I posted yesterday about ugly beads , and thought I'd share another solution for those  inexpensive , and sometimes ugly , little lucite , and acryllic beads you may have sitting around, or any mismatched beads that build up on the bottom of the bead drawer : Bubble rings!





( these beads were hideous ..seriously . Lucite with a clear band , with gold flakes in the clear part.  I got them in a bracelet  from anold lady at a garage sale . They were very late ' 70's " i love wood  paneling and fiber optic floral arrangements" . Now they are kitcshy fab!)





( just your basic  cheapo stripey beads!)





( the roses were a free gift from an etsy purchase i made , the purple pearls were dug up from the bottom of my bead stash , and the plastic crystals were salvaged from a broken little girls scrunchie that was a friend was going to throw away. I LOVE up-cycling!!)

Thanks for looking!

These are really fun. The last one reminds me that I have some hair bauble beads that I need to put to good use.

BTW, I knew this was your post from the thumbnail. You definitely have a distinct style.

I agree with heathersy, I knew already it was your work, because it's all so cute!

I love the pink striped beads, very cute, and cool idea for some beads left around lol

* laughs*   thanks !  I just like choosing  a picture that shows the up close and personal  details of the project...those are my favorite parts! I take what shines most about the project and just focus on that . then take an over-all pic to show the entire item.
 
 I share here because I genuinely LOVE crafting . I have no problem getting in there and showing EVERYTHING, so if other people want to emulate what I did for themselves , they can figure it out. there is enough craft out there for all of us .  The people here on craftster have inspired me for over a year before I joined ....I learned to much and got sooooooooo many great ideas. I just like doing the same for someone else .

* hugs to you *

So adorable!  I wish I had some blank rings laying around.

those are great, and an ingenious way to clear out beads! how do you make them? is it just blank rings you buy from a craftstore?

These are very cute!  Do you have any action shots?  I'd really like to see what they look like on.
