On Saturday a lady called Maureen brought these beautiful, old, glass beads in to the shop to see if I wanted them?!
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.
So I bypassed the recycle bin and took them out to my workspace and had a little play.
