Bead Soup Blog Party – Meet my Partner

posted in: Miscellaneous | 2

It is time for Lori Anderson’s Bead Soup Party for 2013. This year’s event
has over 500 jewelry artists from around the world. The largest Bead Soup Party yet.  I am thrilled to be a part of this party again this year.  

Each year Lori Anderson undertakes this massive project and spends countless
hours matching up partners, arranging schedules, sending out emails to all the participants and Lori does an awesome job.  She is truly the queen of Bead Soup Parties and has earned a reputation this event.

This year I am going to be participating in the second reveal on April 6th.  
My schedule this spring has been quite hectic trying to get things arranged
around the events of my three children.

My partner this year is Laura Guenther of Blue Antiquities.  Laura was my partner last year and my a slight twist of fate I again was matched up with Laura.  

I became acquainted with Laura in last years Bead Soup Party.  It was the first party for both of us and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Laura.  Laura lives in Georgia with her husband and three children.  Georgia is a favorite state of mine as all three of my children have attended the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah Georgia and my husband and I have spent many years visiting that city and somehow having a partner in that same state give me a connection.  

Laura is a very talented artist.  She does some fantastic enamel work and has recently started using mica in her work. She has done some some great pieces using this medium.  I am always impressed with Laura’s talent.  Laura has an Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/blueantiquities where she sells her beautiful artwork, she does art shows, and her packaging for her jewelry is as awesome as the jewelry itself.  She is also a published artist having her work published in the most recent Winter Issue of Belle Armoire.

Here is just a sampling of Laura’s work:



I can’t wait to see what Laura is going to do with her soup again this year and I look forward to working with her.  Come back soon to see the soups received and sent.
