More Soup...Day 2 - My Reveal

Here's my "soup" all finished and ready to wear...I've been wearing it all week to tell you the truth :) Totally love everything about it. Lorelei is my swap partner this time around and she sent me some amazing goodies and in my favorite colors to boot!


I just cannot get enough of this clasp! Handmade clasp from Amanda Davie...


Polymer disc beads by Humble Beads...Jasper Coins...Teal Wood Discs...and handmade ceramic donut by Artisan Clay...



I have a pair of matching earrings in the works still but I'll be sure to post them as soon as they're ready :)


and wait until you see what she created with the beads and components I sent to her...WOW, not that I'm surprised, Lorelei's work knocks my socks off ...see for yourself!

Don't forget to swing by party central to get the full list of links to all the reveals, TONS of eyecandy and such an amazing and talented group of designers to check out. You won't be disappointed! You can find the list HERE
