I'd collected these orange beads together from old broken vintage jewellery. My idea was immediately to make curtain tie backs with them, but it took a while to find the right contrasting beads to add in, until I found the small dark metallic beads (ignore the blue/green beads in the corner, they're just there for storage at the minute). The round beads are from a collection of similar beads, reclaimed from broken pieces I've made specifically for the purpose of using them in curtain tie backs. I decided not to use the small orange beads that are scattered in the picture, I'll use these for something else.
So when it's all put together, you get two of these
Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop, you can see them here.
