I Love My Bead Soup!!

My bean soup arrived today. I tenderly opened the package with excitement and a little trepidation. You see, I'm a newbie. There were six packets of beads, silk scraps, focal points and clasps. In addition, there was a vintage rhinestone necklace and a key watch! I was so pleased. thank you, Lauren Potts. Here's a photo of the lot.

Lauran included a note with each bead etc. named. That taught me a lot. Here are some close ups.

These are riverstone round beads and a  lampwork focal bead that is exquisite!

This is a hand dyed silk scrap, Russian amonazite rounds and genuine pearl beads.

This photo shows antique brass filigree pieces, vintage green glass beads and a druzzy agate pendant.

I love natural stones. Actually, the other side of the agate is even prettier!

Here's the vintage rhinestone necklace and the watch key.

Hand dyed purple silk wrap and a set of lampwork beads to die for.

I can't wait to jump into these projects. My creative juices  are flowing.
Once Lauren gets her soup, I'll put up a picture of what I sent her. I don't want to spoil the surprise. I did my beginner best on her soup. I hope she likes it.
