Penny's bead soup

Last week I showed the bead soup I got from Penny. Now that my soup has reached its destination as well, I thought I'd show a pic of it too.

As usual when I make a bead soup there's a little bit of everything. It turned out to be a mixed metal soup too: "antique copper" clasp, anodized aluminium scales and roses, round bronze tags and "antique gold" links (2 sizes). Add to that sodalite and lava stone beads, ceramic buttons, tiny drop beads (Miyuki) and twin beads (Preciosa Ornela). Plus hand-dyed viscose/rayon gimp (i.e. the thread) and a likewise hand-dyed silk carrier rod. Oh, and a lampwork dolphin pendant.

Can't wait to see what Penny will do with this! Not least the carrier rod. I haven't even got around to using those myself yet so I know they can be challenging.

The big reveal/party date is March 3rd -- don't miss it!
