Sometimes the answers come at odd times. Like when you're having take out from the chinese restaurant, and you look at the little fold up box with the handle on it.
Or you're driving down the road and you see the design in the wrought iron fence you're driving alongside, and wish you had time to stop and take a photograph.
Sometimes the pattern in the flowers at the grocery store in the floral department, sitting in pots of water waiting to go into an arrangement, temporary bright colors.
I didn't want to drill a hole, or put a wire wrap through the round YoYo designs.
So I decided to try something really simple, just open loops on the back of the bead that you can slip a chain or a cord, or maybe a whole group of strung seed beads through. There's a red one, and one that looks like antique copper or iron with a green patina.
It's going to be fun to see how folks use these. I was tempted to make something up myself, but decided to list them in the Etsy store as beads and let you have fun with them.
I think they could be made up into earrings and bracelets, now that I have the idea about how to add the metal loop rings on the back.
How fun is that?
Someone put together this pretty Treasury aptly titled "ORACLE" with lots of mysterious and interesting images. See my Star Chart Hearts in the second row?
I like the combination of colors, textures and images. If you see something you want to know more about, go to the Treasury, it's up until Sunday.
