About this design:

Are allowed to post non-new beads??
Guess I will find out. lol
I love the thrill of finding fun vintage beads and finding new ways to make them fresh and exciting again.
I nearly flipped my lid when I saw these firey painted lucite beads. They were just stung big.little.big. etc. BORING
There were several that the paint was peeling from the bead so I "skinned" them and used them too :)
made a sassy bracelt and earrings

    We love repurposed beads – or “born again beads” as I like to call them! These are really neat, love the way you arranged them. We do it a lot on this site.
