The parcel I received from Silke was beautiful in itself! The brown rough textured box with spring green ribbons sat there on my kitchen table promising yet unknown delights… Ah, the sweet anticipation!
I opened the parcel and found quite a few small organza bags with beads, clearly labelled with the delightful contents. Once I have picked up all the beads from their bags and get to admire them all together I am struck by the beauty of this symphony of harmonising colours Silke has put together for me! I am not exaggerating – the collection is amazing!
Silke has sent two focals which are lampworked beads she has made herself. One huge lentil and one round bead of generous size. A collection of smaller lampworked beads to match, silk sari ribbon which a friend of Silke has hand dyed. Bright silver beads and clasp, shimmering pastel Swarovski Crystals. If this wasn’t enough, she also sent an extra gift to me which is a very stylish pair of glass/silver earrings in a cool green colour.
I just need some alone time with the beads now so I can work out what to create:)
