Bead Soup Arrival

I received delicious soup from my partner Shari Replogle. I love the bag she sent it in.

Here's a group shot of the soup:

The focal is a piece of transferware (I think that's what Shari called it...I don't have my cheat sheet to check) from the 18th century that she made into this lovely bird focal. It's my favorite color too.

I absolutely adore the etched bullet casings and the domed discs. LOVE THEM! The clasp is so pretty.

And if that wasn't enough, she also sent some gorgeous coordinating beads.

And since Shari has received her soup from me, I can share what I sent.

The focal is a lampwork infield antique key and the clasp is a super cute sterling silver toggle I bought a long time ago. I don't remember where I got it. I sent a few lampwork beads and lampwork headpins along with some coordinating Czech glass, swarovskis, seed beads, hand dyed silk ribbon, and some wire lentils. I can hardly wait to see what Shari makes!



I LOVE what you got, the etched pieces and the color combination of the beads and everything is wonderful. And what you sent is no slouch either. Makes me wish I was playing along!!


Oh my, both soups are divine:-)

I absolutely Love my soup Jennifer!

I could ooh and aah over those glass

head pins all day :)



Both what you received and what you sent are gorgeous. I know you'll have some fun working with all the goodies and I'm sure whatever you make will be phenomenal!
