Along with her wonderful beads in those tropical colors Genea mixed in some fun pieces from My Elements and a collection of colorful Czech glass.
The clasp that Genea sent is a glass button - so cute!
And the focal - a bead within a bead. Okay let me say that again - a bead WITHIN a bead. How is that even done? So my beadmaking parnter is also a magican. I'm impressed.
Bead inside a bead.
I pulled out a few things from my stash that will add some spice to my soup - I have a starfish and a feather pendant that I made along with some of my disk beads. Mixed in some glass and those little enemal headpins are from SueBeads for flavor. I'm sure I'll make several pieces from the very generous helping that was sent my way.
You can see the soup I sent to Genea here.
I'm also happy to announce that I'm one of the contributors to Lori Anderson's upcoming book, Bead Soup. You can read more here.
Now I need to go find an outfit to match those beads to wear on the cruise.
