I’m anxiously waiting for the bead soup that Lori Poppe, my partner in the Bead Soup Blog Party is sending. I hope whatever it is, I can do it justice! I really agonized over what to send her, and even tore open the package and changed all of the beads at the last minute. This isn’t the greatest picture, but here’s what I sent:

I sent Lori some of my favorite copper toned brass and turquoise czech glass beads. The focal is an ornate key charm that I added a verdigris patina to.

Maybe my package will get here today – if it does, I’ll be sure to show you!

About lilruby jewelry

My name is Joan Williams and I'm a self taught jewelry designer and mixed media artist. I was born and raised in the Chicago area, and I now live in the Missouri Ozarks with my husband, son and jillions of beads - along with lots of ephemera and stuff that my packrat ancestors saved (and I'm so glad they did)! My passion is creating jewelry that bears the patina of time and travel, using a blend of new components and found objects. I'm also crazy about antiques, horses, flowers, rusty hinges and chipped paint, so you never know what I might be inspired to talk about. I hope you'll stop by from time to time to see what I'm up to! Click below to visit my Etsy shop and my Facebook page, and to see additional photos on Flickr.
