Bead Soup Party Ingredients

It's almost time for the Bead Soup Party reveal day , this time, due to the huge sign up response, the reveal day needed to be split between several days. There will be 3 different reveal days,different participants work being shown on each of these days, allowing us time to view the amazing work ,without becoming overwhelmed and losing our places in the blog hops. This is something I seem to always do.

I was so fortunate to be paired with the amazing Cindy Wimmer of Sweet Bead Studio. She sent the soup ingredients in a beautiful jewelry bag..love it.

The ingredients are all metal..this is different from the other soups I've worked with..

These wonderful ingredients open up a world of possibilities..Patina or not, add color or stay in a neutral palette??????

The focal is a vintage silver tone brooch..it has tiny slits and openings where the designs has been raised..
I intend to use these for connecting bits, rather then drill or punch into it.
The clasp is a beautiful Shibuichi Green Girl piece..what's not to love about Green Girl..all her pieces are fabulous.
Please come back on July 28th, which is my reveal date, to see what I've created from the soup mix Cindy selected.

Wow, that is beautiful! I absolutely can't wait to see what you do with them. I bet Cindy knew that these would go great with your own beautiful components. I just know you are going to wow us all.
