You add them to your stash and save them for a future piece that you have in mind because they’ll be so perfect for it! And then you go back to the project you’re presently working on and before it’s finished you have ideas for other new pieces! That scenario seems to be an endless cycle with me! I’m presently sorting through my stash of polymer clay beads and have rediscovered several that I’ve made in the past few years…that I couldn’t bear to part with or they were extras after having made a project (see photo at right). That’s the case with those in the photo above. I’ve temporarily strung them on hand-hammer steel wire. They really need to go to a good home and to someone who will create something wonderful with them! You’ll find these collections and others in my Etsy shop.
