I am way, way overdue for a post about the Bead Soup Blog Party. The beads from my partner, Jane Haag, were waiting for me when I got back from Austin last weekend. She sent me a lovely assortment of aquamarine and amazonite beads, among others, with a focal of green ice quartz and a handmade silver clasp.
I apologize for the quality of this photo, which was taken with my camera phone. It does not do justice to the beads.

Why am I using a camera phone? Um, funny story. My digital camera apparently decided it needed a longer vacation than I did. So while I was playing tourist at Vermillion Village in the heart of Cajun country (visiting my sister in Lafayette, La.), my camera stayed behind to catch some more zydeco. I didn't realize it had escaped until late in the evening, and we had to leave early the next morning for Austin.
My sister later retrieved it (thank you, kind and honest soul, who turned it into lost and found), but I guess she has yet to coax it into a box, because I haven't received it yet.
I know I will have fun playing with Jane's beads. I love this shade of green, and this combination is very much something I would wear.
