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!
