Let me start off by saying that I'm sorry to my Bead Soup partner, Rochelle. I've had her beads for a week now, but you know how life likes to get in the way of the things that you really want to be doing; which is working on my Bead Soup. So, without further ado here is what Rochelle http://acreativechelle.blogspot.comhttp sent to me:
I adore the focal pendant and bead that she sent, and the copper clasp is right up my alley. I am also very excited by the dark blue seed beads. They have a beautiful gold center which is hard to see in the photo. When I put everything out to photograph it, one thought kept going through my head... Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil. It's a concept that is still rolling around in my noggin, I'll have to see where it takes me.
Now, if you've visited her blog you've seen what I sent to her (and if you haven't ... GET OVER THERE...). Just to recap and let you know where I got my stash, here are Rochelle's ingredients:
Golem Design Studio http://golemstudio.com/. The clasp is a Green Girl clasp and I purchased it and all of the Czech beads at Lima Beads http://www.limabeads.com. I also got the Rainbow Snakeskin Agate and the peridot pave round there. I got the green dyed jade and the blue lace agate at Beads & Honey http://www.etsy.com/shop/BeadsAndHoney?ref=shop_sugg, one of my all time favorite places to get gemstones. The eggplant and olive bead mixes came from Glass Garden Beads http://www.glassgardenbeads.com/. All of the metal findings came from Yukidesigns http://www.etsy.com/shop/yukidesigns. I'm ashamed to say I can't remember where I got the green glass beads on the spoon. I think that's everything. If I missed something, drop me a comment and I'll try to find out where I got it.
And there you have it. My ingredients are simmering and I working on adding just the right spices and flavorings. So, stop back by on August 11 to see what I've cooked up. Until then....Happy Creating.
