Bead Soup Blog Hop -- Introducing K. Hutchinson, My Partner

Not quite a year ago I was introduced to a whole new world of beading artists when I discovered the "blog hop".   I was too late to join the The Bead Soup Blog Party, created and run by the amazing Lori Anderson, last year but this year I got in!  To learn more go to: What is a Bead Soup Blog Party?

Acceptance by K. Hutchinson

So let me introduce my partner, K.  Hutchinson.  K. is a working mother with 2 young sons -- how she finds the time and energy to create art and keep up her blogging (Jumbled Hutch Blog) and Etsy shop (Jumbled Hutch) is beyond me.  And what wonderful art -- water colors, mixed media (check out her "inchies"), darling little hand drawn pendants, and, of course, jewelry.

Hand Drawn Pendants, K. Hutchinson

K and I are both self professed Nerds and Dabblers, with a strong dose of "I Could Do That" thrown in.  We have both migrated from our first loves: K. from water color and me from sewing, tho we carry those skills into our beading.

So now that K has received my soup I am free to show what I gave her to work with.   The soup is a mix of my hand dyed silk ribbons,  assorted sizes and shapes of seed beads, turquoise, a raku cat pendent and patines copper clasp and chain links.  I cant wait to see what K. does with it,  I'm sure it will be beautiful.  Stay tuned.
