Bead Soup Blog Party 8- My Soup from Jael's Jewels!

Hello friends!

I am excited to share my amazing bead soup from Jael with you!

So you know how I like to show you photos just like you were there unwrapping it with me, right? Well I had so many I decided to go a collage in the order of how I opened the package so I could really do some close-up's of the amazing beads below :D I love how Jael made me packaging out of recycled magazines with sweet little notes :D

I received some beautiful batik fabric strips! Love batik fabric and these bright colors!

A beautiful Tierra Cast toggle clasp that is just perfect with Jael's beads!
Some strands of semi-precious stones: bone, coral, and turquoise.


The first package of beads I opened was the one that said "From my ocean to yours" Thank you gift. Isn't it wonderful?! I just love the waves and ocean surf with a sandy beach and shell accent. You can even see bits of glitter :D
The next bead in the box was this AMAZING heart!! I just love the huge size! Jael combined 2 of her styles in this heart just for me! Isn't it incredible?!

Here is the back side! I just love all of the intricate details!
Next were these amazing pair of wooden looking sun faced hearts! Just look at all of the amazing little details. The beads are so delicate with so much texture! I love the antique wood grain look!

 Even the back side is amazing! The cane looks like wood grain with little scratches and pits!

Next were these amazing egg shaped oval beads! WOW!! Just look at all of the colors, texture, and antiqued parts. Each one is a little masterpiece with details on every side!

Jael also sent me these amazing rounds!! Can you see the sparkles?! Wow did she spoil me rotten or what?! Now to dream up something amazing! I hope to be able to make some matching beads to compliment her work!

Now to brain storm!

See you soon!
