Treasures by post! Its Bead Soup time...
I was so horrified! To realize that because of clumbsy typing on my iPad I had sent my Bead Soup partner the wrong mailing address! After work I knocked on the door of #10. ( I live at #109...) The resident's Mom was dog sitting. And yes - there actualy was a package! ( My heart is racing! I could have hugged her!) So here to my relief - is my bag-o-treasure from the lovely and talented Cassie Donlen!
( If you are lost: here's the condensed version. Sign up, get a partner. Send them beady treasures, they reciprocate. Make something fab, test your comfort zone, play and experiement. Blog it, hop around, share the love. Its the Bead Soup Blog Party)
So many packages spilling out, bountious goodness on my kitchen counter! "Be a Bad Girl" I love it...
First there are the colorful beads of the soup itself...
Delicious copper chain! Spiral beads! And to think she has NOT met me - so perfect!
The lampwork - Cassie's own. What a magical mysterious flower, an exotic bloom...And a sweet clasp.
The lampwork glass beads in detail. I love the enamleed copper with the green polka dot drop/head pin.... They are going to have to remain together. I have a tendency to design pieces where "Less is more" and the details of the artists bead can really stand out. That means I have multiple pieces starting to take shape in my mind's eye.
I am so thrilled with what Cassie sent, and thank her for her calm patience while I tracked down my loot! She was sooo generous to me!
Her shop, you ask? Why yes - its here.
What did I send her? Her pix are better than mine.
