Ingredients For Bead Soup Have Arrived!



It is so much fun to get a box of beads in the mail! My bead soup partner, Suzette, sent me a wonderful assortment of beads. blues, browns, ambers, and even a little pink thrown in! Also a really fun brass clasp and some flat leather cord. The focal is a clay bead from Humblebeads, it has a very organic feel to it. There are two matching clay beads also from Humblebeads. The light blue beads are faceted blue lace agate...a very pretty color! She put in some really neat shaped dark brown Phillippine wood beads, some Bronzite rondelles and a whole bag of czech glass beads that are amber in color. I have a couple ideas...we will see what I finally come up with. I can't wait to see what Suzette makes with the beads I sent her. The final reveal is March 3rd. There are 200 participants this time...that is a lot of blog hopping!
