ZnetShows Designers Participate in 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party

Due to some unfortunate and untimely health issues of the amazing hostess of The Bead Soup Blog Party (BSBP), the reveal was postponed for a week. However, the wait is over and today's the party! This blog party has jewelry designers paired up with one another to swap a 'bead soup'. Each bead soup must contain a focal, a clasp, and a few coordinating beads. The designers must then use the focal and clasp in one or more designs (the coordinating beads are optional) and then reveal those designs on party day.

Many of our own ZnetShows designers were discovered via the BSBP, and there are still quite a few of them participating in the event. Please see the complete list of participants on the Bead Soup Blog Party Blog. However, if you just want a taste of the event to start with, might I suggest visiting some of the blogs of our designers who are participating this year.
