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!!


  1. Oh! Lovely pics Cindy! I'm thrilled you like what I sent, and can't wait to see what you make! The little hankie is from an Amish grocery store nearby. My niece used them to decorate the little "favor" boxes for her guests at her wedding. They had a few left over, and gave them to me. I didn't know they were from the Amish store 'til Mom took me out there for lunch last week. Love the way you laid out the beads for the photo. Have fun!

  2. The colors are so bold. I am sure she will make something beautiful.

  3. Bold colors - I'm sure you will come up with something special! Can't wait for my beads to arrive:-)

  4. Lovely bead soup ingredients! Can't wait to see what you cook up!

  5. That coral is beautiful- you're going to have so much fun!


  6. Oh neat! And what a pretty handkerchief! I have my grandmothers old ones.
