It's Heeeeeeeere!!

My Bead Soup arrived!! My Bead Soup arrived!

 Leah Tees has spoiled me rotten!

And a wonderful Bead Soup it is! It arrived packaged in a pretty sheer baggy, with a little hint of what was within:

Tea!! How did you know I was a tea grannie, Leah??! Now I can sip AND stitch :-)

I LOVE and design with colour and lots of it, but I really don't WEAR colour for some reason...I'm the Woman in Black! So Leah hit it head on with her choices:

....a gorgeous ceramic (?) focal from Tori Sophia
....another gorgeous gemstone focal...agate? Jasper?
...a pretty round silver toggle closure
...some really cool silver "paisley" charms
....seed beads in size ll/0 in three colours (yaaay!)
...some lovely-in-the-hand fat black drop beads...these feel yummy!
...three beautiful chunky ceramic beads, shading black to grey
...purple sparkle! (I'm all about the sparkle)
...a fun pearl/gemstone/sparkly mix of bigger seeds and shapes
...and last but not least, two softly rounded squares of striped jasper

A few closeup photos:

What immediately came to my Tropical Night Sparkle....I don't know where that came from, but that's what the muse says, and so that's where we're headed.

 Check back on April 13th for the reveal!


  1. Oh wow! That's a whole pot of bead soup you have there :-). Can't wait to see what you make from it.

  2. Looks like a fun soup. I will check back to see what you make.
