While beautiful by themselves, the beads were not meant to fill bowls, but to be used in earrings, bracelets and necklaces. We enlisted the help of Steve's sister and niece, who have been making jewelry for awhile, to design some jewelry with the beads.
While they were busy making jewelry, Steve went back to making more beads. The bowls quickly filled up again and it was time for us to start making jewelry too.
With beads and designs in hand, it was time to put it all together. We spent several evenings matching colors, stringing beads, bending wire and wrapping beads. Now instead of bowls of beads we have beautiful earrings and necklaces!
