Just for fun!  These ‘mystery beads’ were passed along by a friend.  I snapped a quick photo–can you guess what any of them are?

    They are hard to see, but i’ll give it a shot!!

    lower left, the 7 o’clock position – Lapis
    12 o’clock – glass
    1 o’clock – aventurine
    butterfly – ceramic
    5 o’clock – dyed magnesite
    6 o’clock – coral

    This was fun!

    Good guesses! It’ll be fun to see what everyone thinks these might be. I took another photo of them just now — might add it to the post if it came out OK 🙂
