Bead Soup Ingredients (from Melissa)

Goodies I received from my Bead Soup Blog Party partner, Melissa.
Gorgeous blues, amber and iridescent purple glass.
A group of luscious glass leaves that shimmer and shine like pools of cold clean water.
And, to top it off....her grandmother's string of AB crystals!
Ahhhh, right now I am stumped excited.  What will I design with them?
A first...working with lampwork beads, that is.
That's the beauty of a challenge.  
To be faced with the unknown, yet excited about the possibilities.
Unless a man undertakes more than he possibly can do, he will never do all that he can.

I have never worked with lamp work either but, loved the pansy bead that Susie got in her bead soup. So, I wrote to the artist to see if she could do a puprle pansy lamp work bead for me. Can't wait to see what you create! HUGS!
