Sundays with Cindy: What's Cooking in the Bead Soup Kitchen?

Last week, I shared a teaser of the beads I sent to my Bead Soup Partner, Cat. This week, I thought I'd share the ingredients I cooked up in my Bead Soup kitchen....

All good Bead Soups start with your favorites. My favorite color is red so the red glass rods were the first ingredient I chose.  I wanted to cook up high contrast, so my next ingredients were turquoise and ivory. The heart motif on the beads signifies a Bead Soup made from the heart. Finally,  I made a toggle of copper rolled through my new favorite toy...errrr...tool, the rolling mill and paired it with one of my double dips in turquoise and red. Twenty gauge copper wire was added to the mix so Cat could fashion jump rings or links if she wanted. A truly yummy set of Bead Soup ingredients if I do say so myself!

Hope you enjoyed the peek into the Bead Soup kitchen! Now let's take a peek into the Bead Bloggers's busy lives by clicking on their links and see what they've been up to this week! Jewelrymaking

Lovely soup... what does the copper 'washer' say?


Cindy Gimbrone said...

Thanks Jenni! I was a wire wrapper before a beadmaker so wire is always in the back of my head!
