Bead Sorting

Since I’ve real­ly jumped into this jew­el­ry mak­ing I decid­ed it was time to sort this 1 Pound Lux­u­ry Bead Soup Mix I pur­chased a while back from Mar­got Pot­ter. I grabbed one of my old muf­fin tins, sat in my big com­fy chair, put on my head­phones and start­ed sort­ing. You all know I love the thrill of the hunt and sort­ing this amaz­ing bag of assort­ed beads was just like being on a lit­tle scav­enger hunt. I had no idea what I would find but what I found was won­der­ful. As I start­ed sort­ing I dis­cov­ered I had enough of these green beads, which reminds me of the chi­clets gum I chomped on when I was lit­tle, to cre­ate a jew­el­ry ensem­ble.

These green beads just so hap­pen to be my daugh­ter Ter­ri’s favorite col­or green. Before I fin­ished sort­ing beads ideas start­ed pop­ping in my head and well the sort­ing stopped. Unex­pect­ed cre­ativ­i­ty hit and when it hits I have no choice but to act. So the jew­el­ry tools and wire quick­ly came out and I was off cre­at­ing a bracelet, pair of ear­rings and a pen­dant. Ter­ri likes sim­ple and I like funky so I thought I could com­bine the two styles by wire wrap­ping the beads with a messy wire wrap and I love how each piece turned out as did Ter­ri.

I think this is unex­pect­ed cre­ativ­i­ty at it’s best, no plans or pri­or ideas, it was just cre­ate and see what comes!
