Creating with Beads-of-Clay Bead Swaps

Many Beads-of-Clay Yahoo Group members and Beads-of-Clay Ceramics Art Forum members  have participated in bead swaps over the years.  Often we just keep our bead collections in plastic bead boxes.  I don't hear too often of how folks use their beads or see what they make.   Marti Conrad came up with the idea of making a wreath with her collection of Beads-of-Clay beads.  Today I am sharing photos of how she has displayed her collection of ceramic beauties.

The great part about displaying her cache on a wreath is that it is such a great way to hang all those fabulous ceramic pendants that the group made.

And here are even more wonderful pendants. I also like the way she strung the beads together and hung them in groups on the wreath.

Thank you so much Marti for sharing your collection with us.
You can see Marti's own ceramic beads, buttons and pendants in her Etsy Store here
