What a Find!

I’ve been busy over the last week going through drawers, baskets, and boxes filled with so many goodies that I’d forgotten I had! I’ve come across fabulous finds from bead shows I’d attended over the years including a treasure trove of these sweet tiny sitting Buddha beads made of resin in faux Amethyst, Rose Quartz, and Jade. They truly do look like the real thing! I couldn’t believe I hadn’t yet made anything with them! But that’s how it is! One comes home from a bead show loaded up with so much eye candy and a plethora of ideas. With creative juices overflowing and so many design possibilities running through my head, I’d hardly know where to begin. Some items just were put away for future projects and then ultimately forgotten. Now that I’ve found these, I’m toying with several ideas for using them…earrings of course as they are a perfect size! But, I’m also contemplating featuring them in other designs. A Buddha bead dangling as a charm on a bracelet or as a component on a string of prayer beads? I have more of these little Buddha beads than I can use so I have listed them in my Etsy shop
