Bead Soup Party - Reveal Day!

(FYI- I really didn't reveal early - it was after midnight but for some reason due to the time zones it shows the post being Friday not Saturday!)


Here is my finished piece that I made from my bead soup mix from Rubiee (#104) on the list.  


My mix before:










My finished bracelet:





I decided to do a bracelet since the bead mix I received  were mostly smaller sized beads.  I've enjoyed the concept of this party and look forward to looking at all the creative ideas on the other blogs listed below.  Thank you, Lori, for hosting all of us and working so hard!
