Bead Soup Party Update

Here is a picture of amazing collection of beads Elisabeth sent me in the Bead Soup Party. It was wrapped in a ton of bubble wrap (better safe than sorry...precious cargo) and my husband laughed because he said I was like a kid on Christmas morning. The bubble wrap revealed baggies of goodies. A fun and beautiful toggle clasp...a cool and unique focal bead...a collection of red glass beads (you can't see the striations in them but they are beautiful)...some tear drop shaped copper colored beads with the hole going horizontal. And a string of round gemstone beads. The focal is creating a fun challenge for is drilled with two holes on one side and five holes on the other so I'm going asymmetrical. This is out of my comfort zone (but I like it). I am thinking I may end up doing two pieces or a set with the beads but we'll see what is left  when I'm done with the main piece.

Interestingly I sent her turquoise and red beads too but with silver accents...something about great minds comes to mind. Final pictures to come June 19th...check back

I'm really excited to see what you do with the focal :D
