I ordered some new glass beads the other day, and I just couldn't wait to get something made from them! These glass beads are about 1.25" round and they are flat on both sides. The other large glass beads that I was using was flat on one side and a round dome on the other side. I was buying my old beads from the floral / wedding section of Hobby Lobby and in each sack would be only a few that I could actually use. Lots of them had scratches, nicks, or were iodized. I am loving the new beads because they have no scratches, nicks and they are non-Iridized. Well anyways...here are three charms that I made with the new glass.
P.S. If you are interested in purchasing any of these pendants they are available for sale in my etsy shop~ www.lanisvintage.etsy.com
