What I got for my bead soup!

Just thought I'd post about what I got for my Bead Soup from my partner in California, Cherrie Fick.

I'm pretty sure this will be a challenge for me simply because I usually make supplies, and struggle greatly with putting anything together.  This is why I join the Bead Soup Party, really.  It forces me to confront my fear of decision-making in the making of jewelry!  And because I'm working with things I may not have ever have thought to choose for myself, it broadens my horizons considerably.

Cherrie sent me a lovely selection of stones, bones, ceramic and glass and a lovely clasp by my dear missficklemedia.  I already have a couple of ideas which will present these in a different way!  I will publish another altered photo as a sneek peak when I get a little closer to finishing the piece.

 Please note the extraordinary and subtle range of yellows, ochres, oranges, reds and browns that she has sent for me to try.  Lovely!   Included are ceramic ( the flower focal), glass, bone, carnelian, agate and copper.  Can't wait to get at it as I know it will take me quite a bit of time to do the components justice...

Many thanks, Cherrie!  Hope you can work with what I sent!
