Woo hoo - my bead soup package from Alicia has arrived safely in my letterbox all the way from Canada.
I had to wait a couple of days to photograph the soup as the weather here has been overcast and rainy, and I love taking my photos out in the natural light.
So here it is - and what a wonderful package with the added Canadian Pin (nice touch)
|Bead Soup Ingredients|
Alicia has handmade the silver flower focal and clasp. She has worked with a wonderful fall pallet, gifting me with jade & rhodonite gemstones, swarovski crystals and some other gemstone chips and flowers. - I am now in creative mode thinking of the possibilites for these ingredients.
I have also been working on some reactive twisties for a challenge on the Lampwork Etc Forum - some not working quite the way I want them - but never the less it is all experimentation and taking yourself out of your comfort zone.
|Reactive Twistie Experimentation|
During the week I made a couple of bracelets to showcase my Mandala beads - one has already gone to a new home - I will be listing the other in Etsy sometime soon.
Finally a few beads made with DH Terra 2 Silver Reactive Glass
