My Bead Soup Arrived!

How exciting to come home to a package in my mailbox! I was especially looking forward to this one. It was my Bead Soup from my partner, Janet.

I see that she is determined to challenge me. She made a point to select colours that I don't normally use, including some beads that are Radiant Orchid, Pantone's colour of the year.

She made the copper pendant, as well as, the enameled beads and clasp. I really want to learn how to do that some day. I just love the look of the enameled elements.

Included in my package was three colours of sari silk made by a women's co-operative in Inda and some lime green nylon cord for stringing.

I will have to put on my creative thinking cap and come up with a design worthy of this wonderful Bead Soup. I wish that I could have taken a decent photo tonight. After several attempts, the above shot is the best of the bunch.


  1. That's some gorgeous bead soup. I know whatever you create will be beautiful.

  2. I just love the colors in your soup. And that silk...just yummy.

  3. Wow! Love the colors of green with purple. Delicious bead soup you have there.

  4. Gorgeous beads! I know not your style but still very pretty. Hopefully you have fun with the creative process!
