My Bead Soup Arrived!!! :)

Yay!  It's here! It's here!!  :)  And it's SOOOOOOOOO pretty!  My partner, Mary Govaars, really sent me an awesome soup, and I already have SO MANY ideas!  You'll have to wait for the ideas (I can tell you I'll be creating multiple pieces, and most likely using stringing, weaving, and wire work.  :)  I can't wait!!!!) But, I can show you pictures of the pretties!  :)

Okay, here's the box and what came in the box (I love the red bubble wrap.  It's my favorite color! lol!)



And Mary had everything packaged all up in a cute bag, and wrapped in the brightest tissue paper:



She included a lovely card with details about the beads she sent, and with the most gorgeous picture of The Golden Gate Bridge at night:


So, on to the goodies!  :)

Mary sent me a BUNCH of gorgeous lampwork beads:

Blue Accent beads by Canyon Echoes, Green hollows and orange/green focal by LL Designs (I can't seem to find a link for them), and big focal bead by That Bead Girl

And a beautiful set of coordinating beads, including seed beads, chips, and some awesome coral discs:


So, the focal an the clasp (the 2 pieces I HAVE to use in my design!)

A simple and elegant sterling toggle, and a fabulous focal lampie by LL Designs.  It's more orange than red in real life :) 
And I've already started looking through my stash for more goodies to round out my plans:


So there it is!  The pretties I get to play with! :)

And here's a partial pic of what I sent to Mary:
The lampie is by Nancy Gant
