My Bead Soup for Melissa [Bead Soup Blog Party 2012]

Hello all and welcome back to The Cabby Crafter!

A few blogs ago, I shared with you the good news that I was randomly chosen to be part of
Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party.  Yay!
I sent out my bead soup for my dear partner Melissa just in time last Jan. 31 and the USPS certified mail today confirmed that it has arrived its destination.

This was my bead soup for her.  TADA!

Lori, the diva of the Bead Soup Party, required us to send a focal bead and a special clasp. 
I gave Melissa one of my polymer clay floral pendants that was set on a brass filigree.  I tried to make an original wire wrapped clasp but it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to be and instead, I sent her 2 brass toggle clasps.  I also included coordinating cloissone beads, red beads, german crystals and brass bead spacers.

She will be receiving a special handmade card as well.  I am glad to have found a new friend who is a
very talented artist.

I can't wait to find out what she'll make out of these.
Visit The Cabby Crafter again to see what her bead soup was for me... I'm so eager to find out too.

Have a great weekend!

♥  Michelle

Adorable soup - love it. I've been through everyone's blogs and so far you're the first swapper to send cloisonne beads. I love the color palette!

I just sent you an email...I did get it yesterday, but wasn't able to actually look at it until very late! I absolutely am thrilled with everything - the focal is gorgeous, and I have always loved cloisonne! You are a sweetie!
