Bead Soup Blog Hop Hoarders Edition 2017

The Bead Soup Blog Hop is back in action!!  So thankful that Lori Anderson is back in the saddle again and feeling up to cooking up a big pot of soup for all of us. Please check out her blog for her latest creations!http://www.prettythingsblog.com/.

Back in February we were matched up with our exchange partners.  My partner is Jasvanti Patel. You can visit her blog right here:http://jewelrybyjasvanti.blogspot.com/.

This year was a special edition because we were required to send a focal that was special to us. I received a beautiful pink Druzy that came from Brazil and a stunning glass heart from Venice. Being that I could not choose between them I created with both of them! I was also blessed with lots of other beads to play with as well....I was certainly spoiled. Its been a rough few months around her so I have not played with as much as I wanted to. I will update this post when I can fully focus on creativity. 

In the meanwhile please enjoy all of the creativity from all of the participants. The link to everyone is below.
