Sign Ups for Cup of Bead Soup with Lea Avroch

If you've been a follower of my blog, 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.  

But this year, I changed things up.

Now, three lucky people will be chosen at random, and these three designers will receive the same bead I do.  We'll make our pieces and have a mini-blog hop on June 30th.

Lea Avroch is this month's Cup of Bead Soup contributor.  She's a fabulous lampwork artist and she's created a gorgeous focal bead for us.  It's made with silver glass (expensive and touchy to use so I haven't gotten the nerve to use it yet!) with murrini and beautiful patterning.  For this Cup of Bead Soup, you'll receive this focal -- and you use your EXISTING STASH to make something.
