african bead ornament

a few years ago at my favorite annual quilt show (piqf), i bought these cool beads made in africa from recycled glass. i forgot about them until last week when i was digging into my supply to make earrings.

then today i was cruising around online and i saw a picture of a cute button ornament in the shape of a wreath. such a perfect idea for using these out came a little wire, a little ribbon...and a couple minutes later, cuteness for the top of a gift!
