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.


  1. Wow! Your beads look great. I am so sorry about the extra challenge I unintentionally handed you! I honestly had no idea... I hope you are still able to figure something out!

  2. It will be lovely, Cory! Love the earth tones running through the turquoise, and the matching beads. Can't wait to see what you do with these!

  3. The soup is fabulous. Those colors are really great. I hate that you found a problem with the focal, but sometimes an extra challenge really does give you a chance to think outside the box. I'm sure whatever you create will turn out fabulously! Best of luck in finding a solution.

  4. Those are gorgeous stones. I love turquoise. You will make something just scrumptuous out of it.

  5. A hint on that bead -- super glue! Or, take a piece of wire that when bent in half, will fit in the hole. Bend the wire so it makes a V, but hold it together (so it's not a V -- you following me?) and put a dab of glue on the end. The V will open up and help support the bead.

    Have fun!

  6. Hi Cory - I'm blog hopping around and visiting the blogs on Lori's BSBP. You've a beautiful blog and I like your soup. I'll be back to check out what you're going to do with your challenge.

  7. Gorgeous beads, I can't wait to see what you come up with for the BSBP!
