Gorgeous Supermarket Pearls!

These gorgeous 50 piece package of "8mm Round Pearl Teal Blue" glass beads were discovered at the Meijer supermarket! They have carried beads in varying quantities over the last 5 years or so and if you really take the time to look, you can usually find something fun AND economical! This package of 50 beads was just $1.59. Needless to say I bought them in mauve, light green and standard cream too!

Pearl beads like this are great for 1 strand memory wire projects and can provide quite a bit of impact if paired with a nice sized focal bead and a few crystals. I'm preparing to search my stash of beads for a nice focal bead for each of the strands of pearls. The treasure hunting just adds to the jewelry making fun!

Have a great evening!
