The Bead Soup Swap & Create is sponsored by Lori Anderson. I appreciate the time that Lori spent organizing and setting up this swap and reveal. In a previous blog I introduced my partner for the swap-- artist Bee Kuhlman from Fort Worth, Texas. She is a digital artist, traditional painter, and tinkerer. Bee specializes in creating colorful illustrations as well as jewelry. She is also a colorful character. I love that during the swap she dyed her hair purple. I adore purple and several other friends of mine have or have had purple hair. Kudos to Bee!
I have a collection of geodes around my home because I am very fond of them. If you are wondering what a geode is they are rocks that are hollow inside, rather than solid all the way through. Geodes are generally round, though some are egg-shaped. They range from the size of a nut to several feet. Most geodes are about the size of a basketball. When broken or cut open, geodes reveal a lining of crystals or other materials inside. These crystals can be quite beautiful.
