Bead soup party beads sent

My bead soup partner emailed she's received her mix ..so here are some photos of what I sent to Nancy Peterson of Beading from the Heart blog.Nancy works with seed beads so I gave her a choice of focals..this Bee is a cabochon..also shown are Indonesian cream glass triangles and melon beads, 4mm faceted blue greens, and opaque creams,picasso druks, assorted earth toned ceramic beads,melons and rounds, handmade by me, ceramic focals and czech leaf and big faceted whiskey bead.

In case Nancy decided not to use the cabochon as a focal I include a second bee , a pendant.


I loved how this combination of glazes worked so well together that I'm compelled to recreate it for myself.

Fun idea... printmakers do a similar exchange were everyone in the groups gets one print of an edition. Nice collection you sent.
