Bead Soup Ingredients I've Sent

Another Bead Soup Party is coming up. This time there won't be a blog hop. We are just going to swap beads, and if anyone wants to, then they can put them on their blog. I plan to do that.

I gathered some ingredients for my partner. Here is what I came up with.
Since I've been so much into buttons, the first thing I picked out were these cute things. There are three of them that I just stacked and wired them together with this wire:

This is some old telephone wire I've talked about before. You really can't tell in this photo, but it is white and gray.
For my birthday last year, my sister sent me some fun stuff. I had a couple of these lockets, and so decided to share. Besides I think they go very nicely with some of the other ingredients I'm sending.
Like this chain.
And these flowers.
And this wooden flower.

Here are some glass hearts.
Then I threw in a little bit of black.
Then stir with some fiber.
Not sure if she'll use this bow, but I made her a card and tacked it onto a card. I think I might make some more of these bows, there were fast and easy to make.
Then I threw in some e-beads
This is one of two clasps I'm sending. The other one is a small one to match the chain.

Let's see what kind of soup she comes up with.


  1. You put together all sorts of pretty and interesting components for your swap! Looks like a lot of fun!

    1. Thank you, I just kept going through my stash, and seeing stuff I thought would be fun. It's pretty eclectic, so it will be interesting to see what happen...
