I've been playing around with these fabulous bead soups that have been created by Beverly Gilbert. If you haven't seen what she can do with color, you have to stop by her website. I'm heading out to her vacation home in Whidbey Island, Washington, tomorrow to take some of her colorful bead weaving classes. I can't wait to see what I come up with. I already own a lot of her bead soup mixes, so I looked through my stash to decide which color theme I wanted to go with for my class project. I ended up calling her to see what mixes she had on hand. She said not to worry, she'd have a dozens of new color combinations to show me and I could just decide then. She said I may even change my color ideas a few times before I decide on the final project. I'll post some photos from Whidbey Island as soon as I can get my hands back on a computer. For now, I'll show you some photos of necklaces I've made with her bead soups.
