What I sent to my bead soup partner

Now that my partner Sally from Wireworked has received her bead soup package.  I just learned after reading her blog today that she has a thing for journals so maybe I was getting that vibe when I couldn't think of what to send her for a focal piece and decided to send her one of my tiny etched journals. Everything in this package was personally handmade by me in my studio except the copper chain, I would have made it but I ran out of time.  I can't wait to see what Sally does with these goodies.  Now that I think about it I should have etched the beads it would have given them a nice soft look, oh well next time :)
