Bronze Bead Mix

Today's bead is actually a fun packaged mix from Hobby Lobby. I don't make it to Hobby Lobby too often these days since they are no longer in my routine driving zone. However, there is one near a hobby store my husband likes, so that's when I tend to make it over there.

I liked the colors and variety of textures in this packaged mix and thought it would be a fun one to have. Now this would make a nice package to give a non-beader along with a 4 or 5 strand piece of memory wire (with one finished end). Most likely, you will have a jewelry maker after they get the piece strung. Seriously, I don't know how you can go wrong with memory wire, especially if you are trying to convert someone or maybe I should say "convince" someone how easy it is to make jewelry!

Once they have finished the piece, you can tell them how inexpensive the pieces were to purchase. That might do the trick! I always like to convince people they'll enjoy beading so I have more people to bead with!

I hope you all had a great weekend!!

The magpie in me always wants to gobble up packaged mixes like these. They're just so fun! I love the colors in this one.
