If you don't have a project in mind, I recommend scooping a bunch of leftover beads into a baggie and taking them along for a bracelet challenge. In addition to your pocket tools, you'll need a spool of Beadalon 49, crimp tubes and a few clasps. Be sure to include some metallic beads for accents. Think outside your usual color combinations and challenge yourself to create a bunch of bracelets that will make great last-minute gifts in the chilly months to come!
