From Virginia to Victoria.. bead soup arrival.

Hello my friends,

Well actually, it's from Tania  to Jenni!
I was getting just a tad worried.. but my soup arrived today and what a lovely surprise to see that yellow package arrive.. and yes, on my birthday...so well timed Tania!

So, here we go... some eye candy for you!

Beautiful box and card.. don't you just love the colours and that stunning butterfly!

Some people are so good at organisation!

The whole beautiful mixed soup. Tania you have been so generous, thank you so much.

One of the gorgeous polymer clay focals with it's support beads. I am in totally in love with this.

Tania has spoilt me rotten and sent two stunning focals and their matching beads. This focal is attached to a delicate patinated filigree and is just so beautifully made.. I am in awe of the workmanship on this piece. Polymer rounds, amazonite and pink coral in the background.

Wrapped beads and clasp with connector.. these are so me!

And just for fun, I thought I would show you the amazing little lenses that attach to an iPhone...my husband got these for my birthday... such fun. There is a 2-in-1 Wide Angle/Macro lens, a 2x Telephoto lens and a Fisheye lens. They attach with a magnetic ring and have little magnetic caps. You do have to take off your phone cover to use them.

This photo was taken with my little macro iPhone lens. Pretty good close up I think! I think those might be cubic zirconias in the floral centre, although just guessing here...or crystals? The bead is not as red as this though.

Also taken with the iPhone macro lens... quite fabulous for a tiny thing like that! I can see I am going to get quite a bit of use from this little lens. (only problem is any dust or hair is visible.. got to remember to clean before taking a photo!)

And now the fun begins....

WOW, I would struggle with all the choices. Romantic or organic. Lucky girl. I probably would have considered buying the Iphone if I had known those lenses were available.

Gorgeous beads, Jenni. Can't wait to see what you'll make with them.
And I love the lenses - again, can't wait to see how you'll use them. I take most of my pix these days with my phone (pure laziness on my part).

There is so much to this post to love. First off, your bead soup is awesome. I adore the two polymer clay pendants as well as the wire components included.
As well, your new phone lenses are amazing. I just heard about these a few weeks ago and want some SO MUCH! I guess they go on my wish list. thanks for also sharing how well they work. Your shots are beautiful.
