Finally, I was able to take some photos of the fabulous bead soup my partner Nicki sent to me a while ago.
Look at this treasure trove!
Nicki sent to me an international Bead Soup:
beautiful beads she found in a shop in France,
some big gems (red and green fire agate and others) she bought in Cologne (where she lives),
cute lampwork beads (artist unknown) from her favourite shop in Plymouth, USA, lacquered Chinese paper beads,
a variety of beads she bought at Michaels,
an adorable copper dragonfly charm from Summers Studio,
Susan Lenart Kazmer's Industrial Chic Charms,
some green nut beads,
a stunning lampwork egg from super talented Kelley Wenzel,
recycled sari ribbon...
.... drum roll...
...look at this!!!
A flower shaped brass with copper pendant she sawed out especially for me!
I LOVE it!!!
Nicki even found the perfectly matching clasp for it!
(She was kind enough to give me an extra pendant (beautiful ceramic pendant from Indian Creek Studios) in case I don't like the one she made for me... I don't have to tell you which one I'll choose for my bead soup necklace...! )
Please visit Nicki's blog, where you can find some pictures of the soup she got from me: http://nickisreef.blogspot.com
Thank you, Nicki! I am over the moon with everything you sent to me!!!
And I am sooo glad I have found another kindred spirit in you!
