The Beads Have Arrived and They are AWESOME!

Yesterday, I received my bead soup mix and I LOVE IT! - I can't stop looking at them.....  They are some of the most beautiful beads I have ever seen.  The beads Jean selected for me are elegant and sophisticated, especially the focal made by Kim Miles.  The layers and details of the purple flowers are stunning.  The beads are the kind you put on your wish list and daydream about.  They remind me of a beautiful summer day.    Thank you Jean, your eye for beauty is impeccable.   

I started working on sketches and layouts of what I want to create.  So far, I have put together one of the beads and I will show you the before and after.   This bead has beautiful ridges of plum and lavender wrapped around a translucent center of soft summer blue and green.  I have added two sterling silver bead spacers to each end.   

I will post more before and after of the beads as I begin working on them.  

Thanks again Jean!

I hope you are inspired to create something beautiful.

Talk to you soon,
