As I have written earlier I am participating in the Bead Soup Blog Party (BSBP) organized by the fabulous Lori Anderson of Pretty Things Blog. My swap partner Jenny of Mrs M Makes and I take part in the third reveal date that is on April 13th. I got my bead soup from Jenny a while ago but I got the flu and have not been able to anything bead related, or anything else, for a while. Bur yesterday I managed to take some photos of my soup so I finally can show the lovely soup.
The soup consists of yummy green, purple, teal and turquoise stone beads, the focal and two toggle clasps.
The focal is a quite large antiqued silver metal shield-like pendant with a resin center. Its really lovely and it really got my mind going with design ideas right away.
Jenny sent me two clasps a bigger one and a really tiny one.
I think the flat stones is some type of Agate in purple and brown, the purple strand whit smaller beads is a much more vibrant color i real life. Wonder why purple is so hard to photograph.
She also sent me strands of matte/frosted green agate and some lovely teal/green/brown coins as well as a strand of turquoise beads.
Do you want to see what bead soup I sent to my partner? Since I forgot to take a photo before packaging it all up to have to visit Mrs M Makes blog to see it!
