Kalmbach Bead Soup Party

I signed up to participate in the Kalmbach bead soup party.  They mailed each of us out a package of bead soup from different bead retailers.  Mine was from Beadalotta in Fond du Lac.  Here is what they sent me:
 I just LOVE the colors in this soup!!  The focal is from Earthenwood Studio.  The green and brown beads are Czech glass, the coral beads are shell pearls, and the blue are Czech pressed glass. 

I really have a thing for long necklaces lately.  I used up almost all the beads in my soup, and added leather cord from my stash.  I put the clasp on the side because it was too pretty to get stuck in the back.  
Thank you Kalmbach for hosting this fun event and to Beadalotta for donating my soup! 

You can see what everyone else created here.


  1. Very creative and GORGEOUS! I don't know how you did it, but it looks fabulous!

  2. Hi, Kim! I love your necklace. That Earthenwood Studio focal is beautiful. My bead soup was from Beadalotta also!

  3. Thanks Kim for stopping by and for your sweet congratulations! Oh, and by the way, lovely piece. I love the layered look!
