I thought I would take a stab at making some jewelry since I never post on this board!  I took some egg cartons that would have been thrown out and turned them into these pretty beads!







Please be gentle, I haven't made any jewelry in years!

C&C Welcome

Those are pretty neat looking! I love the colors and the polka dots.
I could see them used for beaded curtains as well.
Nice work Smiley

I hope you post here more often!  These are fabulous.  I envision them as a part of a set with a matching necklace as well.

Thank you so much! I think that's a great idea, or to make them into a banner thingy...oh man there are so many things you can do with these. Seriously, since everyone eats eggs..why spend money on regular beads? These are probably prettier, don't you think?

Aw, you are so sweet! I am totally going to be addicted to making jewelry now, especially with such positive feedback! A set would be cool, huh? Maybe a ring!
