Start mixing!

It’s time to start mixing … bead soup style.

A very special package arrived in the mail yesterday, and … Eek! It felt like Christmas all over again!

You know I can only be talking about a certain bead soup package 😉

Niky of Silver NikNats sent the most beautifully packaged assortment of special goodies.  As soon as you opened the lid … you knew you were in for a treat! … (and that is before even realizing the contents!)

First up … a hand written message on a gorgeous note card featuring an image of her very own vintage typewriter – how cool is that?! I totally love it!


Then … upon delving in,  the ribbon untied, and the black tissue paper pulled back … what was inside?  Little exquisitely wrapped black & silver parcels … looking so beautiful and perfect together, I {almost} didn’t want to open any of them!


Got over that feeling pretty quickly, and was so excited to see what each special package had inside ….


The first packet I opened up was the focal bead and it is GORGEOUS! Purples and greens made by Moogin Beads.

The next one I opened was one of Niky’s handmade clasps! (I was secretly crossing my fingers that she might send me one, ever since the first day when we were partnered up and I saw her work on her blog!)

Next came some beautiful lampwork spacers by Laura Sparling, some pearls, pink beads, roman glass (so cool!) beads and lampwork head pins by Earth Shine beads

The last two packages contained more of Niky’s amazing handiwork … an awesome coin bead (created out of six pence coins) and some fancy headpins (which I totally love!)

I am so excited about all of these gorgeous goodies, but can’t help to feel totally anxious & stressed out! I sure hope to be able to come up with a design (or two!) that will do them all the justice they deserve!


Thank you so much, Niky!!
