Bead Soup Blog Party Challenge

I received my package yesterday from Allison. I am so excited to get started.

I got a lovely red coral chunk focal & accent beads,
gemstones (looks like quartz),
turquoise colored shell chips,
black glass beads,
antiqued silver plated spacer bead & clasp

She also sent me a little bonus pack of black and red Indian glass mix (although she said I didn't have to use those). They were all wrapped up in a cute little flowered hanky and a little plastic case to put it all in :). Thanks Allison!!

Seed Bead Soup.......Ugh

I decided, that I should put aside my fear of learning to bead a cabochon.....
Simple enough, yes? So I thought until I went looking for my seed beads.
Oh what fun..........

Bead Soup Blog Party

Soon I'll get to find out who I'll be partnered with in the 4th bead soup blog party. There are 363 participants this time. I was amazed at the number of participants there are. This will be my first, can you tell I'm excited. I love to get new beads, all the better when the inspiration comes from a fellow bead artist. I'll get a focal, a clasp and some accent beads. I can't wait.
