Ethnic beads

Today I thought I would do no more than show you where I go shopping.

How lucky am I to have a shop with fabric and beads as beautiful as these? The items are mostly African in origin.

This particular bead merchant has brass beads, seed beads, shell beads, recycled glass beads, ceramic beads, beaded beads, bone beads, and yet millions more beads.

The African print fabrics are so bright and the designs unlike anything one sees anywhere else. Heaven for me is an hour spent wandering around feasting the eyes on all this beauty.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

 See you soon.
