Bare Branches Blog Hop

I was lucky enough to get in on Heather Power's blog hop called Bare Branches. She put together a Bead Soup kit featuring her gorgeous polymer clay beads. The theme was icy and wintery and the mix she sent was just gorgeous. It brought a feeling of loneliness with it and I felt that delicious, and self indulgent sense of bitter-sweetness I get every year at this time. I loved everything she sent!

In true Bead Soup fashion, I used most of the mix she sent and added a few extras from my own personal stash. I added some chain, a sewn silk ribbon, som Czech glass and a few brass filigree rounds. I had a lot personal stuff come up in the week between the time I got my beads and the deadline for the blog hop so my design isn't as creative as I'd have liked, but I am pretty satisfied with it.

You should hop on over to Heather's blog and check out her and the other participants' designs. It's always a treat to see what different people do with the same components! I want to thank Heather for putting together this mix of pretties and for offering them up at such a deal. I don't think it will be long before I go back to her etsy shop Humblebeads for more of her gorgeous beads!
