Hello! I've been anxiously awaiting my order from Rings & Things because I have never ordered a "grab bag" of beads before. I have certainly been tempted, but for some reason never went through with it.
The mood struck when I was searching through the online catalog and the funny thing is, I didn't realize I had marked the quantity as "2" until I was finishing up my order. Since time was limited, I thought it must be destiny, so I left it as is. The good news is, the $5 grab bags are well worth the "risk"!!
I would LOVE to show you all the loot in one post, but I really want to appreciate each bead's unique qualities. Yes, this could take a while! I will describe the first grab bag to you just to give you an idea of how exciting it was to open this package. The ziplocking bag was stuffed full of bead strands! I was kind of surprised to see so many. There were 13 individual strands of very unique beads.
The strand of red/amber flowers has 16 of these beads on it. The color is so unique and the flower design is adorable. It's just under an inch in length with two holes for stringing. Even though there are 16 beads, I think I'd like to use it as a bracelet focal bead. What do you think about a 2 strand memory wire bracelet? I'm going to give it a try!
Have a good one!! (and stay tuned)!
