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.
