Etsy Finds -- The Bead Soup Blog Party Edition

It's hard to believe, but there are 399 participants for the 6th Bead Soup Blog Party!  This will be the first party to have THREE separate reveal dates -- July 28th, August 11th, and August 25th.  It's also the last summer party -- from now on, there will only be one BSBP a year, in the Jan/Feb time frame.


While entering everyone into groups on several spreadsheets, I visited dozens -- well, hundreds! -- of shops, and today I'm going to share a few with you.






Bronze clasp by Thea Too



Earrings by Spice Box Designs



Hand-cast pewter by Lynn Davis


Polymer clay by tooAquarius



jewelry with found objects by lilruby


I can't wait for the reveal days, can you?

  7. Ohhh I love those beads by tooAquarius- the shape is sweet and the colors perfect.

    You know if I wasn't so afraid of not making the darn deadline I might just sign up. Oh well, it is fun as a spectator I get to see lots of new things.

    As always, thanks Lori.
