An envelope from Nancy arrived, and (proving miracles do happen) I managed to restrain myself long enough to take a picture of the lovely packaging:
|Ooh, lucky me - two packages!|
And then I opened them up to find these!
|I wish my photography skills were good enough to show the luster on |
the lampwork - it's luscious!
|Look at the different gemstones! Look at the fantastic details on the lampwork rounds! |
Look at the delicious Bali silver! Wipe your chin, because I know you're drooling!
Not one soup, but two delicious mixtures of gorgeousness, both built around lampwork beads by Julia Cannon. Bless her heart, she sent two soups, because she was worried I wouldn't have enough to work with from just one package. Either of these would have been perfectly grand. The two together? That's enough beads to roll around in like Scrooge McDuck.
After I picked my jaw back up off the floor, I had to laugh. Why? Because I came THIS CLOSE to sending Nancy a focal by Julia Cannon! Yep, I knew Nancy and I were the perfect partners.
I did tell Nancy that if we ever had the chance to bead shop together, it would be a toss-up as to whether we'd enable each other into spending way too much money, or whether we'd be arm wrestling over the same strands of beads.
So, if I didn't build the soup I sent Nancy around a JulsBead, what did I send?
Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait to see what she makes with these!
