The Beads Arrived For Cup of Bead Soup!

WOW!  I got the beads from LeAnn of Summers Studio today for this month's Cup of Bead Soup and wheeeee I'm going to have some FUN!

Look what she sent:

Holy smokes.  I first pinged right in on the 3D blossom pendant -- I mean, OMG, right?  How could you NOT love that?  Anything you make out of that will be treasured.

Then the heart.  I love hearts.  There's not enough love in the world, and hearts don't have to be pink or red, am I right?  And I love the lines that radiate out like a sun, as if the love is just going out everywhere.

This will also be my first experience with bronze metal clay.  Wowza.  First, I love dragonflies.  Second, would you LOOK at the detail of the flower piece?

To say I'm a happy camper is putting it lightly.

Want some of these pieces yourself to play along?  Then visit these sites:

  7. Lori, I am so pleased that you are happy with your cuppa. I especially like how you describe the heart. I haven't thought of them exactly that way and now you've brought me a new story! Thank you.

  8. What fun pieces. I am sure something even more beautiful will come from these.

  9. Each bead is a work of art, and I'm sure your design will be as well. Can't wait to see it.
