I am so excited! The 5th Bead Soup Blog Party is coming soon. Thanks to Lori Anderson at Pretty Things Blog for organizing and managing this fabulous event! I am sorting through my bead stash in anticipation of the fun to come. Here are a few soup starters that I picked today. I included lampwork beads, ceramic beads, pewter, bronze, and sterling silver charms, gemstones, and czech glass. All of my favorite things!
