“No Beads for Lent”

Description from Beadlady3 aka Cindy: Yes, I've given up buying beads for Lent. This is a guilty pleasure that I felt was appropriate!

None of these is technically a bead, right?


Buy the Beads!

    LOL I like the way you think, Cindy! Nope, they’re not beads! Fab pieces, but not beads! Wait, you’ve got the Mookaite and Kyanite and Mica Quartz..

    So you’ll be metal-working, doing collages, working with found objects, etc, until Easter…

    Hmmm…….buy wire, stringing material, findings, chain….things that you sometimes forget until the last minute. But wow….no beads at all. Isn’t it a long time? I know my sister-in-law gives up chocolate for Lent usually and she is so ready for those Ferrero Rocher things by the time its over.
    Lots of cool.things here btw.

    I don’t see the word “bead” in any of the descriptions, so I think you are okay! :D

    Cindy, When you use the gift certificate, you are not really “buying” beads, sorta kinda. You are not spending money. You are more or less “acquiring” them. :)

    What a wonderful pick, Cindy! Guess you’d better hope it doesn’t make POD before Easter!!! LOL Congrats & good luck on your resolve! I haven’t bought anything for months due to $$$$$ issues. :( So hard to resist those holiday & crossword puzzle sales…..but I did it! :D

    :D Though I think the mookaite is in a grey area, they are under the category of beads ;) Fun pick!
