I get lots of ideas from just rummaging in the bead box and seeing what turns up.
The hematite circles came from the last bead fair at Newark (from Jencel, I think).
The green metalic facetted beads came from a local bead shop that has been closed for two years, so I've probably had them for three years.
I really can't remember where I got the the minty coloured shell beads but I've had them for ages. They came to the surface again yesterday.
Now there's an idea.
