Bead Soup - Goodies for Amanda Davie
The first phase of the Bead Soup Blog Party has begun. I shipped out my package this morning to my partner Amanda Davie. If you have not seen Amanda's Etsy store & "What's On The Wall" you need to check it out. She is an amazing multi-media jewelry designer and artist. Attached are photos of what I gathered to send Amanda. I wanted to think out of the box, so a ready made pendant would not do. It seemed so uninspiring for this talented artisan.
The "Soup" is a mix of vintage carnelian beads, yellow agate, amazonite, turquoise, aquamarine, citrine drops, carnelian drops, bone flowers, resin crackle beads, Czech glass hearts and one Raku bead.
Lastly, we have a few miscellaneous items: another vintage key (I love keys), three small antique kewpie dolls (approximately 1 1/2") and a strand of Czech glass tortoise shell beads.
Let me know what you think of Amanda's "Bead Soup". I hope she likes it.
