Maunsell’s connections

Claire Maunsell doesn’t quite know what to call these new hollow polymer beads. I call them fabulous. The way her new “plank” beads interlock opens up a world of possibility. They’re rough and evoke fish or wood. She plans for this species to evolve.

Claire is great at making connections. See how her beads hug each other on her Etsy and Zibbet sites.

        Claire’s beads always have a magical quality! Her ability to imagine shapes that will work as beads just amazes me.

          Even before I read her blog I thought they looked like beautiful drift wood.

            They do look just like sun-bleached driftwood.
