I Have Re~DONE my BEAD SOUP!! Todays is the Day!!

The Big Reveal
Hi everyone! I want to say that I have Re~done my Soup!! The top picture is my Soup I did today. My husband and my Son said "look what you did that's ugly". Then I had an anonymous comment that said I was promoting my Lampwork. My intention was not to cover up Davinia's pretty focal. I felt so bad. Here is my Re~do. And you know what this is much prettier! What was I thinking? Here is Davinia's focal on a much prettier necklace. Yey.
Thank you Davinia for your lovely beads!

This is HOW my Post started before I re~did it..
This GREAT day has finally arrived..with 362 marvelous women's Bead Soup! Lori Anderson you ALWAYS Bring it! Thank you for so much hard work..ox

Davinia Algeri of Back Pocket Designs. Davinia is my partner. She gave me a right chuckle when I first saw her Blog she described herself as:
 Wife, Mother to two KIPPERS. (Kids in Parents Pockets Eroding their Retirement Savings!) I love that! Davinia makes lovely polymer clay focals and beautiful jewellery. Be sure to go by Davinias page to see my own Lampworked Beads that I sent to her and what she did with them!
