Introducing my Bead Soup Blog Party partner - Laney of Izzybeads.
We are both Bead Soup Blog Party first timers
and very excited about it!
We've exchanged friendly emails and
our beads have arrived both ends.
So we're all set to create.
Our styles are very different so
It's going to be a challenge for both of us.
I think that's one of the great things about this blog hop bead exchange -
getting to use components in a different style to those you would normally
I'm thrilled with what Laney has sent to me and am working on getting some
photographs to try and do them justice because they are
absolutely amazing. Like little works of art!
Laney is a very talented lampworker who sells her work
at bead shows around the country
and also on Etsy.
Catch up with her over at
Or take a peek at her Etsy shop
Her beads are really good fun and designed to make you smile.
(I am particularly fond of the snail bead with a 'Des-Res' shell!)
