So I went to the "cheaper" craft store in this area and got this huge container of beads for eight bucks. It was cheap because some of the beads are broken and many of them are rejects that didn't make it into the regular bead containers offered. There were still, however, some fantastic beads in there and I made these two bracelets and necklaces out of them. I still have many beads left, too. I think I will save the broken and unusable ones for a moisaic of some kind.
