What to do with bead soup?

If you make jewellery, you probably have a bunch of beads like these. Leftovers from finished projects, salvaged beads from bungled projects, beads you found on the floor... What to do with them? Maybe my jewellery project for today should be making something with these beads? What do you think? Any ideas?

  1. You could make a bracelet with all these pretty things. Or a multi-stone necklace. I'm sure you'll make something ravishing!

  4. Usually I do all my projects with beads like on your photo. I dot buy beads, only sometimes from secod-hand stores. They have some cind of mystery. They have that kind of special smell on them. All the feelings what they consists are amazing, you´ll ever kow, what the last owener looked like, what she thaught, what she felt.
