My BSBP package arrived today and I was thrilled to find so many lovely items. The first little bag held lovely silver plated beads and a very very cool clasp from Beadbox. Next came some wonderfully textured black lava beads from Bali-Beads. I have never seen lava beads before and I'm thinking hot hot hot - and how appropriate for a torch lover! Love them. There were a couple of other little bags with findings and a nice tassel. The very best package was the one of beads that my partner Sabrina made herself. Oh my. What a fabulous lampwork artist she is. I have never seen such beautiful precision. I was working with low light when I took these photos. I'll try to get some better close-ups of these jewels over the weekend. Please excuse me. I need to go drool over my beads! Thank you, Sabrina.
Look at the detail and precision in these beads! WOW!
