And would you check out those vintage nailhead beads in the top right photo? Because awesome. I am so stoked about the great variety of texture and color to work with in this soup that I would almost skip a day at the beach to play with it. One thing is for sure, I won't be staying up all night before this reveal, because I'm already jonesing to get started!
She also sent along some handmade paper and fabric beads in resin that she makes, and when I say I need about 40 or 400 more I'm not kidding. They are fantastic, and I've already put them in an inspiration bowl on my table. The beads pictured are just a sample of the plethora of goodies Elizabeth sent...because I'm a bad (read that as stupid busy) partner and I need 4 more hours in a day right now. Don't worry though, I'll be using at least some of everything including the tiny brilliant orange drops. Because Yumtown!
I was late mailing out my soup because of course I was. If there is a rule in sight I'm going to break it by accident. But hey look! Shiny!
Elizabeth is like me in that we don't often (or ever) string jewelry because we are seed beaders, so in the spirit of presenting a challenge I sent her this~
And then because we don't often (or ever) string jewelry because we are seed beaders I sent her this in the spirit of Yay, comfort zone!
It's a good thing she isn't afraid of a little color.
