The beads are here!

pretty blue packaging

It's time for another Bead Soup Party and I confess I'm a bit late to the party :-( This is my second Bead Soup and excited as I am to participate I sort of got caught up in a million other things, so now I'm rushing to keep up with the rest of the lovely beaders who've already blogged about their Soup partners, the beads they received, sent, etc.

My Soup partner this year is Agata from Poland who's already done here homework and published both the beads she sent me and the ones she received. You can see them on her blog: Cytherea Bijoux as well as her jewellery and photography, another hobby of Agata's. What can I say? A talented and lovely young lady :-)
The beads she sent me arrived in a super cute gift box. Each set of beads individually packaged in a separate mini zip lock back together with hand written labels.
And the surprises kept coming: Agata also sent me a pair of earring she'd made:

The reveal date for us is August 11th, which leaves me with a whole month to thing about what I'm going to make with the beads. No idea yet...



But the focal is just asking to be used in an opera length necklace or maybe as a single large bracelet charm?


If you're interested, here are the links to last year's Bead Soup:

And the awesome lady who's making sure everything runs smoothly for the 6th consecutive Bead Soup Party Lori Anderson from Pretty Things.

  1. Beautiful beads. I look forward to your design ideas. I vote for the focal clock piece to be used in a necklace design :).
