I used to do a lot of bead work. Earrings, rings and the like. I lost the taste for it, but have recently been into it again. I found a Japanese book on ring making which is fabulous. I also started making some bugs. I've been using them to accent my bags. They're a little big to use as a brooch (maybe ok on a winter coat). I like making these for the quick results, unlike a knitted or sewn garment or accessory.
