Let me introduce you to my soup partner, Julie Anne Leggett of the Peaceful Bead. She sent me this rosy little collection of stones, pearls, a Czech button, tin bead caps from Donna Miller and a sterling silver clasp. Be sure to stop over to Julie's blog to see what she created with the soup I sent her when you finish here.
Along with my soup, I pulled some ingredients from my bead boxes: a ceramic leaf from Earthenwood Studio, a pewter rose from Green Girl Studios, polymer clay disks and a willow headpin from my own Humblebeads line and them some deliciously painted pewter pieces.
Some of the paints are more opaque and some offer more of a wash of color, letting the metal shine through. I loved playing the paints again and will be pulling them out for future projects.
