Bead Soup arrived!

Well, I've been busy for the past week since the Summer BI Studio Tour ended but I did get  my Soup in the mail from Holly Westfall.  She sent some wonderful goodies to play with. 
This is what they look like with all the items tagged. 
Love the copper!
Fantastic earthy scheme here, don't you agree?

This is what they look like after I removed the tags.  

I will definitely have fun playing with these beauties.  Working with wire elements is not my usual style, so this is definitely out my 'working' zone for now.  But not to fear...I am creative and the juices are already flowing on what to make with this.  Actually, I may make more than one piece!  Thank you so much Holly!!!  I love these pieces and your copper work is absolutely incredible.  

Now, for what I sent to Holly...
It's easy to see that we are both playing with similar color schemes.  More proof that creative minds can connect even before we do make contact with each other.  Love that!

So stay tuned to see what I come up with here.  And don't forget to check out Holly's work and her fabulous blog Silver Rose Designs.  You will probably stay there for a while, so grab a cuppa... She has the most wonderful photos of flowers in addition to her fabulous style of jewelry.  Have fun.
