My Bead Soup Has Arrived!

Yea!  I received my bead soup package from my partner Laura Sanger and I can't wait to start creating with these beautiful beads!  I'm glad I have a long weekend coming up :-)  I love the warm, earth tone colors, the bone pendant and the flower clasp!  These pictures aren't great, but here's a preview of what I received.

I like the purple box, beautifully wrapped with a pretty lace ribbon and purple flower!

A picture of everything out of the box.  Isn't the lace so pretty?  Lovely carved bone focal, with carved bone tubes and rondelles.  A mix of Goldstone and tiger eye rounds and a pretty floral clasp.

Look at these beautiful red fire-opal crystals, Austrian Crystals, large faux Amber beads and the copper spacers!  Laura even included the cute, fluted tin.

Not shown are some pretty Czech glass stars (I think they are going to be used for earrings), Carnelian chips and a tube of seed beads in golds, peach, cream and amber.

I'm afraid my pictures don't do these lovely beads justice and I'll try to get some better pictures when my hubby's home to help with the lighting.

Have a great evening!
