Soup's Simmering for Pretty Things Bead Soup Blog Party

My Bead Soup from Sarah Goode arrived last week! Today is the first opportunity I have had to update this blog because I have been rather pre-occupied with a beautiful piece of Amber (more about that soon!) and my friend Eve Marshall's website.

So here is what Sarah sent me.
A combination of Swarovski Pearls, Glass Beads and Rhinestones. The Focal is a beautiful Sparkly piece and there is a magnetic clasp too! And a generous helping of silver plated chain.
This is going to be interesting... Sarah has set a challenge! A big one! None of these items are my usual components so I am TOTALLY out of my comfort zone. Not complaining!  This is the whole point of receiving a stash from someone else. You have to work with something new and make your creative brain work hard! 

My reveal date is 6th April.Watch this space...

And now I can show you what was in the soup I sent Sarah. 

It includes some of my favourite beads Turquoise, Corals & Freshwater Pearls. There is a good handful of Shell and Tibetan Silver in there too plus a couple of other secret ingredients! And a Turquoise and Heart wire wrapped Focal.

Let the fun begin! :-)


  1. I love both of the soups, i love all things sparkly, it loks like you are going to have so much fun!!! I love turquoise and silver too! I think she is going to have a blast with what you sent as well!

    1. I am really looking forward to the fun Robin :-) Lots of ideas and I have finally started using my drawing pad and started sketching some designs.

      Thanks for stopping by.
