GB Cup of Bead Soup on Lori Anderson's bead table

Hello friends!
Shhh... it's the weekend. I'm not supposed to be "working", BUT.... I had to share with you that Lori Anderson of Pretty Things will be creating a piece with my cup of bead soup!

So what did she get? Ok I totally stole Lori's photos since the ones I took were pretty craptacular, so thanks Lori!! :D

Rubber o's, enameled chain, lucite ring, and rubber tubing by My ELEMENTS, bag is recycled sari silk available from Jess Imports.

So what's so awesome about the beads I sent her? Well most of the glass I used was "odd lots". Incase you don't know what they are, odd lots are glass that has turned out different than it's original formula. They are usually amazing colors and there is only ONE batch of glass like it. That's it, period, dot, THE END. When it's gone, it's GONE. 

I used amazing odd lot glass from Bullseye.
Some of the glass in these beads is from my "Freaky, Streaky, Striker" pack that was purchased at the ISGB gathering that was in Kansas City in 2006, so this glass is LONG GONE.

I can't wait to see what she makes! Stop on over to her blog to see what she had to say.
Have a fantastic weekend!

Much love,
