Broken, cracked, loved, unloved, test batch, beautiful and even ugly

These are the characteristics of beads that make it into my misfit bead box. I just can't toss them away.....I have used these misfits to make some amazing "other than jewelry" objects and today I will be using some to make what I hope will be fantastic! I'll post my creation later in the week once finishing touches are put on :)


So, what do you do with all your misfit beads? When people come to visit my studio they love to paw around in this box to find treasures........ I have know idea what they do with these items but I'm happy that they find something to take home & be creative with.

From what I see, it WOULD be a treat to paw through this box! Can't wait to see what you've made!
Happy Creating!

these misfits are fun..
i was looking around at all my not quite right beads wondering what to do with them..i've started weaving some into a vine growing on my driveway gate ..wonder if anyone will notice as they walk by that those aren't berries on that vine.;-)

Wow. What a great idea! But won't they stop and look around once they do notice :)

I give them to my Dad to incorportate into his artwork or send to BOC.
