It's Here, IT'S HERE!!!!!!

Oh, I'm so excited, my Bead Soup arrived today. My dear partner, Tara at The Newbie Beader's Blog, has had a tough time getting it to me. She is in the middle of moving, and it came back to her once.
So, without further ado, here are my lovelies to play with:
 A stunning porcelain focal, and beautiful filigree clasp. Gosh, no hardship there in using these gorgeous pieces!
 Yeah, seed beads in a wonderful mix of blues,  dyed quartz, and a cobalt faceted bead with copper accent coating.

 Sodalite, lovely pressed glass in various shapes, and a soft turquoise stone. (Not sure on the name for that one.)

 And, last but certainly not least, a charming mix of size 8's and some marvelous freshwater pearls.
My brain is racing with so many ideas. I've gotta go now and play....


  1. What beautiful beads you have gotten! I love how the clasp looks like the focal out of different material!! I read your bog for the first time today- I am in the Soup Party -Alice's bads and Baubles- and I see you are a Christian- I would love to be your friend. Check out my blog and tell me what you think?? I think we are kindred hearts. I love your blog and the bread looks yummy too! Alice

  2. what a pretty mix of colors... so soft and soothing! Looks like you will be having some fun!

  4. Shirley...I especially like the filigree clasp! I know you will enjoy working with all the ingredients you received for your soup =)

  5. Hi Shirley - What a great bead mix - I'm sure you'll have a great time with that and make something spectacular! Love your other bead creations and that bread looks pretty delicious as well. Lisa :)
