bead soup ingredients

These are the wonderful bead soup ingredients that my partner Rhea sent. I love the dusty turquoise with the copper beads. I immediately knew what I wanted to do with the focal bead, and then...I discovered that the hole of the bead was closed in the middle of the bead. The bead reamer did not make a dent, so now I'm in for a real challenge. Think I will look at the beads for a while.

I am sending you to visit Rhea's blog where you will find
some great photos of the beads I sent her.

Thank you Lori for all the work you put into this wonderful project.
Visit Lori's Site to meet the other participants.

Lori... hope you are feeling better.
