Squeals of delight! My partner in the Bead Soup Blog Party- Bead Hoarders' Edition sent me the most incredible, beautiful, amazing, glorious, fantabulous beads and components EVER! She sent me an entire soup with beads, focal, clasp, ribbon, and many other beads that match for inspiration. Thank you so much Judy Jacobs.

I knew I was in for a treat first of all because she is a very talented painter and glass artist. How lucky am I to get paired with someone who makes art for A LIVING! You must check her out here.

Second, because the box the beads came is was a work of art in itself. No doubt I will be able to use that shell in a creation at a later date.

So here they are......

My soup.

1. Beautiful glass bead made by Anastasia who lives in Germany and two spacers. (More to come about her if I can find her website)

2. Two beads made by Judy herself. I love the colors. They remind me of the beach.

3. The asian coin is right up my alley. And the gorgeous sterling clasp. 

4. An assortment of matching beads for inspiration.

What a generous lady. This is awesome. I don't have to work very hard to make a masterpiece out of these components.  I could literally just attach them to string and make a gorgeous necklace.  I can't wait to get to work this project. And again, I have been waiting to participate in a Bead Soup swap for a long time. Thank you Lori Anderson

 for doing this again and inviting me to be part of it.

Stay tuned.......

  1. So very glad you like your beads, Leslie! And I cannot wait to see what you create with them :-) Here's a link to Anastasia, the bead artist from Germany - her work is exquisite. I'm so excited you're my partner and look forward to the big "reveal" day!
