And I have a LOT of beads to work with. Maybe I will post a picture sometime. 4 of those divided boxes, FULL. Some were mine, some were my step-sister's, some were my mom's (campfire beads...funny huh?), and about 80% of the beads were from my grandma's collection. My (still living) grandma was into almost every crafty hobby imaginable (I think she even made some lace), and I am grateful for all of the collections with which I am able to experiment and create. This morning I made 4 pairs of earrings. Whoohoo!

I am still experimenting, so I am hoping to get better at this (especially the creative part, and the wire bending. It's lots of fun). I really like those red beads and the cream colored beads (with the orange ones) because they have carvings.
