I visited a local beadshop recently, Ally Beads, and found a great clear, dagger-like strand of crystally clear glass.
They are rounded on the ends and slightly different lengths and widths.
When I saw them, I kept wrapping the long 16 inch strand around my wrist, putting it back and then coming back to it.
I usually take that as a sign... I was very intrigued by them!
I have actually loaded a good bit of them onto some bracelet memory wire to see what they would look like. I think they look pretty cool, but I need to figure out why they were calling out to me!
I will have to work on that!! In the mean time, aren't they GREAT!?
By the way, for any central Ohio locals, I will be hanging out at Ally Beads on Saturday, 2/20/10 to introduce my book and talk about my book publishing experience, etc. Stop by if you get a chance! I'm hoping to have time to play with some beads too! Sounds like a perfect way to spend a Saturday! :)
AND, speaking of the book, I want to thank Mortira of Inspirational Beading and Tammy Powley of About.com for taking the time to read and post such wonderful reviews. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
Have a great evening!
