The necklace pictured above was made by Julie Campbell and includes some of my bead caps and one of my toggles.  Julie teaches some great classes at Bead Haven in Cedar Rapids.  I'm always amazed by what people make with the parts that they buy from me.   I love it when they send me photos of their work.  They consistently come up with things that I never would have conceived of.  One of the beading magazines has a regular feature where they give several people the same supplies and then see what different things they'll make from them.  I think it's cool how differently and creatively our minds will work if we just allow them to.
