Bead Soup Blog Party 7!

Its that time again! Time for another Bead Soup Reveal. I have been really faaar behind in blogging lately so I am going to show of the stash I sent my partner, Lara Lutrick, the stash she sent me, and my final design reveal. All at once! Can you handle it? :)

My reveal photos aren't the best. I had bad lighting on the day I photographed but when I get some more time I will try to photograph again.
This was my favorite Bead Soup swap. Lara is a lampwork glass artist and her lampwork beads were just stunning! 

My necklace design is approximately 30 inches long. It's hard to tell from the pic. b/c the necklace was hard to photograph. I am planning on wearing it to a wedding today! 

Thanks Lara for such a beautiful mix! I have plans for the rest of it when time allows.
And thanks Lori for organizing these blog hops!
