Having fun swapping beads? Keep on swapping!

Hello everyone!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and gave me a BSBP shout-out.  I’m still making my way around the Bead Soup posts myself and it’s been fun.  I’m really enjoying the incredible variety of jewelry I’m seeing! I’ve been in awe and have thought to myself so many times, “I never would have thought of that!”

I was thinking that while everyone is caught up in the bead swapping fever, I’d let you know that next month you’ll have another chance!  On Saturday night at artBLISS, we’re having a Bead Destash Social!  The Bead Soup queen herself,  Lori Anderson, will be there to host!

Drop off your beads with us, attend the Meet and Greet on Friday night (where you can meet the instructors, meet a few amazing authors, shop and enjoy dessert!) and let us do the sorting.  If you can’t make it on Friday night, you can drop off your beads on Saturday too. Meet some friends and go home with new beads!  If you are taking a Saturday evening class, no problem! You can stop by and grab some beads and a brownie before you head to class!

artBLISS is so easy to reach – not far from DC and next to a major airport (that has free shuttle service to our hotel!) – make plans to come!




Oh, in case you’re curious about how artBLISS came to be – stop on over to the collective Love My Art Jewelry blog, and read Jeanette’s story!

We hope you can join us!

Your give-some take-some swap sounds awesome, Cindy. I will be there in spirit… unless I happen to buy a winning lottery ticket (poor man’s Vegas LOL)!

I really love the idea behind the bead swap-Not only does it help us financially be able to afford things we might not have before, but it also gives us an opportunity to try new materials out and get connected with like minded people 🙂

I’m with Monique, though; I’ll be there in spirit since I definitely can’t afford it myself!
