I've written about all sorts of home decor ideas using beads and findings before (see links below).  If you have a veranda, balcony or some outdoor space, you might want to make some wonderful wind chimes with beads! Soft tinkling sounds and pretty crystals to reflect the light will make the warmer weather sparkle!
I spotted this inspirational design made by Jude Wroblewski over on Fire Mountain Gems. I didn't know until then that one could actually buy just the anodized aluminum chimes (no longer available. They come in different colors. So making your own custom designs is possible!

This sort of project is also ideal for using up odd beads, broken or unwanted jewelry items.
