Bead Soup Blog Party Bead Reveal

Just a peek.  Here's the Bead Soup I sent to Loretta Carstensen, who is my BSBP partner.
There was Cherry Quartz, Rhodonite, Hammered copper washers/discs, copper beads, Jasper focal, Handcrafted Fused Glass focal with Green Adventurine glass and Dichroic glass, Handcrafted Copper clasp, some fiber beads and more.
And here's the great Bead Soup Loretta sent me:
Isn't it great?  There's Smoky Quartz, Dalmation jasper, Gold filled clasp and spacers, some cute gold seed beads and a Mother of Pearl (I think) bead/focal.  I must admit, I don't usually work with such large beads as the Smoky Quartz, but I've got several ideas swimming around.  And I've been going through my stash to see if I want to add anything or just work with her great "Soup".  Stay tuned!

Can't wait to see your design. I have mine finished. I made two necklaces and some earrings. I hope you like them.

I will be traveling for 5 weeks in our travel trailer, so hope we are near wifi on the 17th.

Thanks Loretta. You're really fast. Can't wait to see what you made. I keep going back in forth in my mind for my idea/design.

Thanks Ann and T.

I have to chuckle. I sent some larger beads to my partner also. And she doesn't use large beads either.
