Using Beaded Trim

Oh my gosh, I just came back across this pre-fabricated beaded trim and think it is SO FUN!

The only thing I can think of doing with it is attaching it to a purse or something like that.

I would LOVE to hear any ideas you might have for using this in jewelry projects.

If you have a few minutes, PLEASE share your creativity, I can't wait. I'm going to dig this up right now.

The good news is that I actually know where this trim is hiding at the moment!! THANK YOU!!

my mom came to visit back in oct and brought me a bunch of this same stuff. it is so much fun. I am trying not to pop the beads off of it:)
i was thinking around pockets on jeans, or mebbe even around the bottom of a pair of capri's. i have seen it around lamp shades and on the end of table runners - hope this gives you ideas!

Love it Lisa! How funky and fun is this. I was thinking lampshade or decorative throw pillow... but I could also see it as trim on clothing like Tish suggested. It could really turn a simple top into FAB around the sleeve cuffs and the waist hem.

You'll have to share with us what you do with it! :) I'm sure it will make a huge statement!

I think that I would pop off some of them. Ready made earrings. I love the coin charms the best and could see all sorts of possibilities for that. And I think that it drapes like a necklace... maybe just attach some chain to the back and you will have a necklace!
Enjoy the day!

I can see using it on the bottom edge of a peyote choker, or peyote cuff. It would look great on a needle felted cuff as well. Lots of possibilies!

I am an interior designer doing a project with a bohemian theme!! I have been researching a trim that is different and exotic. This trim is just what I am looking for. I want to use it on curtains. Would you dare tell where you bought it?

Hi Jill! I am pretty sure I found this beaded trim at Joann Etc. probably a couple years ago. If you want to send me an email at abeadaday@sbcglobal.net, I'll see how much of it I have. :) -Lisa
