My Bead Soup has arrived! Actually it came Monday but its been a hectic week and I wanted to wait until I had time and proper lighting to photograph the packaging and contents.
My Bead Soup partner, Carol Dillman, put together a gorgeous Bead Soup. Check out the sweet packaging!
Inside were several sterling beads, earwires, clasp, and a sweet starfish charm. She also included a delicate chain and a pile of accent beads. The colors are my favorites; blue and green!
And look at the fabulous lampwork bead she made!
And aren't these wire coils fabulous? I have always wanted to make my own after reading Kerry Bogert's book Totally Twisted, but never found the time.
And here is the bead soup I sent Carol. She works mainly in silver so I thought I would challenge her with Vintaj components. I sent along some chain, jump rings, a filligree piece, headpins, eyepins and my favorite clasp. And there's a lovely vintage limited stock stone from Vintaj as well.
For something different, I sent few vintage beads; lucite, crystals, and buttons, plus a wood bead from Pork Chop Show.
And after I had it almost packaged and ready to go, I decided to challenge Carol even more with some red agates, a peach pit, and ammonite fossil. I hope she still likes me after this....
I'm so excited about participating in my first Bead Soup Blog Hop, and I can't wait to see what everyone else makes! I hope you will come back on March 3rd for the reveal!
