Soup is Simmering!

I received my wonderful Beads yesterday from my Bead Soup Blog Party Partner, Kim Bender-Hora. Kim is such a talented lady and the work she does with silverware is just absolutely amazing! You can check out her work by going to KimmyKats. Seriously! Go see what she creates! You will be amazed! Here is the soup that I get to work with! It is going to be a huge challenge for me as I am not a stringer, but a beadweaver. However that being said I have some ideas forming already. So here is what Kim sent me:

Lovely Jasper Beads 

A Beautiful Silver Clasp

Not only did Kim send me a wonderful soup but she also sent me some jewelry!  How lucky am I?  When I saw these beauties I had to pick my mouth up off the floor.  They are stunning!

Fork Tine Earrings

1939 Royal Rose Spoon Bracelet

It really amazes me what she can do with silverware!  I love love love the bracelet and earrings and I slept in the bracelet last night because it is so comfortable wearing that I forgot to take it off.  If you would like to see what I sent Kim you can click HERE.  I have to admit I think I might have gotten a bit carried away lol.  But luckily Kim is ok with that!  Yay!

Thanks for visiting and be sure to check back for the reveal!

Peace and <3


  1. Hi Marla,
    Oh what yummy soup ingredients I am sure you will come up with a very delicious creations with your soup mix. The jewelry pieces she sent to you are absolutely gorgeous.
    Please check my blog out there is a surprise there for you.

  2. Marla, I had to laugh about you sleeping with your bracelet. I hope that you have fun with the beads and enjoy your first bead soup experience. My first soup actually started me on the path to bead weaving. Maybe you will be tempted to cross the line and try a little wire work!!!! Please Please enjoy!!! Oh I do have to give the hubby some fame....he makes the bracelets...I get to create with his left overs.

  3. ooh. I don't blame you for being impressed by what you were sent. The jasper is really nicely co-ordinated and the bracelet is divine!

  4. Oh I just love Kim's work! Amazing what she can do with silverware! Can't wait to see what you do with your soup!

  5. Lucky you!! That bracelet is adorable and your bead soup is quite yummy-looking!
