My Bead Soup has Arrived

I received my bead soup from my partner Elsie ( Don't forget to check out her blog)You won't believe how incredibly generous she was. There are over 150 artists participating in this hop.  You randomly get placed with another artist, The artists contact each other get to know something about them and then you exchange at least one focal and one clasp and some coordinating beads.  Some people send lots some send less but you have to send at least those few things.  Elsie went all out even making a little luggage type card that she decorated with material and it has all of her info printed on it.  You will see it to the right of the first picture.  I opened the box and she had everything labeled.  Tons of bags.

When I opened all the bags I was so excited.  There was quartz gemstones, pearls, these great beige and blue ceramic beads, some brass and silver pieces, a key, some beautiful beads that are made out of cord in a beautiful seafoam green,some crystals a great quartz focal.  I will show in more detail in my next post.

I sent Elsie her focal and clasp with beads in this purple box:

I made this copper focal out of PMC Copper clay.  The focal has kind of a vintage look.  I also sent some copper beads and a copper clasp

Soup two consisted of a fused glass focal I made with fuschia, gold and green with black accents. Unfortunately really hard to capture the shine and glitz of the dichroic glass

I also included a couple of bags of beads in various colors

I also sent Elsie some extra beads because she teaches seniors how to wire wrap and make jewelry

Well stay tuned for the rest of the journey!
