How does it work? Lori pairs up participants, then we raid our bead stashes and send each other ingredients for soup that includes a focal bead, a clasp, and accent beads. I have been partnered with Susan Nelson Bowie of Stones and Bones Jewelry Design. Susan creates beautiful pieces showcasing her love of nature, and are filled with her beautiful spirit.

Too exciting! New beads, new challenge, and new friends...
