Bead Soup Has Arrived

What could possibly be better than sitting by the ocean listening to the waves wash away any cares I might have?  Well to be doing that, and writing about something else I love...beads.

I received my soup from my partner Regina Santerre of Regina's Writings a couple of weeks ago and it killed me that I couldn't take the time to post about it.  What a yummy mix! (Click on the link if you'd like to check out her blog and maybe get a peak at what I sent her.)

I absolutely love the colors and warm metals she picked out for me. Copper and brass are real favorites of mine...and Red, who doesn't love red? The day it arrived I had dragonflies on my mind.  I was trying to come up with how to make one in copper.  Imagine my surprise and delight when I opened my package to find a lovely handmade clay dragonfly pendant by Golem Design Studios!
I immediately got sidetracked from what I was doing and started to play a little, thinking of what I was going to come up with. I'm not quite sure yet , but I think I have a plan for that sweet little clasp that's a little different from the norm. Wish me luck!  This is going to be quite a challenge for me and so much fun in the process.

Tomorrow it's supposed to rain so I'm going to take a little break from soaking up the ocean's energy and check out a fabulous local bead store here in Virginia Beach to see if I can find something equally amazing to complement my soup. Have a great week!
