My beading challenge for 2012 - to destash some long hoarded beads - has two benefits. Not only will I finally have to find the inspiration to use beads that I’ve been overlooking for a long time, but I’ll also have a lot more space for those beads that I want to use again and again. Plus, I’m hoping to relocate my home and studio later this year, and fewer beads means fewer boxes to pack and carry.
To help get both of these goals underway, I have decided it’s finally time to share my favorite acrylic beads. I can’t explain what has made me hold on to them for so long, even though I have given up using plastics in my designs. Only a fellow bead hoarder could possibly understand. And now I hope to find these little treasures a new home with someone who can appreciate how fantastic they are!
To get things started with a bang, I’m going to be giving away one of my all time favorite sets of beads. These pieces have been collected from a variety of sources, but they all have one thing in common - they have a distinct tribal flair. There are a few animal print pieces, some imitation bone, some long tubes with a wood-like finish, and three gorgeous tribal design buttons in bone and amber colors. Together or separate, these beads have a lot of potential!
