When Widget's Beads first got the tree agate nuggets, she was aghast as she did not like this agate's dark green mottling and she wasn't used to wearing larger beads.

So the gemstone nuggets sat neglected for months until one day, she decided to team them up with bright orange striped oval glass beads with metal spacer beads in between. The brighter hue of the glass warmed up the green gemstone. The size of the nuggets mattered little once she put on her creation and loved the look!

The moral of this jewelry making story is not to dismiss any unappealing beads outright. Sometimes, it's best to let ideas precipitate out on their own.
