I really lucked out with my bead soup partner Andrea Morici of Beadaholique. She absolutely spoiled me . . .and yes, I know I said the same thing about Patty's package from the last bead soup. It really amazes me how many generous beaders there are out there.
I won't get as picture heavy and lengthy as I did before, but I still want to show you all the lovely items that Andrea sent.
First, when I saw the envelope that I knew contained the bead soup, I was giddy.
Look at it bulging!!
Here's what it contained.
1. Swarovski crystal aquamarine rondelles
2. Antiqued Copper fluted round beads
3. Round black wood beads
4. Topaz cathedral beads
5. Tapered tube dyed green magnesite beads
6. Round red carnelian beads
7. Glass round matte druks
8. Round faceted yellow honey jade beads
9. Round yellow with red stripe ceramic beads
10. Grass green silk ribbon
11. Red rose cinnabar beads
I'm guessing you want to see the focal and the clasp too huh. . .
13. Golem ceramic round pendant with daisies and ladybugs
And, this is what they all look like together!
This bead soup is AWESOME. I've thanked Andrea profusely. . .or at least I hope I have. Of course, the awesomeness also makes it very intimidating. I don't know where to start. Right now, I've just got the beads simmering on the craft desk as I'm still working up the nerve to cut those strings per Kate's advice. Of course I know that the mixing would definitely help me see a few more possibilities.
Before I go stir the soup, here's what's new in the shop
