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!
