My Bead Soup Ingredients Are Here

My Soup mix arrived from Lorelei.  
She hopes I like what she picked for me.
 Lorelei I love it! 
I appreciate that you wrote what it was that you sent.
I apologize for not doing the same.

My soup consist of:
Pale blue cotton cording
Silver crimp end clasp
Silver plated flower button
Terra cast ceramic Bee pendant
by Spirited Earth 
 Flower faceted glass rondelles.
Lamp-work beads by Blue Seraphim 
A pretty string of Blue glass beads 

Part time beader here.
I hope I got the ingredients  right. 
Thanks for comments and the help ladies. 
So I do apologize for not being up on 
what's what. 

Now let's see how long I need to let this simmer.
  And what other ingredients I will  need to add 
before it's ready!
So check back later.

Bead Soup I Sent...

To my Bead Soup partner, Lorelei
 She mentioned she liked earth tones
 Old items like key and buttons. 
I didn't have any that I thought were bead soup worthy.
But we weren't suppose to tailor it exactly. 
But send some ingredients that hopefully would inspire.
Can't wait to see what she creates.
The link to all the participants is on the right hand side 
of this blog if you wish to check them out.

Charm Swap

I personalized all 8 of the Charms with the ladies first initial.
For Cindy's January Charm Swap.
Displayed them on a mat board die shape.
So they can reuse for a future project.
Hand stamped some designs
I went with a funky whimsical theme.
I hope the ladies will like them.

Stick Pin Charm Swap

For a Stick Pin/Charm swap I signed up for
 with Allyson we were asked to do a stick pin 
with a matching charm.
I made a bonus stick pin for the ladies in my group.
And my matching charm says Create.
I decided to present them on this Sizzix flower tag die.
It made for a simple and clean presentation.
For the Group of 8 ladies I made a Yellow set of 4 , 
a Purple set of two and a Blue set of two.
Now I have to decide which of these to keep 
and then send off the rest.
