It's that time. The Bead Soup Blog Party. I've gotten the name of my partner who lives in New Mexico, all the way across America. She is Jean Peter! For those in the beading world, this woman has been making jewelry for years. She is a mega talent whose work is inspired and well, for me, a little intimidating.
For those who are interested, you can see some of her incredible work at her Facebook page at Eclectic Avenue. Just look for the 'photo' box and click on it, and then click on one of the pictures to see a larger slideshow. Amazing!
Her blog address is also Eclectic Avenue, where she shares wonderful stories about her family and beading and life. One thing we found out right away is that we are both big supporters of the Beads of Courage. She is blessed with a Grandson who, sadly, has had multiple heart surgeries and is a fighting giant and has a very, very long strand of beads. His struggle, from the length of his chain, is epic, and yet this very brave little boy keeps on keeping on. You can read about their story on her recent blog article.
It will be fun to see how we decide to challenge each other, and we have been given the second reveal date of April 6th, so mark your calendar and if you don't visit to see the soups, at least come back and see what is the creative endeavor between two relative strangers!
