I can’t go past a charity shop these days without having a look at the jewellery section. Mostly I find horrid plastic beads and junk nobody would want to wear but occasionally there is something I can definitely take apart and do something with.
These nice glass beads were just crying out for remodelling. I can use the beads and the magnetic clasps, all for about £4.
This selection includes coral chips, some kind of jasper (I think) and some nice wooden beads. All for about £3.
