Thanks to Oma and Mika for scouring the flea market in Heidelberg and finding this fantastic Murano glass bead necklace. The necklace was a bit much as it was, with five layers of heavy glass beads, but with a couple of snips with the scissors and an evening of sorting, and I now have six or more plastic baggies stuffed with emerald green beads of various sizes and shapes. I don't think I would ever have chosen green, but necessity is truly the mother of invention -- it is when I am presented with limitations that I am most inspired. I have already had many hours of fun creating earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
