My lovely partner for the BSBP sent me lovelies! I am thrilled that we were able to connect so quickly, and am so glad to have met Bobbie of Beadsong. She's a wonderful person, and we're having fun getting to know one another. We seem to have lots in common!
Without further ado, here is the amazing soup she sent to me!! She packaged it with a gorgeous red ribbon, and sent me a beautiful card. (I felt kind of bad, because the day I was getting things together to mail out, my husband was in a mad rush to get out the door for work and I didn't have time to write a note at all!)
The beautiful lampworked flower focal bead is by Elizabeth Girod, and look at all the beads Bobbie included in my soup!! I love the clasp she made especially for my piece, too - so jealous, as I can't work with wire no matter what I do. I'm lucky if I can make a wrapped loop without hurting myself, lol. I wanted to get a photo of allllll the beads together, but the amethyst, onyx, agate and red onyx would NOT sit still on my white background and I had to resort to the bead mat.
I think it will be a challenge for me to work with these colors, and that's always a good thing - streeeeeeeetch!!!
I hope that Bobbie enjoys playing in the soups I sent her, I was extra pleased that she is also a fan of my friend Julie Canon of Julsbeads, and that she likes the focal sets I sent her! I sent two soups because I just wasn't sure what would be best. They kind of coordinate, so they could be combined, or used separately. Bobbie's blogged about our soups here. :) (The gold clasp in the first photo is a custom clasp made for me by Hodgepodgerie on Etsy - HIGHLY recommended!!)
My apologies for the short post today, but I'm swamped and have to run. Cheers!!
