BEAD SOUP BEAD PARTY... SEVEN!!!!

Can you believe it?  It's party time again... Bead Soup Bead Party 7... SEVEN!  That is a lot of beads and a lot of happy.  With a huge thank you to the founder and host, Lori McDaniel Anderson.

'Sparklefly' by Diana Mains Welte 2013

My creation features beads from Sandra Richardson of Texas.  Pulling out the red and blue of the beads, I was able to come up with a fun but very wearable piece that would look great with a summer white dress or those comfortable jeans and breezy top.  With the gold accents behind the focal... well, that sparkle makes it great for July 4th celebrations, too!
