I recently learned that Lori Anderson of Pretty Things is having a Bead Soup Party. It's going to be fun! Participants get paired with another party goer and they create and swap a "kit" made from a special focal bead, some coordinating beads, and a special clasp, and then we make a special piece of jewelry from the kit. I can't wait to see what everyone creates. More information is available at Lori's blog.
