What are you most proud of? They are made using throw away pieces. I think they are pretty to look at and they are displayed on my dresser

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy the hunt for old beads and junk jewelery from thrift stores and friends

Did you use a crimp bead to hold the beads in place??? These are just sooooo cute.
