Holy Bead Soup, Batman!

Today I would like to reveal the very handsome lot of beads I recently received from my Bead Soup Blog Party partner, Kitty Bozzini.  She was incredibly generous with what she sent, and many bead lovers / jewelry makers likely already know her as both a talented lampwork artist and owner of the on-line shop Stinky Dog Beads.  Trust me, her shop is well worth checking out - especially if one likes artisan beads and Czech glass.  I feel I am quite the lucky person to have been matched with Kitty for this  blog hop.  (Thank you very, very much Lori Anderson!)   And not just because she sent me gorgeous stuff but because in reading her emails I can tell she is, foremost, a lovely person.  I apologize for the somewhat blurry and dark photos.  I truly need to invest in a new camera and soon.

The package

Very sweet card

The goodies!
Czech glass chain & coppery brassy seed beads
Silk Shibori ribbon & woolywire
Lampwork flower button & rondelle by Kitty, Czech glass, clay discs
Loads of Czech glass!
Lampwork owl, spacers and hollow spikes by Unicorne glass beads, brass chain, gemstone chain
Now do you see why I believe I am very lucky?  I have a kabillion ideas already.  Okay....maybe more like ten or so.  However, with this much variety and this many stunning options, I am certain many more designs will come to mind in the upcoming weeks.  Thank you again, Kitty!  It is time to start creating.


  1. Boy, am I excited! This is going to be interesting. I cannot wait to see your creations!
