Bead soup/bead show party: best idea this week

February 21, 2010

Rings & Things’ blog partner, Heather Powers, is hosting a “Bead Soup” beading party before the next R&T bead trunk show in San Antonio.

Why not organize a Rings & Things bead show party with your beady friends when R&T rolls into your town?  Gather together before or after Rings & Things’ next trunk show for a bead soup party.

What is it? A bead soup party consists of everyone bringing a 16” strand of beads in a set color scheme along with one clasp, focal bead and stringing materials.  The strands of beads get tossed into a bowl, mixed together and scooped out evenly among the party goers.  Everyone then creates a bracelet or necklace with their bead soup while visiting with each other.  Serve chocolate for best results!

If you have your bead soup party after the trunk show, everyone can pick up something at the show to contribute!  Shopping with a group of bead enthusiasts is the best — discovering and sharing a good find with friends is half the fun.

PS: See Heather’s stash from last year’s Rings & Things trunk show at her blog.  We look forward to seeing yours!
