Bead Soup Cafe #6

My beads have arrived - all the way from Australia. My partner this time is Tania Tebbit @ Glass, Craft & Artful Goodness. Tania creates wonders from glass and she made the focal just for me! I am feeling very special and I am grateful too.

This is my package:

Bead Soup Blog Hop #6: The Soup :: All Pretty Things

There is a beautiful focal, *my* focal, in some gorgeous wavy colours:

There is some more gorgeous glass:

And the most beautiful turquoise glass beads (you can tell Tania read about my love affair with turquoise):

Am I lucky or what?

Now I only have to finish my soup until day after tomorrow, as on Thursday we leave for vacation and competitions... I am not (too) worried, I have some ideas and all I need to do is to put them together, fingers crossed it will work!

Please come back on Saturday for the reveal - it'll be a loong charming and sparkly weekend!


  1. oh such pretty beads! and that focal is gorgeous - can't wait to see what you make with it :)

  2. What a beautiful collection...I would love to be in a bead soup group but have no idea how to get into one...I would love to share beads and findings...Can't wait to see what you wishes

    1. Thanks - re: bead soups - come play with us on the Facebook group and you'll find a challenge or another!

  3. Hey Alicia - glad you liked the soup - I made the turquoise beads as well - I love turquoise also - sometimes I just have to put the turquoise rods away to play with other colours, as they always seem to pop into my hands without me thinking.

    1. LOL - thanks, Tania, we probably have been some sort of sisters in another life :) They are all delicious!

  4. Beautiful beads. Waiting to see your creation now. I like what you did in your blog with this comment thing. And it was great idea posting it in FB. That is how I came here today. Good luck Alicia. Dita.

  5. Such pretties! Hope you don't stay up too late and head off to vacation bleary eyed. Enjoy, I know I will on Sat for the reveal.
