After not being lucky enough to be chosen to participate in the bead soup blog party, I decided I would do my own “bead side salad”. I already had some ideas about what I would be sending out and I had intended to use these myself to be completed by the bead soup date. Amazingly when I visited my mom she gave me a bumper lot of mixed beads and broken necklaces. Voilà! Instant Bead Salad!

So far my challenge is the opposite of the Bead Soup – there’s no obvious focal (the cabs are currently brooches) and no interesting clasp – but the whole point is that it’s a CHALLENGE. Come back on 3 March to see how I get on…
