An inevitable part of making canes and beads – at least for me – is a heap of scraps. I actually keep at least one or two containers on my table just to catch them. Now and then I go through those containers and sort by colour, add pinches of black, white or something sparkly and then make them into swirlies or mirror image beads like these:
These are mostly tab shaped mirror image beads. Half the fun of these is finding the little ink-blot like pictures in the beads. That one on the lower right? It has penguins diving in a tropical paradise of course.
