Yeah, I'm excited. :) So, my partner this round is Krafty Max, and you can find her awesome blog here. She does wonderful bead weaving. For reals, I'm in awe of her skill.
I want to send a big shout-out and lots of hugs to Lori Anderson, our fearless leader behind the Bead Soup Blog Party
Anywho! She sent me the most beautiful soup, with vintage focals, seed beads, clasps, and general awesomeness.

But then I had another idea--a cuff! So, I decided that herringbone (apparently, as I disovered at Bead Night tonight, it's my old standby! lol!) would be best, as its so versatile, and slinky! I just love herringbone. I wanted to bring in the colors in the beads, so I used a base of Sea Foam lined Light Topaz seed beads, with lines of Metallic Iris Teal, Pepper Red, and black. Then, I sewed one of the focal beads onto the cuff, and clustered Czech Firepolish around the bead.
