One man's trash...
I went to a church rummage sale last night and found what must be a 5-gallon plastic zip-loc bag nearly full of NEW bags of beads... I WAS IN HEAVEN!!!
No price on it. :(
When I went to check out, the girls said 20.
These beads were older & the GOOD quality kind. Every shape, color & size.
NOW, wanting to make the sparklers, what size gauge has everyone found to work best???
Is there a "good" length per that gauge?
And, what has everyone been using between beads? I bought a pack of the fishing things mentioned in one of the previous posts, but they are kind of expensive. Same with the beading crimps. Can the wire itself just be crimped?
If the wire is just loaded with beads all the way, is it too heavy?
Between my new 20-cent "Bag-o-gold" (ISN'T IT SADdddd that we junkers feel this way about someone else's TRASH?!?!?), and what I already had at home, this will be a great money maker project to do all winter & sell in the spring!
I'M SOoooo EXCITED!!!
