This has been in the planning for MONTHS
and I'm excited to finally fill you in!
If you've been a follower of this page or my main blog, Pretty Things, you're familiar with my Cup of Bead Soup project. For the past year, I've purchased beads, sight unseen, from various bead makers and tasked myself with creating things with components I didn't choose myself. It's been a fantastic way to push my design skills and break out of making the same old/same old. In essence, it's a one-woman-production of the Bead Soup Blog Party.
Starting next year, a bead maker will create
FOUR identical Cup of Bead Soup kits.
One for me...
three of YOU!
When it's Cup of Bead Soup time,
I'll write a post for interested participants to comment on.
Three lucky people will be chosen at random,
and these three designers will receive the same kit I do.
Each Cup of Bead Soup will have
a different price range, with all proceeds
going directly to the bead artist.
The four of us will then create a piece of jewelry
and have a mini-blog hop
to show what four people can do with the exact same beads.
Sound like fun?
Then stay tuned -- a blog button will appear soon
with the date of the first "pick me!" post.
The first bead contributor will be....
I hope you like this new format
and I can't wait to create with you!
