Here we are blog hop day. I have two very different pots of soup, so here goes.
My first partner Claire Maunsell of Quebec. Here is here link to her blog called Stillpoints. Please stop by and see what she was able to cook up with the soup ingredients I sent her. http://stillpointworks.blogspot.com/

|A combo of Claire's designs and Miss Fickle Media blue flower|
On the second design I had some more Miss Fickle Media chain and clasp in my stash so I was thrilled. I also added a piece of Roman glass, and antique agate, copper glass, little horn disks and an amazing blue bell from Miss Fickle Media to help the focal come alive.
I still have several pieces left including the absolutely gorgeous large focal and another clasp. I will find another day to create with those ingredients and I thank Claire for her amazing designs and generosity.
Now how could I get so lucky to receive two totally different soups? See me blog on September 14 for that story.
Cathie Carroll sent me a beautiful little treasure box full of pearls, and antique clasp, and ceramics. Hop over to her blog at www.cathiecarroll.com
This bracelet called Golden Elegance uses her antique button clasp, speckled ceramic bead by Joanna Matuszczk and Mexican pearl and I collected more lovely beads to make this a very pretty elegant bracelet.
I designed this feminine necklace by adding additional pearls, french ribbon and vintage chain. I designed it to be worn on both sides of this gorgeous raku focal by artist Vicki Love.
The little connector with the green pearls woven in were also in my treasure box.
I want thank both ladies. I am really happy with the results and even though I did feel a little stressed with such short time to design I truly hope I have posted this correctly. I also want to Lori for putting this on and helping me to be sure I had my soup to work with.
Today my husband Michael and I will be at Benicia Art and Craft show with my jewelry and his fine art photography. My Etsy shop will be closed until Sunday morning and I hope to start blog hopping beginning on Sunday. Happy blog day everyone and thank you for stopping by. I would love to meet you and appreciate your time.
