BEAD SOUP BLOG PARTY REVEAL IS HERE

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. Come on in sit a spell and have a look around. My name is Jacqueline Marchant but all my fam. and friends call me Jackie. I have been designing jewelry for a little over ten years. I don't consider myself an expert I still have so much I want to learn. Seems like I learn new things everyday. This is my first Bead Soup Blog Party to be a part of thanks to Lori Anderson. My partners name is Linda Anderson. Linda is very passionate about making her handmade one of a kind jewelry. She loves to work with Swarovski, Peciosa, Pearls, Mookaite and Filigree. Linda does sell her Jewelry on Etsy at the following link, Linda is a very kind hearted and giving person. She donates a portion of her sells to charities. So be sure to check her shop out. As for the soup I sent to Linda , well my goofy self forgot to take pictures of it before I mailed it so you will have to go to Linda's blog to see what I sent. But I did however take pictures of the amazing Bead Soup Linda sent me and . In this soup you see white mother of pearl curly beads, Satiny Purple acrylic beads, a Beautiful 32 X 24 faceted Oval Pendant. a very pretty silver toggle clasp, and some very sparkly round glitzy glamorous beads. All of this combined made a very colorful soup. I had the best time creating my pieces . I added some of my own stash with the soup and this is what I came up with. I however am not a great photographer hince the repetitive pics . Hope you liked what I came up with I had a blast doing it all....bye for now and Happy beading to you one and all
