Copper Bead Soup

Hello everyone!
My soup was cooked late but here it is!!
My partner is Karen Meador from Dream Catcher Ranch in San Antonio, Tx. She creates beautiful wire wrapped jewelry as well as amazing metal components.
She sent me a fold formed copper pendant made by her. It is totally cool! In my soup she also included a copper hand made clasp and link along with lapis beads.







I added silk ribbon in 2 different colors and a super cute polymer clay owl from Earth Tones Online on etsy.
Thanks so much to Lori for organizing this enormous pot of soup for everyone in the beading community to enjoy.
Happy blog hopping!!
With Love, Laura
