Flash Back Friday - Beaded Stem Wine Glasses

When IronFish and I were registering for our wedding, I couldn't find wine glasses that I loved.  I also didn't see the point in registering for a dozen plus wine glasses with no place to put them in our tiny New York apartment.  That didn't mean I didn't want wine glasses though.  A few 50 cent glasses, a spool of fishing line, a few thousand left over seed beads and a dab of epoxy and 2 weeks later I had wine glasses!  Yup, pre-kids I could actually spend my evenings stringing seed beads onto yards and yards of fishing wire. 

Since each stem is one strand of beads, if a glass breaks I can just put the beads on another glass!
The fishing line is epoxied on the top and the bottom only, not the whole stem.  Maybe I need a glass one wine now....
Peace be with you,

I'll be linking up to some of these parties, stop by and check out the talent!

What a great way to embellish with beads. You've definitely got the wheels turning in my head now about how I can do something similar... thank you for the inspiration!
