SIGN UPS for Cup of Bead Soup with Nan Emmett of Spirited Earth



If you've been a follower of my blog, you're familiar with my Cup of Bead Soup project.  For the past year, I've purchased beads, sight unseen, from various bead makers and tasked myself with creating things with components I didn't choose myself.  It's been a fantastic way to push my design skills and break out of making the same old/same old.  In essence, it's a one-woman-production of the Bead Soup Blog Party.


Now it's your turn to join me!

Three lucky people will be chosen at random,
and these three designers will receive the same kit I do.



Aren't these wonderful?
Perfect for spring heading into summer jewelry designs.

The cost of this kit will be
$20 (not including shipping)
(which is actually below her cost,
and all the money goes to Nan)

After the mini-hop on May 12th,
Nan will be offering 15 limited edition sets
in her shop, Spirited Earth.


Here's how it goes:

1) Leave a comment
2) Make sure there's a way to contact you!!!!


Three people will be chosen at random
on Thursday, April 12th.


Good luck, and spread the word!
Let's support handmade!
