Beads or Snack Cakes?

Yes, these ceramic beads from Michael's are giving me a real snack cake craving!! :)

When I saw these at the craft store over the weekend and wrapped the strands around my wrist, my first thought was what a cool art-deco bracelet I could make with them.

It wasn't until I was photographing them to share with you that I realized they look VERY much like a chocolate snack cake. It almost looks like the cream filling is sort of spilling out of the hole and around the edges too!

I used one of these beads on either end of my recently posted wired-up bracelet, but I believe they are meant to be used together for the impact.

Please share any ideas you have and in the mean time, I'm thinking about a cool art deco bracelet. Have a good one!

Can't beat your art deco idea! Those beads will look great with that style.

Yum! The ones I picked up have more of a caramel coating but yummy nonetheless! Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the day! Erin

Mmmm...you've made me hungry just reading your post...haven't had breakfast yet!! :0)

These are great beads...I like the art deco style...you could also use 5/6 wire wrapped as a focal of a necklace with a couple of different chains, maybe add a bright different shaped beads along with it?

It will be fun regardless...
