bead soup simmering


Yesterday, my bead soup arrived. I was so happy to finally get the package from Jennifer Tough. I have been waiting so patiently for it to arrive from Canada.  I could not get any pictures of the package because I could not rip it open fast enough.  I did take some nice pictures of it all so you could see everything in detail!

Jennifer sent 3 tubes of seed beads in beautiful colors; 2 orange lucite leaves; a selection of Jennifer's own handmade lampwork glass beads in orange tones....


She sent a strand of faceted glass amber/gold rondelles; a strand of lampwork cubes from Unicorne Beads; a strand of matte glass chartreuse leaves....


She sent a handful of her handmade components... 2 hearts, a bead cap, an acorn....






The focal she sent is one of her locked Hearts, and the pendant is a toggle that matches....



Some more Unicorne glass in a glittery orange palette...



A small bag of offset Olive green glass Lentils, a squiggly wire component, and a bronze wire donut.... and she sent one of her own sweet little mushroom charms too!



Jennifer got her bead soup yesterday too! Head on over to her blog, to see the soup I sent!

I am so excited to get started, the ideas are swimming in head and I know I will be dreaming about what I will make. I couldn't be more thrilled with my bead soup!  Be sure to check back in, to see the results and to enjoy the blog hop on March 3rd.
