Let the Cooking Begin!

Both Bead Soup mixes have arrived.

So now my Bead Soup Blog Party partner Jennifer Reno, and I have received our beads. Bead Soup is an online event hosted by Lori Anderson of Pretty Things. We are matched with a partner chosen by Lori, and exchange beads, focals and clasps for our partners to create with and make beautiful jewelry. 

Here is what I sent to Jenny: 

An old steel key that I altered with patina and glaze.

The Soup Mix (Not included; some bead strands I bought at the last minute!)
I saw that she has used jasper, so I kind of dropped some jasper on her!
Jasper Focal and some upcycled jasper beads.

Here is the soup mix she sent me:

Pretty package.

She included a lovely card.

Can't tell the players without a score card!

Wonderful variety of colors and textures!

I love all the colors. I don't usually use such a wide palette in one piece, so I see at least another little suite of pieces. Sweet!

And if you have read the post below, our focus on life photo prompt for this week was flowers. How perfect!
