What she got/What I got

My fabulous partner Christine and I rescheduled our reveal for #3, this coming Saturday, April 20.

Find all of the other Second Reveal folks here.

Which means I should probably get pics of our respective soups posted without delay, right?

Here goes:
First up is what Christine sent to me - she very generously sent two soups! (and a delish chocolate bar!)

The main soup has a blue/brass/crystal color scheme. The focal is a scrumptious vintage rhinestone/filigree piece that she made herself (!!!) (anyone who knows me knows how I feel about something handmade! swoon!), a lovely brass filigree-style toggle clasp, 4 chandelier crystals, dyed impression jasper, sodalite briolettes, tiny shimmery labradorite briolettes, brass accent beads (plain and fluted), blue dyed freshwater pearls, and lots of blue crystal rondelles, along with four brass "woven" ring links, some cool blue big-hole beads, some blue/white/light blue plastic star spacers, and a couple of lengths of fiber cord - blue silk and brass-tone satin cord. WOW! What a pile of lovely stuff to play with!
The second soup Christine sent has a purple/red/blue color scheme - the focal is a decoupage tile, which I just love, accompanied by dyed red and blue agate beads, and some gorgeous sparkly blue/grey brolette drop crystals for some serious bling. I've decided to use gunmetal findings with this color scheme - hoping I get this piece finished before the big reveal!

Christine - thank you thank you thank you for all the fun new beads I've gotten to play with these past few weeks! I hope I'm doing them justice!

OK, now for what I sent to Christine:

Here's the sneak peek pic I posted a few weeks ago:

Here is the unaltered view of the "sneak peek" pick:
And this picture tells you what everything is:
DO be sure to check back on Saturday, April 20, 2013, to see what Christine and I made with our piles of beady goodness!
