Bead Soup Party---day of the reveal!


Today is the big day of the REVEAL!  I made this lariat necklace with beads I received from Norma in Oregon, and I'm very pleased with the result.  I am auctioning it off and I will send the entire profit to The Prem Rawat Foundation that deals directly with sending funds to help suffering people all around the world--right now Haiti.  Shipping is free and the bid starts at $ 10.  The auction will run until midnight  February 17, and all you have to do is post a comment and leave a bid.  Even if you don't want to bid, please leave a comment!  No pressure. :)  Please check out the other blogs involved in the party.  We had more than 80 entrants, so the variety of jewelry created is spectacular!
Check out the list of other blogs involved here. Thank you Lori Anderson for creating the party!

 
 
The lariat measures 19" and the pendant is 3" long.
