As a reminder, late last month, I signed up for the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party.
You can read more about it here

I’d like you all to meet my Bead Soup Blog Party Swap Buddy, Darlene Fortier!  Darlene owns Darlicious Rejuvenations and in her own words she “creates one-of-a-kind recycled and salvaged jewelry with a hint of bike.”

You can see her her Etsy Store –
Or… you can follow her blog –

Today, my bead soup came in the mail from her.  I have a couple of ideas on what I’ll make with it, but my reveal date is on March 30, so…  keep an eye on this blog and you can see it then!

It includes
*A sterling silver clasp
* A lampwork bead by Kevin O’Grady
* Matte AB seed beads
*  Antique steel cut seed beads – I don’t think I can bear to use them, they get rarer and rarer.
* Vintage Czech Glass Beads

She also put in a little “gifty” packet, which I thought was super sweet.  Thank you!  She should be getting her bead soup from me today.  So, here’s a preview of what I sent to her, and keep an eye on her blog to really see it!
