Wild Flowers

Look at these crazy beads.

I found them in a fruitcake tin, in a sewing cabinet, at an estate sale.

The couple had traveled to Africa in the 60's and I am assuming that this is where these are from. I love that they are a rustic, tribal version of Venetian millefiori beads.

I am always trying to get my murrini perfectly round when I melt them in - look what you can do when you just let them run wild!

I just listed bunches of them in my Curious Old Things etsy shop.
