My dad loves going to auctions and bringing me random things back. Once he brought me glass antique marbles and packaged beaded ponytail holders.

Using the glass marbles, I made the neatest earrings. I like how the orange marbles look like a goldfish bowl

Using the big plastic beads from the ponytail holders, I filled in three Christmas tree frame ornaments. With the rest, I made bracelets using invisible cord, crimps beads, and a toggle clasp. Since the holes on the beads were side-ways, the bracelets did an interest zigzag pattern which reminded me of bubbles. Here are two pink and blue bubble bracelets made from these strange beads.

OoooooH! These are really pretty! I like the intense colors and I have to agree with you on the goldfish-bowl impression;D  Makes me want to have pierced ears... and I'll be keeping my eyes open for beads that make this funky zigzag pattern, I would really like one of these lovely bubbly bracelets.

Thanks! I wasn't a fan of the beaded holders either. But they're fun to play with.
