African Beads

A good friend got me some nice new African beads. It was a very nice present. I have more than this I plan to make necklaces with and will show those too. Here I combined the African beads with some glass beads, I got from a glass-making shop many years ago.

  1. Glad you finally got your wish!

    1. me too. I will show the other beads too once I make necklaces with them. :)

  2. Look forward to seeing your necklaces!

  3. The first necklace I made was after seeing the movie "The Last Emperor".I loved the long strand of pearls mixed with turquoise and other stones the emperor wore. I couldn't afford the pearls , so I did a long strand of mother of pearl in different shapes. That started me on the whole bead thing! Movies do affect our lives.

  4. Were those beads from a farm that practices ethically raised decorations? Or are they free range beads? Did they give them room to roam and did they get along with the other beads. This won't make any sense if you haven't read about free range poultry. And it still may not make sense. You gotta work with me on this. OK? ok!
