 My bead soup arrived from Jodie Marshall yesterday.

Looks like it went through a lot to get here.

But inside

Was a Beautifully wrapped package.

With all the yummy soup contents.

Just look at that bed embroidered pendant! 


All the lampwork beads were made by Jodi. 

The copper ring and ball headpins handmade. 

This is one talented lady!

Copper chain,

Czech and Chinese glass beads along with Sterling beads 

and toggle clasp help round out this soup mix.

Delicious 😋 

Thank you so so much!

 My bead soup swap partner, Jodi Marshall received her

Bead soup that I sent today. 

So it is safe to now share the pictures I took of it.

Polymer clay faces I made some time ago,
Accented the ribbon on her package.

The ceramic focals came from an artist I found on Etsy. She lives in Spain.
 I was sweating it out that they would arrived on time. 
They did with one day to spare for the shipping out deadline.
I was going with a Bird theme since the reveal will be in April.
Spring time when the birds return.
The clasp is a Green Girl bronze toggle.
I added miscellaneous Czech beads, Toho seed beads, 
Angelite rondells, copper beads and findings, 
Looking forward to seeing what she creates!
