It has been one of those days. But I pushed through like a beady super hero.
I overcame the fact that my studio was disassembled this morning and is in random boxes all over my house. It's a long story involving a friend a table and a fire, but that's something I'll save for later. It was bad planning on my part, but things happen when they happen.
So without further ado, here is the soup!
I had the most splendid ingredients from my partner Jen Judd, so fresh and sweet.
First I separated the ingredients into 3 parts.
I saw 3 complete meals in this assortment.
The elegant and simple glass focal bead by Donna Millard just knocked my socks off. I was immediately excited by the possibilities. I picked the beads that best complimented it and began my plan.
Well, nothing ever goes as planned. Not for me anyway! I had hidden most of my beading wire and tools in one of the random boxes that was formally know as my studio.
While I panicked and started tearing through things in boxes I pulled out my recycled sari silk ribbon. Of course I had to stop and be distracted by its silky beauty and it occurred to me that this sari silk was just what the soup needed. So, plan B was born.
I loved the way the silk grounded the entire design and the gold shimmer pulled together the purples and greens of the beads. It's that organic feeling that I was looking for.
But what to do with the left overs?
Jen sent me such a generous assortment of beads that I was inspired to make 2 more projects.
Stay tuned for the next chapter, it might bead meatloaf monday or maybe bead tuna casserole tuesday.
I have two more projects up my sleeve and will reveal them in the week ahead.
So save room & don't fill up on sweets.
