Bead Soup Blog Party – Meet My Partner

I have a few things that have been going on. First and foremost, I am finally official. I have my business license in hand with my new official name – Melissa Muir – Metalsmith. YAY. Let the real business begin. My goal this year is to finally make a profit. Even just a little one.


I am participating once again (3rd time) in Lori Anderson’s Bead Soup Blog Party. This one is HUGE, I believe over 500 people participating.

My partner is Sheila Davis who does amazing things with glass. She has some beautiful lampwork beads, clasps, headpins, etc. Just check out her blog:

This is the beautiful soup she sent me. The focal and toggle are both made from glass. I am going to have to figure out a way to feature that toggle, for sure. The funny thing about our soups, we both used similar pallets, though hers featured more blue/green and mine had more purple. I love it, because that is actually the mood I am in anyway.


The soup I sent to her had some fun little things. For the challenge, we are only required to use a focal and clasp. The rest are optional and we can add to it however we want.


I will be back shortly with a few videos and some pieces I have been working on.
