It's Bead Soup!

 My beads from my bead soup partner, Hilary Frye of FryeStyle, have arrived!  I rushed out to catch the last of the sun and have pictures!
Here's the whole set, containing a lovely floral focal and textured toggle clasp and accent beads of Thai silver with some gorgeous lampwork, lucite teardrop beads, blue Czech glass rounds and pale opal pink crystal.
Here's a closeup of the silver elements.  I love the texture.
 Here's a closeup of the lampwork.  The  color shifted a bit here but the beads are still fantastic.
This is supposed to be a challenge and it will be.  I haven't done much with these shades of pinks and purples before and will be putting my thinking cap on. 


  1. Those are amazing colors I can't wait to see what you do with them. I also got my bead soup up on my blog today :)

  2. Yay! Time for some beading!

  3. Thank you, Hilary, for sending out a wonderful assortment! I'm going to start trying out ideas today! I can't wait to see what you have, Beadbug.

  4. Wonderful colours! Have fun!
