with a touch of green
some grey and white
with a bit of chocolate brown

wire and beaded necklace

what to do with your leftover beads?
all you need is a little bit of armature wire, which I formed into a heart
using 28 gauge wire I started at one end adding beads
 and wrapping around the heart shape
it's amazing how many beads your can use!
this one will become a necklace

craft happy!

it's worth the drive to Orangeville
if you get a chance stop by craft happy
featuring previously loved craft supplies/tools/materials
for up cycle projects 

there are basket,  jars and suitcases filled with all kinds of goodies
and just when you think you have seen everything
go back and take a second look because chances are you have missed something

and the best part of all
you can bring in your  unused supplies and get a store credit
