Last fall, I attended a jewelry workshop one night after work. The class was about making resin pendants but I spied all these fabulous beads for other classes on the counter behind us.
The colors were magnificent so I took out my you-know-what (trusty iPhone) from my purse and grabbed a few shots.
The beads were color coordinated showing gradations of the rainbow.
These fabulous little beads sort of remind me of Christmas balls, don’t you think?
I would have loved to have dipped into these bins of beads. There were so many that just made my mouth water, they looked so full of goodness.
While I haven’t really gotten into jewelry making (hey, it’s tough enough having a zillion other hobbies!), I have been using different beads from my flea market finds for the velvet ribbon bookmarkers that I’ve made recently.
New or old, beads make a grand adornment for so many projects. Not only can you make jewelry, but you can sew them onto fabrics or glue them onto paper projects. A little glitter, a few beads…I think it’s just what every girl needs.
