Bead Soup Arrives!!!

I feel so lucky to have been one of the people who was picked by the Random Generator to participate in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Hop--especially so since I did not participate last summer.  But my luck does not stop there.  I then had the fabulous good fortune to be paired up with the one and only MissFicklemedia.  How great is that!!!

I am featuring a photo show today of what Shannon sent me.  When I opened the package I was thrilled.  Poetic and beautiful came to mind.  Here is what I saw.  My photo ode to bead soup Shannon.  Thank You So Much!!!

It didn't take a minute for me to see the beauty of these.  I was taken by the colors and the delicacy of all of what she sent.  A bit of a stretch for this chunky beader.

I opened up the bead package first and out came these little beauties.  I am not sure the delicate colors come true on your monitor but believe me they are spectacular.

The focal.  I just love the two tiered bead cap in dark blue and raw copper on top of this teal bead.  All wire wrapped in the most perfect circles of copper.

An ancient rustic round loop chain. Love this style of circles and the larger size.

An exquisite set of findings.  I can't get over how tiny and exquisite the eye pins are.  They are making a creation in front of my eyes.
An ensemble I put together of what Shannon sent so you can see the range of colors and how well they go together.

Thank you so much Shannon.  I am going to have such a wonderful time beading!!!
