Metal rings/Washers/Flower Shapes/Ovals
Some of my favorite places to shop (besides a bead store, of course) are my local junk surplus stores, Sporting goods stores,
flea markets and hardware stores. It is amazing the things you can
find there that work up into jewelry. This page is dedicated to the many traditionally male oriented stores
across the country that have beaders coming in and asking for a certain item -
only to be asked "What are you going to use it for" - my reply is always "You don't really want to know"
