Handmade Goodness

Paper, recycled glass and trees - sounds good to me for summer designs.  Match them up with your favorite art beads.

1. Sea glass beads by 808Sunshine. 2. Oak tree branch wood buttons by OurAka.  3. Poetry paper beads by artspell. 4. Recycle glass wine bottle pendant by bottlehood. 5. Recycle africa glass beads by jNicLoft. 6. Sour Candy rolled paper beads by LandL.

one of the best things about the inter-net ...
I can buy great beads while enjoying my morning coffee !
Does it get any better than that?

My husband was throwing out an old leather strap. I snatched it out of the trash, took it to my studio and punched out the cutest leather beads. I love reusing things instead of throwing them away.

So into recycled glass right now it is painful.
I have to keep telling myself "It's not like they're all going to disappear, Shannon. You CAN wait until you pay off the dentist."

I've never tried paper beads before. I think I will have to after looking at LandL's gorgeous beads!

I kind of like the one shaped like a donut. hehe Although it kind of looks like a sickly donut, I still like the mossy color.
