Bead Soup!

 Pretty boxes with goodies hidden inside!

I'm participating in my first Bead Soup Blog Party!
The lovely Lori Anderson is the creative genius
behind this beady extravaganza.

My partner is Paige Maxim of Paige Maxim Designs.

I couldn't wait to open the pretty little boxes
to see what goodies were hidden inside...

My Bead Soup Stash from Paige Maxim

It's so much fun to participate in a swap because you never know what you'll receive. Opening Paige's box was like Christmas in July!

Here's what I received...
A focal bead/tile made by Skye Jewels
Pewter Calla Lillies by Green Girl Studios
Copper Clasp by Sweet Bead Studio
Lampwork Glass Beads by Juls Beads
Vintaj Brass Bead Caps
An assortment of Swarovski Crystals
Funky jump rings
An assortment of rescued Goodwill chains
Semi-precious beads in pink and earth tones

But, that's not all.
In a little box labeled "Extras made by me"
I found these beauties!

Handmade beads from vintage lucite flowers by Paige Maxim

Aren't they wonderful?!

Check back on August 11th when we'll reveal
what we've made from our beautiful beads!
