My brother gifted me a chain of ivory beads about 30 years back. I never used it as I do not where bead chains, but kept it. The beads are carved like little round roses. This was ideal for my rosary. All the loops and rings are designed with copper wire, so it would match the ivory colour of the beads.
So hear I add another new item to my craft collection. But look out a new quilling is on the way. Till then happy crafting friends
