Metal Tulip Beads (on clearance)

I have a great new bead to share today and truth be told, I believe it will be Saturday before I get my new project done!

They were on clearance at Joann, Etc.! $1.97 for 4 lavender and 4 red metal tulip charms.

I'm not sure I'd call these charms, they are definitely beads!

They have a whole through the flower and I think the possiblities are pretty endless here, from color combos to different ways of using them.

I can definitely see them dangling with a large crystal inside, but I can also see them around an entire bracelet with lots of colorful beads in between.

Okay, I'm thinking memory wire!

I hope your week is off to a great start!

Since you mentioned about beads, we’ll also provide several types of beads like Bali silver beads, gemstone beads, gold filled beads and sterling silver beads at wholesale price.

I love that opaque enamel surface.

Check what this lady did with some similar beads:

Ooo those are awesome Lisa! I could see using them as bead caps on some polymer clay flower beads too. Too bad we don't have Joanne's in Canada. They look really neat!

Oh my goodness. Such pretty flowers! I'm loving the very retro color scheme. I could see these on a long, dangly necklace, like you said, with colorful beads of different sizes in between. Or perhaps with faux fabric flowers peeking out. Whatever you do with them, it's going to be lovely. :)
