A Tranquil Soup Mix Revealed....

I would love to be able to say that I finally received my soup mix from my Bead Soup Partner, but the fact of the matter is, I received it a couple of weeks ago, but I'm just finally getting around to taking some decent photos. Some of you may have already followed the link to my partners page (Erin Siegel) and seen the mix there.  Nevertheless, here it is and I'm loving the calm feelings the colors are giving me.   


Here you have a shell floral focal bead, and a silver metal flower button.  I can't say that I've ever worked with a button before, so I'm really looking forward to doing something neat with that. Using the currant seed beads and the button, I could make a toggle closure or  maybe it will turn into the focal. 

 
This shot gives you a better view, of the Lemon Turquoise..yummy. These beads have some brown mixed in with them - do I see wood mixed in their future?  I also have here some ruby red glass beads, and garnet glass. 
Here's one more shot that showcases it all together.  I've sketched a few designs out so far, but I still haven't decided what I'm going to do. I'm just hoping it all comes together before February 26th, when the final reveal is happening. I do my best work under pressure, so as far as my brain is concerned ~ I have plenty of time to doodle! ~ Nothing like some healthy stress, eh? 


Unveiling in ideas,

Thanks ladies, the beads have been very fun to play with. After cleaning off my desk this weekend I finally got my hands really dirty with them and I'm ready to make something!

Really pretty designs. Makes me want to start beading again. Boy do I have lots of beads and strands to sell. I guess I will post them on eBay
