7th BSBP Update: More Bead Soup!

The Bead Soup Blog Party is underway and many of the participants have received their bead soups.  I received a wonderful selection of beads from my bead soup partner Jayashree Paramesh of Nchantme.  Have I mentioned that I love her Silk Road Chandelier Drop earrings, featured on her blog?  They are just gorgeous.

I mailed out my soup to Jayashree about 2 weeks ago, but it was returned for insufficient postage. Arghhhh!  Apparently, the post office didn't wait until April/May to raise prices on their Priority Mail Stamps.  Anyway, I let Jayashree know via Facebook that I will resend the package ASAP.  I even threw in a few extra beads, since I felt bad that she had to wait longer for her bead soup.  When she received the bead soup, she said that she has enough soup for 2 people.  In today's mail, I received another package from Jayashree.......


She thought she didn't send me enough beads the first time.  The bag is ready to explode!


She even sent me more of those beautiful cracked agate teal rondelles!  In one of our email conversations, she mentioned that she had a tendency to work with gold or silver findings.  I sent her copper.  I have trouble staying away from copper.  She sends me gold findings!

Here is my original bead soup.

THANK YOU SO MUCH JAYASHREE!
