Big Clear Glass Beads...What to Do?

A friend brought me some big clear hand blown beads back from an African vacation. Hmmmm. What to do?
 

They were too big for jewelry.
I wanted something that would catch the light. The beads really are beautiful!
A garage sale later, I bought a $.25
teapot and an idea was born. My garden shines!

  1. I would love to make one of these for my MIL for Christmas but I have a couple of questions. Is each bead on a separate string? And how did you attach them to the handle of the teapot? Just a knot, or did you use some kind of fastener? Thanks!

  7. Sorry for taking so long to respond, I have been taking a break from posting. The beads already had holes n them so I tied them individually to the handle with fishing line.
