Bead Soup

Just a tease for the 6th
Bead Soup Party!

I'm taking part again in the fun Bead Soup Party, organized by the talented Lori Anderson, of Lori Anderson Designs, and 
Pretty Things blog. Lori puts her heart and soul in to this party, and there are over 400 participants, wow.  How does she do it?

This year I have a Bead Soup partner from Germany.  How cool is that?  I still haven't received her beads, nor her mine, but we are getting very anxious to see what the other sent!  Here is a little tease of what I sent to Kathrin Lembke. She wrote and told me she has a river that runs in front of her house, and another river near by, close to the North Sea.  Sounds like a fabulous and scenic place.  She says they have the biggest fruit growing areas in Germany and freshest fruit around. Wow, that is very cool. I am always so amazed at how well people speak English overseas, a good lesson for we Americans.

I hope she likes what I sent.  She is a talented glass artist, and doesn't use vintage in her work, so this was a challenge for me.  So we shall see what she does with the goodies.

The minute I receive her goodies, I will post them.

Take a look at Lori's blog post here, and see the list of all the participants, and you can spend the day blog hopping.  My reveal isn't until August 25th though, so you won't see what I made with Kathrin's goodies until then!



AND.... if you are interested in learning more about torches, lighting them, filling them, this is a perfect class for you.  My Overcoming the Fear of Fire class starts tomorrow!  At Artful Gathering, and you can see more about my class and many other amazing classes here:



This video is a little over an hour long, and goes over many of the techniques you can accomplish with a mixed gas torch, a micro butane torch and a power butane torch.  I tried to make this a very informative film for beginners, remembering what I knew when I started.  Nothing!

So take a look at the promo, and if you are interested, you can sign up now, or up to two weeks from now, then registration will be closed.  I will be available for six weeks to help and answer any questions I can along the way.

Happy creating everyone!  
Hugs,

Riki
