Life of an Item with Emptynestegg

I would agree that I really don’t need more beads. Sometimes you can not resist the temptation. Surely I can go to a bead show and just look…

Ok so I can see how Manhattan was sold for beads.

I really didn’t buy that much and I think they came out well.

First I found some great green rectangle stones.
At the next booth I found the seed beads. I really can’t resist seed beads.

But still how to put them together as something to wear? You can’t just throw them on your arm and expect they will stay there.

Shapes, Mary, think shapes. Rectangle and Circles they will look nice together.
And a nice peyote toggle.
Beads, how I love beads.
So, the shapes are done now to put it together. A little bit of crystal for flash.
And viola an eye catching bracelet.
