Ingredients...


My Bead Soup Partner Gina, totally and completely spoiled me!! Before we take a little stroll through all the "ingredients" she sent me I'll explain how the BSBP works. 

Lori partners us up and we are required to send out partners at least 1 focal, 1 fancy clasp (no lobster clasp) and any other extras we feel like adding in. We are then required to make at least one piece of jewelry and we HAVE to use the clasp and focal (if we make more than one piece we can split them up and use a focal in one and the clasp in another) and we are not required to use all of the beads or any of them if we don't want to but why in the world would I not? just look at everything Gina sent me...and keep in mind THIS isn't even all of it!!!


crystals, czech glass, faceted sparkly beauties!




agates, chysoprase, jasper and more!


charms, beads, toggles, hook clasps all in fabulous copper! I LOVE copper so much! 



Focal by ceramic artist Marsha Neal!!!!! squeeeeeeee!!!! 



more ceramic beads these were made by Janel Goolsby!




and some more czech glass beads in amazing shapes and colors...oh my, the colors are just fantastic!!! 

You have no idea how inspiring it is to just fondle and stare and drool over all these beads. I will most definitely be making MANY MANY pieces!!! 

March 30th is Gina and My's reveal date! 
I can't wait to see what Gina thinks of the ingredients I've sent her way and especially can't wait to see what she creates!!
