BSBP 7 - Partner and Beads

My partner for the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party is Agi (short for Agatha) Kiss from Hungary. Yes, her surname is Kiss. How cool is that?! I realize that it of course doesn't mean the same thing in Hungarian, but still ...

Her business name in jewelry is MoonSafariBeads. 
Check out her blog here. It's bilingual.
And her Etsy shop here.

We are in the third reveal, on the 13th of April.

Hungary is a central European country, with a long and interesting history, and a very exciting cultural heritage. I am not overly knowledgable about it all at the moment, but my curiosity has been awoken now, so I will definetely look into it a bit more. It might perhaps lend some inspiration to the pieces I will make with what I got from Agi. I certainly hope so anyway.

Agi is a wiz with the polymer clay. Just check out these absolutely beautiful earrings below. I adore them!

She is also a skilled seed beader.

I got an exciting and beautiful soup from Agi. With a colorful mix of her awesome own made beads, and a clasp, in polymer clay, and other beads as well. Do you see the large blue rivoli bead in the bottom left picture? Now I will have to give it a go for the first time in my life to bezel a rivoli/cabochon. And I already have an idea for the polymer clay beads with the metal wire going through them. And check out that large metal pendant ... yum!

I sent Agi a, in my own mind, rather diverse soup, with no special theme to connect it all together. If anything, it would be the three different color themes, red, purple and green. And I did put a lot of art beads in there in materials other than polymer clay, for Agi to play around with. 

All my best,

I've been researching Hungary as a possible trip option this winter! I would love to get to see Vienna and Budapest! You've given me some additional inspiration to go! Also, wonderful soups both ways! Good luck!

I just checked out Agi's etsy shop - "wiz with polymer" is right! I think Lori did a great job pairing you two together. I can't wait to see what you both make.
