Tasty Ingredients for Bead Soup from Hello Gorgeous!

My package had arrived a few days ago, and I couldn't wait to tear it open!  I must say, Sue's just too generous for words - and she knows my weakness for candy!  Check out the surprises in the package!

Here we've got a Hello! British tabloid rag, a package of Percy Pigs, a Galaxy chocolate bar (which I'm told is the best chocolate), and a couple rolls of Love Hearts.  And, of course, not one - but two! - Bead Soups!  Take a look below!

The entree is full of beautiful gemstones and focal pendant and a gorgeous heart-shaped clasp, just too stunning to be worn on the back of the neck.  I have plans to feature the clasp more prominently as a pendant or off-centre focal piece.  I could hardly put them down - they feel good to the touch, with such positive energy around them!

And lo' and behold - a surprise soup!

These glowing earth-tone gemstones were a pleasant surprise!  I have a few beads in my own stash that are a colour match to the polished flourite, and some findings in antiqued bronze I had recently purchased on Etsy.  The white turquoise mosaic beads and dyed agate rings are already made into a necklace and earring set - but I can't show you yet!  Not until February 26th!

Sue has been very busy lately, busy helping her father with his ailing health, so she hasn't quite yet posted photos of the beads I had sent her.  I do recommend you to visit her blog and offer a kind "hello gorgeous" - it would make her smile!

I'm off to find more beads from my own stash to mix with these beauties.  The Galaxy bar's in the freezer for later, and the Love Hearts are being 'saved for later'.  The Percy Pigs, however, didn't last the day!  Sue and I have discussed a 'candy swap', because I'm told by a lot of my UK friends that there's yummy candy we're all missing out here "across the pond."  So far, Tootsie Rolls have been recommended - what else can I throw in there?

In the meantime - off to create!  Thanks again, Sue!  Grab a Bead Soup button below to show your love!
