BSBP Hoarders Edition, Teaser

Lori Anderson ( is having another Bead Soup Blog Party (the 9th!) and you are all invited to come see the party decorations on Saturday, March 25 2017. This time we are sending hoarded beads and treasures to our partner. Lori emplored us to package up what we were going to give before we knew who our partners were, so that is what I did. I think this was a great idea as then you focus on the beads, and not on trying to drive yourself crazy cyberstalking your partner. My partner this time is Jenny Kyrlach.

Here is her Etsy:

Here is her blog, Wonder and Whimsy:

As you can see, Jenny knows quite a bit about blog hops and design challenges. I think these are a great way to meet people, incourage our creativity, and get disciplined about meeting deadlines. It was fun to look at her designs and I realized we have participated in a few of the same hops and are in several online groups together.

Jenny sent me the first art bead she ever bought. (I still have mine too.) She also sent me some lovely paper beads her mother taught her how to make along with amethyst and rose quartz.

Lori was clear we should not post a picture of what we sent until our partner did. I forgot to take a picture of what I sent so here is one I borrowed from Jenny, but since she hasn’t posted yet, you can’t see it. ;P

What I Sent

Please come back on March 25th to see what we made.

About windbent

I try to reclaim, reuse and re-love items from our past and make them modern again. I see my jewelry as a fusion of old and new, cross cultural, and spanning time periods. Because I use vintage items within my jewelry, there may be age related signs of love that make them special. Each piece will be unique or made in small batches that are similar, but still different. If I find an item I love and it doesn't want to become jewelry, I give it a new home in another art format.
