Soup sent to my Bead Soup Partner, Mary Harding

Hello friends!

Well today I hit the ground running. Does that ever happen to you? I feel like if I don't do my tasks every day the world leaves me behind! Yikes! So much to blog about! So how about the fun stuff??? :D Since Mary has already received her bead soup from me I can reveal some of the shots I took :) Wanna see what she got? Ok so if you checked out the flickr photo pool you will notice that I crammed these photos into 2 shots. Why? Well I am one of those people that doesn't have a paid account so I needed to save image space :(

Here is the whole collection. Sorry about the lighting. This is what happens when there is no sunlight for photos ;) As you can see I sent a lovely sampling of stuff and things :D I sent: some leather cord, nylon cord, Hilltribe silver findings and beads, some nifty rubber o's and eights(My ELEMENTS) , aluminum jump rings, and a SUPER set of my lampwork beads called "Carnival Peel". I named this set because the shapes remind me of a carnival and the colors remind me of fruit peels, that and it sounds hip and trendy together ;)

Here is a closer view of the lampwork beads. From left to right: glass headpins on copper wire, discs, spiraly and glittery spacers, wing dings, vortex flower, tri-flower trumpet, and a daisy button clasp.

Here was the start to her envelope. I snapped a pic when I just had her daisy and name drawn. Don't want to give away the addresses to our secret hide outs ;)

Here you can see the findings bit a little better. The colors are much more brilliant than they appear. Must be the plastic bags ;)

Here is a 4block of the tri-flower trumpet. I just LOVE this new style bead. I will blog about the inspiration for it's creation in another post, so stay tuned for that :D

Since I didn't have 4 shots of the Vortex Flower you get to see 3 separate pictures.  Here is the back side.

The front. Here you can see the glittery orange on the outside and the glittery yellow 4 colors from the outside. If I wouldn't have told you, you probably wouldn't have known. The orange color looks like shimmery gold fish scales and the yellow looks like glittery pineapple flesh. SO cool :D

Here's the side shot. Again you can really see the glitter on the outer edge! I'm so glad it showed up so well :)

Well thanks for stopping by to see Mary's goodies!

See you soon!

Much love,

Beadbug said...

Wow what great booty :) I am sure she is thrilled with it.

Genea said...

Cindy, Yes, you will as soon as I get it. Infact I have not checked the mail today :D

Beadbug, Thanks! Yes, she left me the sweetest e-mail after opening her package. That makes me so happy to send people stuff they love! :D

Thanks Lori!

I just made another today! The other 2 I had on hand sold on Friday before I could get them online ;)

Thanks! It was so much fun to make and Mary is just delightful!

You sent me wonderful beads, Genea. I love every one of them. Am thinking of ideas and will get started soon. Again, thank you so much.

Genea said...

Yay! I'm so glad you like them Mary! I can't wait to see what you make :D I LOVE everything you sent me! Especially the personalized stamped copper bead caps! You know growing up NOTHING was monogrammed with my name until you made me my special caps!! :D *big hugs* to you!
