I just discovered a new use for an existing bead as the result of a beading mishap! Those are the best kind of discoveries too! Just when you think your project or idea has taken a turn for the worse, you find there is something new right before your eyes!
I just LOVED these silver plated stars that I mentioned back in October. It wasn't until I recently made the mistake of wiring one of them too tightly into a project that I discovered I could stretch it out to make a nice, solid spring!
When I was trying to detatch the star from the other beads, I pulled so hard it started to stretch. I liked the look so I made it even longer.
I am going to connect a big sparkly crystal to the end of it and can't wait to get started!!
