Default Just wondering.............

I make a bunch of bell flower beads and need to do something with some of them so I wonder, could the kids just have someone help them wrap the wire onto the necklaces they wear ?

Or maybe they could be used in another way like giving the parents of a lost child a lovely little bouquet, vase included ?

Maybe I'm way off track here but I have so many of these pretty bell flowers I'd love to donate to them and have the kids and/or their families enjoy them.

Anyone else that has this press have any ideas ?

The Bell Flowers wouldn't go into the hospital Act of Courage programs but they could be used in some of our other programs. We do lots of things with siblings and parents so these beads would go to a good purpose.

I'll make sure and send some in the next box. I just mailed one out with 271 beads in it. Whew ! lol !

May I suggest to make sure people know that the wire needs to be cleaned after it's been annealed. I usually put them in pickle then polish but it can be scrubbed off with an SOS pad as well.
