Not knowing what I was going to do with them, I just bought them and crossed my fingers I would think of something interesting to make. Since I've been playing with knotted cotton cord and bead bracelets, I thought the large holes would make threading them easier. Ideas were coming to me when I mixed them together with beads I already had.
I am so happy with the outcome I just might keep this piece for myself. Mixed together with iridescent ceramic Mykonos beads, they give the piece just the right glow. After I took photos of the finished piece I sent them to Carol with a message showing her how the beads look and I think she was pleased.
A while ago I sold a watercolor painting to a friend. That was exciting enough, but when she later took a photo of the painting framed and hung in it's place of honor, I was thrilled. It's a special feeling when the creator of an object can see that their piece is loved.
So, I went over to Carol's Etsy shop and bought another set of great beads. I can't wait to get them!
Oh, and by the way...
