Last minute Valentine's Day gifts

So you are a little behind in your gift prep - OK - no need to panic, we can get you through this!

Here are a couple of ideas using art beads that you can whip out today and have already to go tomorrow. They make a great gift for men, women, kids and adults.

Book thongs:

You can go simple with just a leather cord and a couple of beads - sort of a manly look,

or you can jazz it up a bit,

or maybe even make a necklace that can double as a book thong:

Humble Beads

Maybe a zipper pull - great for those stuck in snowy, cold weather,

or how about a metallic, steampunk style - very popular these days (come back to learn more about this style this weekend, on Studio Saturday):

Take a moment and leave us a comment about your unique ways to use (and give) art beads.
