I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
This week I am doing a little jewellry repair: re-stringing a somewhat fragile, but beautiful and unique necklace.
I believe the beads are the rarely seen Macaroni-ite Dye-us. I would have run them through my teeth to check their authenticity, but oddly the words colour run keep springing to mind. Anyway, I have replaced their original stringing (a piece of pink yarn) with some nice stretchy hat elastic.
I am told that you can make a good replica of these beads by combining a couple tablespoons of rubbing alcohol, food coloring and some uncooked pasta. The beads need to be left to dry for an hour on paper towel before being used. (And I am assuming that wearing them in the rain would be a disaster waiting to happen.)
Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space today (or to join in), head over here.
