So ... what to do with a couple of reject beads?

.... make 'em into a quick clasp for your handbag zip.

I used a Tim Holtz Idea-ology findings (I think it's called a garment pin) and added two of the one-end-lemon-shaped beads  -  I love the look of mixed metals so went with brass and silver, but to tie it all together used the blue and green tiny faux glass pearls that I had in my stash.

I've got lots more of these beads so I think I'll make a similar one and give it away on WOYWW to somebody who leaves a comment.

This one is very pretty in real life and will be hanging off my large purple handbag this afternoon.
