Bead Shop Find

Image hosted by Photobucket.comLook what I found in a box? I remember purchasing them awhile back. I hung one up on my wall & put the rest in a safe place (lol). I bought these at Bluestem Beads in Porter, Indiana.

Cathy: Originally, I thought they would be interesting scissor fobs. One reminded me of a Dove's Eye (hardanger). Simple cord or braid & tassle? The shop owner told me they are put on beaded necklaces OR silk cords. I just liked them ; ) I participated in an EGA GCC beading course & made a couple amulet bags & got carried away with beading for awhile.
Jenna: As I recall, they are a low grade jadeite. Next bead shop trip, I'll verify!

Those are really interesting and unique beads - any thoughts on how you might use them?

Hope the boys feel better soon. It's miserable to be sick at this time of year.

Wow, amazing buttons/beads. What a treasure.

Sorry to hear about Alex. Will antibiotics be necessary? Good luck for a speedy recovery.

Elegant Stitch included a jade piece somewhat like these that you attached hand dyed ribbon to and used for a scissor fob. I love mine. The hardanger one (I thought more along the lines of it being a Celtic know) is really wonderful!

They are stunning, Lelia! Are they jade? Very intricate; they would make lovely fobs or even necklaces if string on simple silk cord! :)
