My Bead Soup Arrived!

Well, it actually arrived a while ago, but I'm on vacation so I haven't been able to blog about it until now.  Our computer in Florida died, so I'm getting used to this new laptop which seems to have a mind of it's own.  But Anyway....  This fabulous package arrived from my swap partner Betty for the Bead Soup Blog hop! It was wrapped up and tied with this beautiful red bow and nestled carefully in this very cool dish made from an inverted bottle which I'm assuming Betty made since I know she works with glass. Betty created this adorable tropical lampwork fish pendant just for me.  It's so cute, I Love it! Enclosed was also a write up on Kazuri beads which I've never seen up close and personal, so I couldn't wait to see what other surprises may be awaiting in her package.
Well, a Very delightful surprise indeed! I opened it up and found a treasure trove of beautiful delights that I know I'm going to enjoy creating with.
Such a great mix of glass, ceramic and wooden beads with a very ethnic feel which is one of my favorite themes to work with.  Betty also included some copper beads, some crystal bicones, some beading cord and I Love the copper star toggle!  Thanks so much Betty for this very inspiring mix!
