Bead Soup...Kris Lanae Binsfeld

This is my 5th Bead Soup Blog Party and one my favorite things about the Bead Soup Blog Party  is meeting new jewelry designers and seeing new styles of jewelry.  I am always amazed at the variety of designs. My other favorite part of BSBP is our fearless leader Lori Anderson.  Lori makes BSBP run so well..bringing  together  a talented group of creatives from across the globe.

I am paired with Kris Lanae Binsfeld of Cherish Designs.

Kris is a hockey mom of 3 living in Minnesota. Kris creates very cool jewelry with steel wire and her designs are carried by Demdaco/Silvestri and pressure to send a good soup to Kris, lol.

Anyway, Kris  had a chance to visit Tuscon this year for the first time and picked up some items for my soup, yippee!!

Kris was very generous and made one of her signature focals for me as well as giving 2 clasps to choose from.  I am thrilled to be creating with the soup that Kris created.

Below is a picture of most of the soup I sent, I forgot to take a picture of the final soup as I decided what to include. I included a focal that I made using an HMB Studio lampwork bead and a clasp to match and also sent the Fly pendant  by Barbara Bechtel of Second Surf Studio.    Kris has great pictures of my soup as well as  a write up on her blog.

The our Bead Soup Reveal will be March 30, 2013, come back to see what we create.
