My soup went from simmer to sizzle!

My last photo of my bead soup beads was horrible, I admit it. But I took it quick and rushed. This one is better, although still inside as we've had rain for the past two days and it's dreary out. 
It had to be taken now because an idea needed to be played with. I had been thinking about what I wanted to do with these beads. The colors are pretty, right up my alley. I was having trouble with the clasp, as it's a full two inches in length. So I've been playing...
And although my reveal date isn't until August 11th, I've finished my designs!
They have been photographed as well and now you'll all just have to wait! 
Can't wait to see what Martha is doing with what I sent to her, and of course what everyone else is doing. 
This is such a fun challenge! 
Hope you have a great weekend!

Time to get creative...

I received my Bead Soup from my partner, Martha Aleo of Ornamento.
She has a much better picture of these on her blog, but I took these quick in an effort to get them posted! She has handmade the majority of these beads herself including the clasp. And if you recall, my two favorite colors are green and purple! I already have lots of ideas swirling around in my brain on what I'm going to design with these! 
Speaking of swirling...
I love this photoshop filter! This is a swirl of what I sent Martha to design with! I gave her a little bit of some of my favorites so I can't wait to see what she comes up with!! 
Going to enjoy the rest of this beautiful weather this weekend! More new things coming this week! I have some new lariat necklaces heading to Salon Odette in Middlebury. Photo's below. And I'm working on some more memory wire bracelets. Love those!
More new things coming!! Stay tuned!!
