Lunch for One: Soup is On!

Road trips are over. Summer guests have departed. Even Dan is away for the week-end, which leaves me completely on my own for three days.  Time to take a deep breath and dive into my bead soup from Evie and Beth McCord. Sketches have been drawn and beads gathered over the past few weeks. Since I’m slated for the Second Reveal of the 6th Bead Soup Blog Party next Saturday, it’s time to make my final decisions.

Beth and Evie were so generous in providing me with four (yes, four!) pendants, representing the classical elements: air, fire, earth and water.

I’m more than a little nervous in coming up with a design to highlight the brilliant colors and expert craftsmanship in these amazing focals! EB Bead and Metalworks’ designs have been treasured by many an artist – take a minute to click on the fabulous photos below and read the stories of just two that are sure to inspire!
