Bead Soup Has Arrived!! Yes, I'm shouting because I'm so excited! I didn't get a photo of the package, but really who can blame me. I was too busy tearing into it.
Here's what I reaceived from my partner Bobbie. She sent me these gorgeous metal components: liquid silver, silver tangle beads, silver plated pewter square beads, and a gorgeous silver plated pewter clasp.
Also included were these lovely beads; an agate donut focal, forest agate lentils, shell buttons, two-hole squares, and discs, some Czech glass, and lovely blue topaz.
But my favorite has to be this stunning lampwork bead by Kate Towle with the tiny seashells inside. Bobbie couldn't decide on which focal to send, so she sent two. Actually that silver is too pretty to be in the back, so I'll probably use as a focal too. I'm feeling pretty lucky!
For the soup I sent Bobbie, I chose the colors of summer, cool greens and blues to represent the clear blue sky, vacations at the lake, and digging your toes in the cool green grass (that is if you have green grass). There's ceramic, polymer, lampwork, and stone beads here.
Bobbie also received an assortment of beads the colors of the hot sun, beach balls, and sunburns.
More lampwork, and a handmade clasp from Melinda Orr.
I'm so excited and I can't wait for our August 25th reveal date!
