Sometimes after finishing your jewelry-making projects, you might have beads leftover that you just don't know how to use. There may not be enough for a beaded strand or they don't match other beads you have. This example is a great way to use up those little amounts of leftovers and turn them into a stylish necklace design. These variations are inspired by Cheri's Stormy Weather Necklace. See these projects and more ideas for using your jewelry-making leftovers in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
