Recycling sardine tins.

Still accreting, ever so slowly.

Lest you get bored waiting for this accretion to take full shape I thought I'd share something else with you.
On Saturday a lady called Maureen brought these beautiful, old, glass beads in to the shop to see if I wanted them?!
Did I?
Of course I did. The photograph does not do justice to them at all.
These beads had belonged to Maureen's mother and were now broken and not something that were ever going to be worn again.
I feel that I should keep them as together as I can, not fragment the whole too much. I have offered to make some earrings for Maureen out of them as a thank you and as a momento.
What I will do with the rest is not yet decided.
They look so much like sweets.

My dogs eat lots of sardines. One day a cluster of empty,washed out tins were stacked on the draining board waiting to be thrown into the recycling bin when I had a little moment. A moment of " I wonder what if...."
So I bypassed the recycle bin and took them out to my workspace and had a little play.
