Thoughts on materials...

I love going on the hunt for the "perfect" beads.  

And by "perfect", I don't mean the most expensive or, conversely, the best value (although, sometimes both have been the case).  Instead, by "perfect", I mean beads that spark my imagination.

Beads that make me dream of what they could be.

I love finding materials in places that most people don't look: old necklaces that have been discarded, beaded Christmas garlands, fossil beds at the nearby stream, even basketball nets laced with glow-in-the-dark pony beads.  

Everything has potential...  It keeps me challenged to look for beautiful things in the most unexpected places!
