First, here is the bead soup I received from my partner Grace Rotenberg ~
It was a colorful mixture of milifloral glass beads, other glass beads, some ceramic beads, and a few metal components, including a piece from an old bracelet.
I added lots of wire, some other metal components, and satin rat tail cording and went to town creating some jewelry that I will be giving to an artsy friend. I was able to make a necklace, bracelet, and earrings for this set ~

I sent Grace some various pearl, glass, porcelain, and shell beads, with some vintage earrings thrown in for fun. I love to cut up vintage earrings and incorporate them into mixed media projects and jewelry, and since Grace makes beautiful steampunk style jewelry I thought she might be able to do the same. Can't wait to see what she creates!
