Last weekend I did one of the scariest things a beader can experience... I was organizing my seed bead stash and three bags of white seed beads (all in slightly different color) spilled all over my work table. Can you imagine the horror in my eyes when I heard them dropping and rolling?!!?
Of course, I quickly collected as much as I could and got approximately 50 grams of beautiful bead soup in all shades of white. =)) I decided that it's gonna take too much time to sort that pile, so I put it aside. But as you know nothing happens without a reason. ;)
Last night I was going through some old boxes and found a bracelet I made over 10 years ago. (It's really too scary to show it to you.) But that bracelet gave me an idea how to use my bead soup.
I added to the mix some leftover pearls from my previous projects...
Then half of the night I was stringing... and stringing... and stringing again.
Then I took my crochet hook...
and in the morning I had this.
I think I'm hooked on the process, as I love to crochet.
I'm planning to make more of these in all possible colors. What do you think? Is it wearable? Or should I stop at this one?
I would really appreciate your comments and opinions! ;)
And have you ever made anything from some spilled or weird leftover beads?
