Bead Sooooups

I received this pile of gorgeous from my BSBP partner,
the super skilled Sherri Stokey of Knot Just Macrame.
The first best thing about having her as a partner?
I've been stalking her on FB for months
as I absolutely adore her work.

The next best thing?
Look at those earrings she sent me.
Don't be jealous.
Well, ok, you can be a little jealous.
I would be.

The third best thing?
This color combination.
I've been in the seed beading game for 15 years,
and I can honestly say I have never before
worked in these combined hues.
My girl Sherri threw down the gauntlet,
and all I can say is
Challenge Accepted
because Gorgeous!

Here's the soup I sent:
I actually put the soup together and then made the focal
to match the lampwork rounds and dalmation jasper nuggets
because Unique!

After I found out Sherri was my partner
I made a funky aquatic set
just for her
because Fun!

Lastly I noticed the czech buttons she uses fairly often
and since I have duplicates of several
I tossed in a few of those also
because Present!

I'm going to set aside an entire Sunday to play with
my Sherri treasures, and this time I'm going to do it
before my reveal date
because Rules!



  1. Wowowowowow I AM jealous on both ends. The Sherri treasures are just my colors and the beads are awesome. Yeah the earrings too.
    Your set is to amazing. The colors the shapes and all those buttons. I want them. LOL
    Have fun playing and creating

  2. You are too funny! I also have been stalking Sherri. I love her stuff. You guys did a great swap. I love the presents!! Have fun with this, ok?

  3. Beautiful soups! Can't wait to see what you both make!!!
