One of the ideas left on that post mentioned it would make a great lapel pin, I agree!
Especially a lapel pin covered in a random assortment of swarovski crystals...yum!
You wouldn't necessarily have to use crystals, you could use an e-bead mix from Joann Etc., there is one in particular with turquoise, gold, cream, topaz that would be pretty cute!
For just a few dollars a tube, you should have enough to also make a pair of earrings or even a bracelet to go along with it!
That's is definitely maximizing your beading dollar!
I hope you are having a great week!!
If you have other color ideas, please send them my way. :)
