This is my first Bead Soup Blog Party.  I was partnered with Cassi Paslick who sent me such beautiful beads.  I used most of them in 4 designs.

Here is what she sent me:

My first Design was to make earrings.
Second Design is a Spring Bracelet made with the Green Tone Beads.  I added cute little brass bunnies for Easter.

Third Design is a wired wrapped necklace using the Beautiful Artisan Lentil Lampwork Focal Bead.  Both sides of this bead are equally gorgeous.
These lampwork birds are actually more silver than the picture is showing.

Other side of focal bead.

Fourth Designs is another Bracelet using the Pretty Pewter Clasp with the Blues/White Beads.

Thank you so much Cassi ( for  the fabulous beads and for being my partner!!  I loved working with what you sent me!!  The Lampwork Focal was to die for.  Hope you/everyone likes what  I created with this YUMMY SOUP.  If any one is interested in these pieces they are available for sale. 
Here's what I sent to Cassi.
Thank you Lori for all of your hard work in making this Blog Party so successful and fun!!  You are beyond special!
