The Urge to Alter

Do you have the urge to alter? When I see beads and components, my first thought is often - how can I alter this to use in a non-traditional way?

I don't know why that is, but I figured many others probably have the same kind of thoughts, so I wanted to get your input.

Can you see dot-eyes and a sweet little smile on this enamel charm? I sure can.

One of the many fabulous perks of being a Cousin Corporation Ambassador is the ability to choose beads from the catalog each month.

When I saw these yellow enamel charms online, I instantly saw smiley faces!

I received an awesome box of beads yesterday and had a great time opening all the packages and touching everything, allowing the creative process to evolve.

These yellow charms are yellow on both sides.

I'm not sure if they need smiles on both sides or not, but I can't wait to get my sharpie out. :)

Oh my, yes - smiley faces. I hope you'll share your creation when it's done.

Definitely, those bright yellow charms are perfect for smiley faces. :)

I do look at many supplies as to how I can make them my own. With these, I see how you could see smiley faces. However, I immediately thought about stamping textures onto them. Cool beans! I can't wait to see what you do with them.
