Bead Soup sent.. and received

Hello friends,

Well, my friend over at Moobie Grace Designs has received the Bead Soup I sent her.
So, now I can show a few photos. ( Although I think Tania's are SO much better than mine) No hair for starters!

Lampwork beads, sari silk, dyed coral, faceted labradorite, handmade copper chain, links and clasp.
Handmade bezel with coloured resin focal. (sorry about the hair.. aargh!)

Handmade lamp work beads...they look a bit like stone or agate ... but are glass. Actually the glass is called Light Lace Agate (by Effetre) so there you go!

Tania's photos of the soup I sent are arty and very sparkly... I am going to have to pick up my game when the beads from her come to me! Hurry up Mr. Postie!

And just to let you know, I have opened up a little Artfire shop. Still very early days.. only two items listed!
I am still trying to work out the editing/posting process. And as much as I have read and re-read how to get a nice crisp WHITE background, it still is not happening.... I have spent the better part of today and I don't know HOW many photos practising what seems to be a an illusive task! Still only a lighter shade of gray...

Any tips, anyone?

So, it's back to the drawing board..err, computer.

I hope you are all having a more exciting day than me..!

Jenni, I hadn't realized 'til reading your commentary that the lovely grey and caramel beads were glass and not stone. Such a natural effect! Tania is thrilled with your soup and it is no wonder. Now I am anxious to see what she sent you (she didn't post pics on her site... naughty girl... leaving us all in the dark!)

Love that heart!! Can't wait to see what you create :)

I know what you mean about photos... its so difficult to get that perfect look... very frustrating. I think we all are continually trying to 'get there'... I think your photos look good though anyway...:)

Your pictures are just fine. The soup you sent is so cool. I like the neutral-ness of it with just that pop of red. It gives her a little freedom of direction with it.
