Serving up some tasty bead soup!

Today is the first revel date for Lori Andersons Bead Soup Blog Party Hop.......and I am in the first reveal!
 This is my first necklace I made, Stepha Stamper my swap partner gave me a beautiful stone fan as part of my soup, along with some lavender fiber optic beads, and some lavender crystal beads, I added some gold luster size 8 seed beads and a copper clasp. And made a choker length necklace.
 My second piece I used the brown foiled focal along with more of the gold luster seed beads, and fresh water pearlsand fall toned crystals. Also an  filigree bead that I flame enameled and an acorn prayer box and various crystals and leaf beads for dangles
  The last necklace I used the beautiful dragonfly focal, some lime green fiber optic beads, some grey ab beads and the beautiful crystal adorned clasp, all provided by Stepha.... I also added some tanzanite crystal drops and some crystal ab fire polish beads to make a beautiful fairy princess necklace!

My Bead Soup Has Arrived!

 My bead soup has arrived! It was like Christmas in July! My partner Stepha Stamper of Rainy Days Designs, really spoiled me, with not just one but two beautiful bead soups!  A warm color selection, and a cool one! The warm one had two different focals and lots of beautiful beads and antiqued brass findings
 The cool selection has a beautiful silver toned dragonfly focal, a pretty leaf charm, and a beautiful silver toggle with crystal accents, and lots of beads in delicate spring tones.....My mind is spinning with lots of ideas, and I need to get started because I have to be done in time for the first reveal at the end of the month!
