Last week a package arrived in the mail. This was inside! Lots of little packages all wrapped up.
My bead soup from Iveth Caruso! Inside were a wonderful variety of beads, including several possible focal beads, purple leather cord, and two clasps.
There are quite a few possible focal beads- a wonderful large dichroic glass square bead, a peachy pink large lampwork bead with a wave design, a purple enamel rose, and two dotted blue lampwork beads. There are polymer clay buttons, enameled metal, metal, crystal, and a variety of glass beads. The colors are great and I am thinking about a number of different combinations.
It is the eighth bead soup party. This year there are almost 500 participants. We participants got paired with each other and put together and swapped a “bead soup” made from a special focal bead, some coordinating beads, and a special clasp. Now Iveth and I and the other participants will make a special piece of jewelry from the soup.
Here is the “bead soup” I sent to Iveth:
I sent a variety of focal beads and smaller beads, all lampwork made by me. I also sent Iveth crystals, Czech beads, and other glass beads. I hope Iveth likes them as much as I like hers.
