Bead Soup Reveal!!!! It's Time!!!

This is so much fun!!!
Lori, Thanks for hosting this Blog Hop!
I was fortunate enough to be partnered with 
Tanty Sri Hartanti,   
and she sent me some gorgeous beads!
In truth, I was very nervous about working with these beauties because I normally don't work in greens!
That was a challenge, but it was a challenge that I could not refuse!!!
Thank you, Tanty!
I was able to make two pieces with Tanty's beads!  
I do love them!
I made a bracelet and a necklace.
I only hope the photos do these pieces justice.
So, without further ado,
Here's my bead soup!

Don't you just love this?  I do!!!

 I love this, too!!
Thank you, Tanty, for the beautiful beads!
Now, off with you!
Check out Tanty's soup!
Also, check out her blog!
She makes beautiful jewelry!
