Bead Soup -- what I sent to my partner

My Bead Soup Blog Party partner this year, Tandra Boyer, told me that her favorite color is orange.  And that she's not too fond of purple.  We had a good chuckle over this, since I'm just the opposite (love purple, don't care for orange). 

Given her fondness for orange, I knew I had to include both carnelian and fire agate beads in my selection for her.  Then, as contrast, I included several different blues....including a few that are almost purple (tee hee!) 

The focal is a fabulous agate bead which mixes a bit of orange with a deep blue, and I turned it into a pendant for Tandra using rose gold color wire and more carnelian beads; then just for fun I added carnelian and dumortierite dangles. 

Can't wait to see what Tandra cooks up from these soup fixins!
