I strung some of these on dental floss. I'm not sure how I want to permanently string them yet. I sort of like the red beads in between. These were inspired by the colors and look of Italian pottery that I found on Pinterest. Also, trying out my DH's new camera. Totally clueless...put it on auto and edited on Pixlr. I really like the camera though. Just too many bells and whistles. I need to learn to use the macro setting.
