A carrier bag full of glass stones. There's small round ones like marbles, bigger flat ones, clear glass and opaque, a lot of blue ones, and some are metalic. They are usually displayed in a dish as a table decoration. I would say there is at least one thousand if not more, I don't fancy counting them there are that many, they weigh a ton. And they only cost £1 for the whole bag.
Now all I have to do is think of a good idea for them. I have seen somewhere where you make a long narrow sausage out of some thin fabric, stuff beads inside one at a time, and tie a knot between each one, and you end up with a necklace. I might try that. I wonder if I can stick them to something with the hot glue gun? Hmm...I can see me doing a little experimenting tomorrow.
