Canadian Soup

Deb has emailed - her parcel of Bead Soup ingredients has arrived in Canada! I have to say, I am very impressed with how quickly it has got there. There is still one UK parcel that I posted at the same time that is yet to arrive at it's destination! I showed you a teaser last week, but now I can show you more details....

 I made Deb a copper Lovebird clasp (you probably guessed I'd make the clasp!), and a smaller Lovebird charm and heart charms to match. There's also a reel of patinaed copper wire and some hammered rings in there in case she didn't have any copper wire. I am sorry to say that I don't know the name of the maker of the lampwork bead, but I love the swirls of blue and ivory inside the clear glass. The ivory spacer beads are ones a friend who no longer makes beads made me a few years ago, and the blue spacers are Mindy Macgregor's. And a final touch to bring it all together, a length of deep turquoise silk ribbon from Marsha Neal. 

I'm really looking forward to seeing what Deb makes with her ingredients - you can see what she thought of her goodies here. And I'm really looking forward to seeing what the postman brings me!


  1. How gorgeous to open a parcel like that. Lovely!

  2. It is even more impressive in real life - I hope my parcel gets there soon - I think we mailed about the same time - and I too am impressed with the speed to which the post office on both sides of the water got my package to me. I have my goodies sitting out and I sort of have an idea but it changes each time I look at it.

  3. What great Soup! I can't wait to see what she makes!


Thank you for leaving a comment. I read every one and will do my best to get back to you!
