A recent shopping trip to a store that features glass beads turned up some strands of beauties. I was especially taken with the two strands of “rocks and pebbles” that look like they were freshly dug up from an archaeological site. Never seen anything like these before and I just fell in love with them.
Where to begin?
One strand of autumn hued glass beads begged to be strung on silk cord.
Another found a nice home paired with turquoise on my favorite brass chain, with hints of bright copper.
This last shot is a peek at my overhaul of some tired old black flocked display boards.
I love the au naturale look, even if they are a bit messy despite three coats of a fixative spray.
Thanks so much, Monique, for sending the URL for this easy, cheap makeover idea.
And thanks go to Heather Powers of Humblebeads, the talented creator behind this project.
