I've recieved my gorgeous soup from Tero... here it is!Beads
Some lovely bookmarks... I have never seen such pretty shapes over here in the UK - they are gorgeous and so unusual! The middle one is a chinese dragon!
Next...isn't he cute?!... a little tinkly owl bell!
Domino pendants! Again, I have never seen these over here, can't wait to get stuck in crafting with the blank ones she's sent!
Multicoloured glass seed beads and larger round beads, and a set of mixed blue and gold glass beads. So many, and such beautiful colours!
Next...my favourite bead... be prepared to squeal in delight...
Aaah!!! A little hedgehog. Isn't he so adorable! Those little feet!!!
Not sure what these beads are made of, but they shine so beautifully. They remind me of chilli pepper shapes, and the colour is like beetle shells. I am so intrigued to know how these are made!
And next... a HUGE bag of clear, silver lined seed beads! They shine so beautifully, and I'm always running out of clear toned beads, so they will definately come in handy!
This ceramic celtic knot bead is so cute - I love the colours, and it has a really satisfying weight to it!
Lovely headpins! Our local bead shop has only flat, pin ends, so these are so welcome! They remind me of tiny jellies or trifles!
And look at all these gorgeous charms, owls, celestial, flowers, and a sewing machine! So cute!
Lots of lovely earring findings - beautifully detailed and so unusual! Can't wait to get stuck in playing with these!
Look at ALL these glass beads! I love them! So many beautiful colours!
These three are my favourites - little conjoined twin beads!
And some lovely clay beads. Did you make these, Tero? They're beautiful! Especially that rose!
Three lovely wire wrapped glass beads. The wrapping is so neat!
Sterling silver earwires - another difficult thing to get round here, and so useful for sensitive-eared friends and swap partners.Crafted items
Gorgeous painted ceramic bead earrings - these are so cute and the colour is lovely!
And this cloud necklace. Wire wrapped with glass "raindrops". Tero thought she'd seen this on my wists, but I don't remember seeing it. But it suits my taste so well - I have a bit of a thing for clouds (it was one of my themes in the pick and choose swap) and this one is so cute! I love the little cow-lick curl! Off out this evening wearing it!
Thanks so much Tero, you're an amazing swap partner! I love your soup! Edited to Add:
Went into the study to upload pics, and when I came back, look who'd been investigating my soup!!
