Bead Soup - What My Partner Gave Me!

Guess what was in the mail yesterday!

Okay, so perhaps today's blog title gave it away, but it's still exciting! I got my Bead Soup from my partner... And, it's absolutely awesome! 

As a refresher, my partner is the lovely Keri Lee Sereika of Pink Lemonade. She makes beautiful things... and I am so, so lucky, because she decided to include some of those beautiful things in my soup. Wow!

So, without further ado... What's in the bag?

Photo taken for dramatic effect...
Everything was originally packaged carefully in tissue paper and nestled neatly
inside that bag. I just happened to be too excited to take pictures beforehand. :)

This is what's in the bag!

As I said: Wow!

And now for close-ups! 

There is a gorgeous handmade focal:

The colors are simply stunning.

A gorgeous handmade clasp:

Elegant and functional.

Gorgeous hand-enameled beads:

I love the mix of colors.

Gorgeous handmade etched metal discs:

I am so excited to use these.

And, last but not least, gorgeous crystals and pearls:

I repeat: Wow!

I am spoiled, spoiled, spoiled!

I absolutely love the color scheme that she picked out... It's not one that I usually use, but that's part of the fun! For some reason, I just never really paired grey and teal together--much less grey and teal and green and cream. Looking at this mix, though, I'm sure it won't be the last time!

I already have ideas floating around in my head about what I want to do with this beautiful soup. In fact, it took all of my willpower to take pictures before I started diving in!

Thank you so, so much Keri for such an awesome mix!

...And, for the curious, here is a sneak peak of what I sent her:

To see what I really sent her, tune in tomorrow, when I show what that picture actually shows! :)

Woo-hoo! This is going to be so much fun! 


  1. Love your soup. What great possibilities. I can not wait to see what you make.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! :)
