Orphan beads

 I often create sets of lampwork beads with the same design. After pairing up similar sized beads to make into jewellery, I’m left with a few beads of differing sizes.  Most lampworkers experience the problem.  What to do with these orphan beads?

I always have a container on my stall with orphan beads in it that customers like to riffle through for their own projects. I also use my orphan beads to make bookmarks.  People love them.  They make the perfect gift for a book lover.  My daughter uses her strawberry bookmark all the time.  She also has a few others that she sticks in cookbooks marking pages of favourite recipes.
