I recently went through and organized my entire stash of crafting supplies which has never been properly organized before and one of the things I discovered is that I have a lot more beads than I thought I did. Including a bunch of pony beads and letter beads that I probably bought back in middle school. Now I really like the colors and the ones along the sides are pretty and iridescent and I think I could make something really cute with them, but what?

So my question is, have any of you crafty people out there ever seen anything interesting done with pony beads? I've tried looking around and all I can find are those awful bracelets that everyone was wearing back in middle school and high school.

If you have girls in your family you could make friendship bracelets.

You can use them as stoppers on chain/ribbon necklaces, and hang other pieces above the stopper.
