Silvery Mirrors

As promised yesterday, today's bead is a very sparkly silvery mirror bead. This set of 46 beads came from JoAnn, Etc.

Both the silver beads and yesterday's black rings are "Beyond Beautiful" and when I saw them hanging near each other, they immediately seemed meant to be together.

I can't wait to create something with them. Thank you for yesterday's ideas, I hadn't even thought about earrings! For some reason, I seem to begin by thinking about bracelets 90% of the time!

My original thought was wrapping the beads around the black ring somehow. All outside, all inside or in-and-out, I'm not sure.... Might make a cute pendant!

I also think using some contrasting wire colors such as bronze and/or copper would be interesting....

Have a good one!! :)

Dear A Bead A Day; thought I'd pop by to what latest creations you have made, and what products you were introducing lately.., Those beads that you posted today are beautiful by the way. In fact they remind me of the beads that I used to make my dear mothers 50th wedding aniversary necklace; the one and only time I ever created a necklace. SADLY MY DEAR DAD PASSED AWAY A YEAR LATER DUE TO AN INJURY SUSTAINED ACCIDENTALLY. YET YOU INSPIRED ME TO PICK UP THIS ART LOST TO ME, SINCE THAT TIME TWO YEARS AGO.., blessings

Lovely beads...I'm sure they will work nicely with the links from yesterday.

these are great to use as an added splash o' flash to any design. I like using them as accents.

Hey! Thanks for the follow up Lisa!
I think those dark rings are faboo! Don't have a Joann's here, but Michaels has a new line called "Forged" that you should check out. Really really cool stuff. I wanted to buy it all but I think they overcharged me for what I did buy! I can't wait to make something special with them. I will be working on something tonight. I appreciate that you took the time to follow up with me on my blog Treasures Found. Enjoy the day! Erin
