Also, here’s a quick photo of what I’ve been up to. I created a black bead soup by mixing several sizes of seed beads together in black, gold, and bronze. I don’t do this very often, but when I do, it’s always fun! My favourite beads in this mix are the black/gold Czech glass beads – I brought these home from the Czech Republic last year! As you can see, I started to bead around the outside edge of the shadow for my beaded military tank. I want to do a little more beadwork before I show you the entire piece, but here’s a sneek peak:

I think this bead mix will add some visual interest!
Have you ever made bead soup before?

  2. >Congratulations to Jackie! Bead soup, I've tried – I really have, but I can't get past my obsessive need to keep colors and shapes separate. I hope to graduate some day and be able to do it.
