BSBP Update!

I can now reveal what was in my previous teaser post!

Here are the beads that I sent to my partner, Andra.

I sent her sort of a tropical mix. Included are denim blue glass pearls, grey freshwater pearls, some crushed velvet ribbon, some of my deep blue patinaed chain and coordinating clasp, lampwork glass rondelles, swarovski crystals, gold tierracast charms of various sea creatures and some gorgeous handmade ceramic shell pendants from Yvi at easyfindings.

I really hope that Andra is inspired by this mix and I can’t wait to see what she creates with them!


In return, Andra sent me this bead soup!

A colourful, Spring mix!

I’ll admit, at the moment I am stumped with what to make, but I will think of something. I just need some time to play with them. This 4 day weekend coming up should be just that time!

Thank you so much to Andra for the beads and of course, to Lori, for organizing ALL OF THIS.

I will be back on April 13 to reveal what I have made. Stay tuned!

    yummy stuff in both soups! though I am just a tiny bit more drawn to the soup you sent because of the unusual denim blue colour of metal findings. As for the soup you received those marble beads are ingenious.

    thanks for your comment, Ana! Yes, the marble beads are very interesting. The shape of them has me quite inspired.

    Heey, I am glad the marble beads have inspired you! I am sure you will make something gorgeous out of them! I can’t want today :P
    I was in a spring-like period at a time, a lot of greens and roses, and violets…don’t know exactly why :D I guess I still am in a violet (with all shades and nuances:D) period :)))

    Your bead soup inspired me great, I love the color combination!! I’ve worked a few full days at my project and I am very proud with what I came up!

    Heyyyy Andra! I still haven’t used the marble beads! They are such a great shape, I want to show that off somehow, but it hasn’t come to me yet. lol I do love them, though! I can’t wait to see what you do with your soup! :)
