Santa brought me an early present yesterday…it landed right in my mailbox. Truthfully, it was a little gift to myself. Some of my new favorite recycled glass button beads. In three colors! Cobalt, turquoise, and a deep red. And I’m making up some pretty earrings this afternoon.
First, I apply a coat of Renaissance Wax and give each piece a good buffing. I like what it does to the finish and coating provides some measure of protection against accidental scratching of the glass surface.
I love these because they are made of recycled glass, but even more for their luminous colors. My poor attempts to photograph them with the sunlight behind failed miserably. You’ll just have to take my word that they are even more gorgeous if you have short hair like me…or wear your hair in a party up-do.
