My Bead Soup has Arrived!


Oh look what I got in the mail yesterday! EEk these are beautiful glass beads made by Jenni Connolly.

First of all I opened my envelope that came all of the way from Australia and I found this beautiful box with a tied ribbon and nice ribbon note.

Already I am impressed and excited. Inside were these glass beads. I am in love with the glow of these fuchsia and purple beads.


Jenni was also so sweet and a beautiful toggle, silver beads, and stones from Australia. Very pretty. I am going to have to make Jenni proud....my brain is reeling with design ideas. I am going to have to carve out a space on my work table so I can lay out my beads and walk by. I am going to let this design stew for a bit. Whoa....I said stew and it's a bead soup! funny or maybe I just think it's funny...Here's a link where you can find links from everyone who is participating in the Bead Soup Blog Party. September 17th is the official date for the hop. That is when everyone will reveal their designs using the bead soup they received from their partner. It's going to be fun!

  3. Jennifer,
    what beautiful beads you received from your bead partner- the stones are glorious and I love the iridescence of the fuschia beads too.
    Have fun and it will be fun to see what you create with them.
    Regards,
    Anna
