My bead soup finally finished traveling and found it's way to my mailbox!  This is my very first BSBP and I was paired with the very talented Traci Zeller  She lives in Canada and mailed the bead soup she put together for me 2 days before I sent my mix to her.  I took about 10 business days and she received what I sent her.
I made the pendant and added snakeskin agate and brown fresh water pearls with a copper flower toggle to the mix. 

I love the mix that Traci sent me, it presents me with some challenges but that is a big part of this entire process.
Traci sent me a very eclectic mix of beads.  There is a ceramic focal bird by Lisa Boucher that I love. I have  several ideas simmering about how to use it, especially with the double toggle clasp.   I do not normally do multiple stands so that adds to the challenge.  She also sent some lovely faceted moss agates, ceramic beads, a Czech glass bead and two bead spacers. 

I am so excited to finally get working with my wonderful bead soup!
Come back on March 3rd when we all do the big reveal.


  1. The pendant you made your partner is fabulous! Such gorgeous work! loving the bead soup you received - really looking forward to seeing what you create.

  2. I'm so glad you finally have soup! Can't wait to see what you create!

  3. I love your pendant- I'm just learning to work with metal and that is very cool.
