Spiral Home for Happy Beads

Hello! You are probably wondering why this "spiral home for happy beads" looks just like a spiral bead cage... Well, for some reason, the word "cage" seems sort of like "prison". I don't want to put any of my beads in prison, but I would love to provide them all with a nice, shiny home.

So, for today, this is a "spiral home for happy beads". This is another fun gift I received in the care package I mentioned in yesterday's post. As usual, my first thoughts are of pearls and crystals!

One of these colorful pearls I posted last year would be adorable housed inside! I'm thinking of using it as a focal bead for a dainty necklace and wire wrapping several crystals on either side.

I'm torn between the turquoise blue and the lavender...what do you think?

They look so pretty together it's a shame to have to pick just one! I'd probably go with the turquoise. You did say it's your favorite color!

I'd chose the turquoise, too - 'cause it's my favorite color! ;o)

Yes, turquoise! Or blue! And I have some of these spiral homes. They're great for sea glass or other beads or stones without holes.
