Beads... Beads... But Not a Sneed

Beads... beads... beads -- but not a single Sneed - no trees had to give their life again in the making of these beads.  We upcycle old magazines, comic books and junk mail that we mostly collect through our local Freecycle.  If you don't know what Freecycle is you should look it up.  It's an awesome way to get things others want to get rid of, or to get rid of something you don't want.

Suffice it to say that we're up to our ears in magazines.  After months of researching, experimenting and massaging sore wrists -- we are beginning to roll out our beads.  Thus far, we have about 40 different styles of beads to bring to you and we'll be gradually adding them to our shop on Etsy and Ebay.

We can even make seed beads!  It's amazing how changing the process can create so many shapes.
