I know this is not a completed beaded project but I wanted to share my excitement. I found a free box of gaudy ornaments and instantly saw beads. I took the box home full of 20 ornaments, disassembled all the ornaments and ended up with a box full of beads! For Free! *Smiling* I can use all of the materials except the glue gobs. I think you have to be a crafter to see beauty in free gaudy ornaments!

Lol. When I saw the first pic I thought it's what you made with the stuff...I don't see a gaudy component, I see a big, striking pendant!

i just love the look of freshly organized jewelry bits...oh the possibilities!

I love looking and sorting through my bead collections and interesting findings, just letting the idea's flow.

May a sunbeam warm you, a moonbeam charm you, and a craft idea hit like monkeys flinging poo.
