My third treasure box from A Grain of Sand arrived a couple of days ago. Starting in the upper right of the pic there are white plastic 4 hole links, cowrie shells,& plastic flowers in copper, 2 shades of green & white. Moving down there are 4 gold plated bezels, a long gold accent, grey plastic rounds, clear long twisted bugles (for lack of something better to call them),&  large brass plated corrugated beads  with smaller silver corrugated beads under them. Below the silver corrugated beads is some copper chain, a few short links of small silver chain, smaller gold corrugated rounds. There is a bag of gold kidney earwires, Some interesting looking black wavy coins, & a bullseye bead. Followed by some brass(?) cages that I like. Above the cages there is a dark amber colored pineapple flat back. Moving to the right & above the pineapple is a pair of large hoops with attached crosses  & moving right again there are fancy & plain ovals. Now look left  of the pineapple to see 2 shiny black metallic cabs & several metallic  knot beads. Above the knots are white & then yellow plastic links that look cheap. It's fun to get these treasure boxes. I know that I will use some of the corrugated beads, the chain, the ovals, cages, bezels & probably the black wavy coins.   These boxes are kind of like a personal bead soup. If you follow Lori Anderson's bead soup blog party you know what I'm talking about & if you don't you might want to check it out. Here is a link to her blog
