Bead Soup Ingredients

What's in the soup?
I received my soup in the mail from my partner, Stephanie LaRosa :)...somehow we <unintentionally> managed to send each other the same color palette! (We must both have warmer weather on our minds.) I'm looking forward to creating something out of the beads she sent, although it will be somewhat of a challenge for me because I predominantly work with wire and not by stringing. Thankfully I have until April 6th to finish my design(s).

  1. It is amazing that your partner's choice of colors and yours are the same. Beautiful soups. I am sure you will have plenty of fun playing with this soup.

  2. They both look so colorful and rich, can't wait to see what comes from them!

  3. Love the color combo, did you coordinate with each other? If not that is an amazing likeness. I love that little flower clasp...

  4. Stopping by all the blogs taking part in the bead soup blog party. Cant wait to see what you make!
